  • When I have guests, I often skip the natural pool and make sure we make it to the caves before they are locked for the night; I think they are far more interesting. The Quadirkiri cave is tall enough to walk in and has two openings that let some light in (although you may still want your phone flashlight). If you get there at a time when no one else is around, you will likely see some fruit bats flying around as you make your way through the cave.
  • Not a bunch to see, but if you like caves, this might be fun. The cave is dry and lots of bats in the cave to greet you. Would be better if it was bigger, as it is maybe 100 ft.
