great place, the cave is huge, the 4 hour tour is amazing, you'll end up tired and thirsty so bring water and some snacks so you can have a bite when you finish exploring the cave. it is not recommended for people with phobias as the places can be really tight, with warm air or cold air and you'll find a lot of bugs and bats. nothing dangerous but some people may be scared of the little animals. the tour is just amazing and ultra-cheap. the guide will take you to really amazing places

You pay the guides in the parking lot. I am unsure if there are guides that speak english. We went there with our own guide, but the guys who work there still go with you.

This place was pretty amazing. One of the most impressive caves I have been in anywhere. Guide really spoke no English but we got along alright. The sheer size of this is what makes this so unique. We did the simple family tour. Parts were slippery so wear good shoes. They provide headlamps. Our guide pointed out parts of the longer tours. Looked like a lot more crawlingso I would be prepared to be dirty.
Lots of bats in here, as in probably any cave. Pretty neat to see them hanging but if they really creep you out you maybe should skip this.
Entering this is like a scene from a movie set, so much to look at and makes you feel so small.
Outside of all the ruins and some beaches to visit in this area this is a unique experience. It cost us like 300 pesos, just over perhaps. Not bad.

One of the cenotes there is seems like an island under the ground, very genuine not that full of tourist and surrounded by local country life.
