I purchased an English speaking tour, however all I got was a Spanish tour and an offer to pay extra if I wanted the tour in English. These caves are not safe for tourists. There are no clear paths to walk on and there are no handrails. The floors are very slippery and dangerous jagged rocks to climb over.
