We took a tour direct from our hotel in Sabang which was a little more expensive than booking individually, but a lot less hassle. We got a private banker from Sabang to the beech at the caves entrance, from there we were escorted to smaller...More

The early morning sunlight kisses the leaves of the jungle trees. Road construction makes for a bumpy terrain but doesn’t deter my childlike wonder as this van bobs and weaves, far too quickly, around sharp corners and slower vehicles pushing onward towards the Sabang Subterranean...More

100% totally worth visiting. Be careful with bat pooping. Guides are great, they show light with headlamps, also pointing to things to watch. Everyone uses digital guides on earphones because you cant talk there.

We went yesterday, it was a nice experience and they say it the #7 New Wonders of the World so I’m glad we did it but I’m not sure I would recommend it to my friends. It was about 1.5 hour van ride with crazy...More

An experience of a lifetime. Extremely beautiful and serene river cruise. Natural rock formations and bats inside the cave. Naturally dark and still.

They are very Catholic so I would guess that it’s closed. There’s no website? Or can you call the Colosseum (PP city hall that gives the permits). Either way I say spend more time in El Nido!
