For thousands of years, our ancestors used the cave system for dwelling, performing sacred ceremonies, and store food. Join us in this journey to the underworld. We provide the headlights, helmets, life jackets, kayaks, and an experienced guide. All geared up, the guides led you through a forest path, sharing local uses of the plants seen along the trail. At the caves entrance, the guide shares information as to the seven caves layout, kayaking equipment familiarization and kayak route. Here you will notice awesomely large cave entrances with a crystal-clear river flowing through them. As you paddle, you will go through a series of caves and see many formations. The guide will show you places to stop, rest, and enjoy a refreshing swim. The paddling continues through the cave systems until you arrive at the exit, where the sunlight glitters on the water and the birds can be heard singing on the river bank. We store our gear,use the facilities,and prepare for the drive home. Reserve Now.
