We love to visit caves all over the U.S. and Mexico. This one is one of the best. The tours are well organized and easy to access. The rock formations are amazing. The surrounding grounds are beautiful. It is definitely worth your time!
You MUST see this incredible geological site. A limestone cave that allows you to journey back over 1 million years to see history literally beneath your feet. Easy access and great for all ages. Staff is beyond excellent and the experience is once in a lifetime. What an absolute hidden treasure.
We had such a fun time exploring the cave. It’s not something you see every day.
This was such a fascinating place to check out! Definitely a hidden gem.
A very impressive cave tour definitely suitable for smaller kids and up. Lots of interesting things to see, kids were enthralled the whole time.
We had heard of this natural wonder and finally had a chance to experience the hidden gem it is! The tour is only an hour plus there are other attractions for the kids to do.
This is definitely something you need to go to at least once in your lifetime! To see how nature creates its own beauty is just amazing to see!
Truly awesome. Astonishing beauty. The cave is beautifully lit. The tour proceeds like a musical score, with tight spots and twisting paths that open into soaring, cathedral-like spaces. The tour guides seem to love being there, and who wouldn’t?
A must see! The cave is facinating for adults and children. The guide was very informative and funny, very enjoyable!!
