Description

Cantabon Cave is not developed, but it is a rather easy horizontal passage, 300m long and most of the time about 10m wide. It is rather easy to visit, only lamps ar mandatory. However, a helmet, good shoes and old clothes are always a good idea in wild caves. On the otherhand, pictures on the web show most people go in shorts and sandals.

There is an official cave guide named Ivan Victor Ibay. He looks after the cave, checks that nobody breaks dripstones, collects birds nests or leaver rubbish. The cave is protected by law, and as it is an important source of income for the locals it is protected very seriously.
