To get to the Quiocta Cave is a little complicated because of the long ride and the scarcity of public transportation. Inside you can see a cave with a few stalactites and stalagmites, but be sure to bring plastic boots because it is muddy and...More

Visiting this cave was a highlight of our trip. The site is very basic without many upgrades for tourists like lights and clean walkways- which is great with me - just be ready to walk through mud and underground streams to seem some amazing stalagmites...More

All I can say is this, I had a dream about this cave and to walk in to it and see it exactly as pictured was amazing. Only allowed in with a tour guide, you'll be given boots for the process. Its very wet and...More

Easy to access ancient tomb. Cave is interesting in its own right, but it's ancient use age ads another dimension. The reason it has taken so long to be discovered is another dimension. North Peru has so much to be found still !

We walked to the entrance and was treated by an owl flying out of the cave. The cave is not overly developed but does need expert protection to preserve the geological structures found inside. It is a wet and muddy experience and the cave was...More
