Parque Nacional Grutas de Cacahuamilpa, Central Mexico and Gulf Coast

4.6
#9 of 75 in Nature in Central Mexico and Gulf Coast
Cave National Park
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.

  • This place has tours on the hour with your paid admission, but you can also hire a private guide for about $20US. The caves were only discovered about 100 years ago, so they are not totally commercial...  more »
  • Camera, comfortable shoes and eager to walk. It is a stunning place, the most beautiful I've seen. Admire the nature and its creation at its finest. It's great to see the creations of nature and that there is no way to describe them. You should visit the place and simply. The entrance fee is $70.00 and lasts approximately two hours. There is health in the middle of the road. It is open all year round and they open at 10 am, starting every hour travel guide by group. From the city of Mexico is approximately three hours by car. Unmissable visit, the best in our country.

  • Great place. It's an amazing opportunity to know a natural beauty in Mexico. The caes are impressive and beautiful.
  • One more time Mexico's natural wonders offer a one of a kind experience. A mix of mother earths incomparable art talent and local people idiosyncratic imagination will take your breath away. Just two and a half hours out of Mexico city and in the way to Acapulco beach. Great!
  • Really great place. Fantastic guides, nice people all over and very well maintained interior to the cave. Paved path makes it easy to see the whole thing without worrying too much about where you're going.
  • A group of local friends from Toluca took me here on a random trip, which I found absolutely amazing! Coming from NZ we have caves but I have never seen anything like these. For a bit of a drive and $80 MXN entrance it has been a highlight of my trip. Bring your imagination too as the guided explanation of the rock formations are really cool plus everything you are able to see yourself. Highly recommend.
  • The park is amazing, you cannot afford to miss this site if you are ever inTaxco de Alarcón. The entire cave system has a walkway do you don't have to worry about getting hurt in the dark as everything is illuminated as well.
