Parque Nacional Grutas de Cacahuamilpa, Central Mexico and Gulf Coast
(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.

  • I pass the data, if they are in transport public can take the metro direction taxqueña and down there, leaving this central South and the line of trucks going to the caves of cacahuamilpa are the "pullman", but only on weekends at 8:30 and 9: 30 (unique routes) in travel almost 3 hrs. And it costs $171. Eye - during the week there are no shuttle public. The site of the caves opens at 9:00-5:00 pm. And it costs $80 per person.

  • Great place you must go to see this wonderful place.

  • 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.
