Impressive caves, much bigger than I thought. I couldn’t find the paintings in the caves - here the guide could be a bit better. But still very impressive and nice media day trip.

Loved all tbe amazing formations. The walk around tablet was clear and informative. Reasonably well lit. Lots of steps and some uneven levels. Blown away by the sight before my eyes.

We've been to caves in several places but these ones are quite spectacular and well worth visiting. Ten euro entrance fee. We got a taxi out from Nerja which cost around ten euro between four of us, including tip.

I would say no. Lots of steps, a little slippery in places and limited light.
