We had heard about the caves and thought they would be fun to see. As mentioned in other reviews, the pictures posted are not even close to what these caves look like. They are grey, dark, full of bats, and have no water cascading over...More

It's worth giving a pit stop to. Warning: there are bats and cockroaches. When you go into the cave you can really imagine how pirates climbed in and used it to hide barrells and goods! I love a good historical landmark!
