Ye gads man! Caves?!? That is where the bats and the bat guano are. Willingly going into caves (unless you are a miner) is a bit crazy, but hell, have at it. Willingly going into a certifiable "bat ****" zone without mask, meds and a lot of counseling trying to talk you out of that is nuts.
I went to Costa Rica, visited a volcano. Did not jump into the lava even though the local health department never mentioned I was not fireproof.
