These caves are considered to be one of the oldest tourist attractions in Cuba; they are open to visitors since the 1860s. The impressive halls and galleries are filled with beautiful stalactites and stalagmites, many other unique limestone formations. Indigenous paintings and fossils have also been found here. The explored area is 3 km long and the area open to visitors is about 1 km long. The entrance of the cave goes down many steps (man-made) and the rest of the visit is on a fairly flat path, the cave is humid and warm, so good walking shoes and light clothing are suggested.
