For 5 cuc entry you get an introduction about the resident bats and the cave drawings. To our surprise, the friendly guide then handed us his flashlight so we could explore the cave on our own. Haha, back in Canada they would have made us wear hard hats and safety boots and the guide would not have strayed from our... More

Small but interesting cave in the eco park on Varadero. Follow the trail through the park to reach the cave.

We just have some walk and found this cave. Guide was super nice. Show us bats families, told stories about painting and let us make as many photos as we whished. I'm strongly recommended to go there once you are in Varadero.

It's open at 10 am. The cost is 5 CUC per person (kids 6 y.o. and less are free). The cave is very nice, it's possible to see the fruit bats from the very close distance. Pay attention to under your feet as well, don't step on the cockroaches, potato bugs and small creatures that are abundant there. The kids... More

Very interesting and very close to our hotel (Ierostar Tainos) so we walked to the cave. We did take a torch but they do provide you with a large torch.

Most interesting feature of the Hicacos Penisula after the beach and reef snorkeling. Easy to access for anyone. Take the bus for 5 CUC from anywhere along the Hicacos Peninsula. After the cave visit the Reserva Ecologica de Varahicacos
