    Tour picked us up from our hotel and we travelled about an hour from Puerta Princesca to the place. To note there is a lot of waiting and standing around on this tour. You have to wait for a small boat to take you to an island and then you wait again to go into the caves. We spent more time waiting than anything else.

    In saying that I would recommend this tour. It was good when you got into the caves and to learn about the history of them on headphones.

    Visiting the cave entails timing . Entering is a physical challenge somewhat. Need to contort somewhat. Inside is a beauty with several rock formations. Passage of light inside makes for good photo opportunities.

    My family and I did a combination scuba and snorkeling trip. It was pretty wavy when we got there and the current became strong so the snorkelers were unable to go. The dive was interesting and say some amazing sea life however the visibility could have been better.

    We were driving from the underground river back to Puerto when we saw the signs to the caves so we decided to stop
    When we got to the end of the road and parked everyone came out to greet us and welcome us and made us feel welcome. We brought just enough money for all 3 of us to take the tour so make sure you have a little bit of cash on you. The guides took my daughter by the hand and helped her through the whole tour and were so nice and knowledgable and it was a very good experience I'm so glad we went. My daughter is usually scared of the dark but she did so good in the caves and she wants to go back.

    Great ride from el Nido on scooter..free open road with no traffic away from el Nido town...I found the cave and the fact they have discovered human bones some 15,000 years old. Tiger bones to!. The road is now fully concrete to this cafe from el Nido. Well worth a visit..in your way back watch the sun set at nacpan beach..

    I've been here two years ago when I attended one my seminar-workshops...First day of arrival, the organizers were not yet ready; and so we were told to tour around city of Palawan. We took our time (roommates).. Nag ambag2x kami renting a van...we enjoyed a lot, 'though, I was having a headache due to the headset pressed my head.

    We really enjoyed the adventure of this caving experience. One thing I do caution. To get through many of the tight spaces in this cave complex, no one with a larger than a American size 38 waist should attempt this adventure, Sorry. I am right there,and it was a real question if I would be successful, or stuck,and need rescuing with oil poured over my back and belly to get through. If you do make it through, the rewards are impressive. A wonderful adventure, especially for the kids.

    Nice cave, totally different experience than touristy caves in Europe, some bats and strange animals living there.
