    Pedro our guide took us through several caves in which there was no one. They left us time to take photos in the most famous ones and we took a bath. Depending on the waves it can be hard to return, but in two hours we covered very few kilometers, we were waiting or taking photos.

    Cool experience with varied caves. The Beganil Cave is very crowded and touristy, but then it became very exciting and varied in the other caves. I found the group size of the tour too big and would have liked a little more explanation from the guides, so I deducted 1 star.

    Super fun experience. I, who have never kayaked before, solved it brilliantly. Super important to be on time because it is HARD to find parking. We got there at 09:50 but after parking, 10:15 (it started at 10). We still got help, but it was just luck. Super good guide. The cave was awesome as well as the elephant mountain. Cozy trip on a kayak. Strongly recommend.
