This was a wet cave tour where you walked in a little bit of water most of the trip. You did crawl and have to duck a little in some areas

Very cool
Our tour guide Allan was great! Our experience was quick but memorable for sure. The caves were great, I was glad to have borrowed the rain boots that they offer on the excursion because the caves were very wet. Apparently ours was on a lighter day in terms of water and the water was about up to our knees most of the time.

Loved this trip. I have been to Costa Rica a few times. I've ziplined and gone horse back riding but this was amazing! Crawling through tunnels (not to narrow) though waterfalls, seeing bats and learning all about nature. Our guide was amazing. I felt safe the whole time.

AMAZING. For both Thrill-seekers and families. The tour guides will adjust to fit your needs! 10/10!!
If I could give more stars, I would. Albert was our guide and from the moment he picked us up, he began teaching us about Costa Rica, animals, and plants. He was so knowledgeable about Costa Rican ecology and biology. Albert and the tour driver both were very kind, friendly, and talkative with us. We saw a sloth in the road on the way to the cave, and they stopped to let us look without hesitation. Albert insisted on taking pictures for us and we never felt like we were burdening him with photo taking or our questions. The caves were AMAZING. We saw so many animals and learned a lot about the cave history and geology. We got to crawl through tight spaces, see underground waterfalls, and climb up some rocks into tunnels. We could be adventurous but we were never pushed to do something we were uncomfortable with. Some snacks and drinks were provided after. 10/10 recommended for both families and thrill-seekers. The guide will adjust as needed to suit your needs.

Amazing fun and interesting cave tour

Our driver, Mario, was awesome, stopping to show us monkeys in the trees and discussing highlights to see while in town. The tour guide, Henry, made the tour fun, interesting, and educational. Definitely a must see when in La Fortuna.

so much fun!!
Dec 2019 • Family
Our family had an amazing time! Our guide was Elvis and he made the experience so much more fun! Definitely take the adventurous path rather than the walk through because it is really exciting and doable for all ages our 9 yr old daughter did it and had a fantastic time! We learned so much and got to see bats and spiders (I am terrified of them but our guide somehow made it cool rather than scary) Also make sure you purchase the photos!! Taking your own camera won’t be possible due to the small climbs and lack of proper lighting in the cave but the photographer does an incredible job of capturing the moment! He took some videos as well!! Overall an amazing experience 10/10 recommend this for anyone in the area!!

Loved it
Aug 2019 • Family
This tour is a lot of fun. When reading the reviews I read that someone said it does not compare to Carlsbad which is true but these caves are not "man" touched. It doesn't have a fancy walkway, you are literally walking through water and rocks. Bring a change of clothes you will need it as you are crawling in small caves with water. I'm very happy that I booked this tour and my 18 year old niece loved it as well. Do not take your phone or cameras, we hired the photographer there and we had great pics for a cheap price.
