On busy days get there a bit early to find a seat with a view. Don't forget to turn around and watch the river of bats move as if they are choreographed: indulating and twisting through the evening skies. This is also a good place...More

After the gruesomeness of The Killing Cave, this was a delight. We sat and had food and a drink while millions of bats exited over the course of an hour, or so. We met some fun locals selling their wares and it seemed more like...More
