Take a guided tour to explore Grutas Las Marias, a network of deep caves featuring unusual rock formations and stalactites. Tours are conducted using the light of homemade candles, which add to the eerie atmosphere and your overall experience. Make sure you wear a swimsuit and rubber shoes, as this cave features several natural pools and a very slippery floor. Not recommended for claustrophobia sufferers.

  • the caves were stunning with huge formations. It was really worth the visit and I saw a load of bats to which was very interesting.  more »
  • You're going to be in the water all the time, you have to walk against the current, climb ladders, jump down waterfalls, everything just in the light of candles( except you bring a headlamp yourself) ...  more »
  • From swimming in narrow caves to jumping into a pool, you can have absolutely everything there. Sometimes quite tight. Don't forget shoes (no sandals) and your action cam. Best adventure so far.  more »
