Parque Nacional Grutas de Cacahuamilpa, Central Mexico and Gulf Coast

(240+ reviews on the web)
Cave
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.

  • We enjoy visiting caves and this one has by far the largest array of grand rooms we have ever seen. It surpasses easily Carlsbad in that area. The ceilings are at least ten stories in many of the room...  more »
  • The road from the center of Taxco is not very long but if a bit heavy because so many curves in the road, when you arrive you feel relieved, the cost is very affordable $70 and $80 pesos, is a long travel 4 km in total of back and forth, obviously more and more deep, so you should consider your physical condition and blood before entering pressure It is only a recommendation, form groups and are assigned a guide who are really quite good, the girl who took care of my journey, knew very well the history of the place of pleasant way and was very funny, clear at the end that depends on the tip that you want to contribute, the place is awesome from the first step the explanation of the formations are very good and with the help of your imagination, the lights and the environment, manage to see incredible forms, I definitely would, is a highly recommended place, there are more attractions, but now it did not have more time, the only thing which was not to my liking is the food out, but caves are amazing, do not forget to bring a souvenir handmade.

  • I visited the caves of Cacahuamilpa Easter from 2016. I didn't even know that they existed! We arrived in passing on our trip to Taxco. The place is very populous and when you get isn't something insignificant. In how much we got us started selling walking sticks to help us in the fall. Not worth buying poles because there are steps and is not really necessary. We were in a group and hired a guide. It seems to me that it is always good idea to hire guides. The entrance is a hotel much more comprehensive than I expected. It turns out that the Grotto is huge! You walk much underground and the spaces are very large. Let me clarify this because I thought it was a simple cave. There is a path that you guide throughout the tour and more or less to the middle of the road there are some banquitas seating and bathrooms. The tour lasts about an hour. Photos do not go well for the lighting. It is simply wonderful! Something worth watching! It is an indescribable feeling to be in caves!
