The caves themselves where absolutely amazing. Not to say the same for the guide who was rude. The tour is only in Spanish even though we who are Maltese speak fluent English and Italian. Guide is in Spanish only. You pay to see something you will never probably see again and you can not even take a picture. At one point my husband took is phone out saying do you think we get reception down here and the guide jumped on us rambling in Spanish and all I could understand was photo no. I no speak english. I do not know why you can not take photos. Then I understood it is to sell you an 8 euro photo outside that they take of you before you go in.

The guide was rude - we were not informed before buying the tickets or before entering that it was not possible to take photos during the tour (it seems like you have to pay 300 eur to get a photographer taking pics, we saw this when we left).

The caves themselves are absolutely stunning, I can't say the same for the guide unfortunately. We went with small children (which is fine if you hold their hand) but the guide had absolutely no consideration for us. Obviously the children walk slower, even more so if theyre being careful not to slip and fall, but the guide was walking so fast it was hard for us to keep up. She was so far ahead and rushing to finish for her lunch break, that we essentially just ran through the caves, unable to stop and look up at the amazing sights. Also, as soon as you fall a bit behind from the rest of the group the lights go off, so you're stuck in pitch black and have to fish out your phone for the torch mode. We asked her to slow down and be more considerate of the children but she ignored us. They say the tour is 50 minutes but it was only about 35'. I would absolutely love to go again but at a slower pace so we can actually take in the beauty surrounding us

The caves are spectacular and well worth the trip to Aracena, a couple of hours north of huelva. Pre booking is recommended as there are limited numbers each day.

This is a spectacular natural cave under the village of Aracena in the North of Huelva province (Andalucía). Depending on your guide the guided tour takes at least 50 minutes and is simply amazing. The grotto was the first Spanish cave to be opened to the public in 1913. It includes a total of about 2.000 square meters. Go there early as you need to purchase a spot in a tour group leaving at a pre-defined time. The later you go to Aracena, the longer you will have to wait for your tour to start. Ideally you should plan on visiting the grotto and have lunch before or after, based on the slots available. THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE MUST SEE!
