4.6/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web
One of the world's largest cave systems, Parque Nacional Grutas de Cacahuamilpa features 20 underground spaces for exploration, plus another seventy as-yet unexplored. A central gallery connects large salons with a height that ranges from 20 to 81 m (65 to 265 feet). The history of the caves dates back to the pre-Hispanic era. Join one of the two-hour organized tours, or hire a local guide. If you go by yourself, bring a flashlight. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes for the 4 km (2 mi) return journey, which follows a slippery path. You don't have to wear warm clothes because of the cave's pleasant temperature. Facilities include restrooms at the halfway point. Use our Cacahuamilpa vacation trip planner to arrange your visit to Parque Nacional Grutas de Cacahuamilpa and other attractions in Cacahuamilpa.

  • The Grutas de Cacahuamilpa National Park is amazing, it is located in the State of Guerrero, Mexico. You must wear comfortable shoes because you will have to go up and down many stairs and stones (also there are Tyrolean), entering the caves is suitable consider the resistance of your companions, since when ingresad to the cave which will have a surface of 10 to 70 meters. subgrade and walk 2 km, since it is a single input and output, is amazing the journey and the formations of rocks for years, therefore there is moisture and this slippery floor, the light that you will appreciate each of the Chambers of the caves is turned on and off by the travel guide, so you can not go back only or stay at halfway point by not being able to continue stay in the dark Enter sell you lanterns (are recommended). Carry water, a small towel of choice and go to the bathroom before entering! The cost of admission for adults is $75.-

  • Great place you must go to see this wonderful place.
  • Great outdoors place and spectacular views
  • This place is amazing and well worth the drive from Cuernavaca to get there - only about one hour away. The facility is very well done and the interior of the caves has a great path that is lighted in a very cool way. Be ready to walk- it's a long way in and back out - maybe 2-3 miles, but there are lots of places to sit down and relax and there are bathrooms inside the caves as well. Again, very well worth the effort and safe for all the family. I took my 7 year-old and in laws here and they were blown away. My kid wanted to come back several times during the trip.
