Today was such a blast! Our guide Max was awesome and he made sure we were loaded on snacks, water and lots of cheer to keep going ! The views are breathtaking and the cave is pretty cool, the hike after getting into the cave is little but necessary as your legs need the stretch to get back and when you get to the top you’ll be quite amazed as me and my family were. We had a great time and Max made sure we had everything we needed to have a comfortable and enjoyable time. It’s a challenging trip for beginners as myself but still possible!!!!
