Parque Nacional Grutas de Cacahuamilpa, Central Mexico and Gulf Coast
(4.6/5 based on 220+ 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 important thing is to arrive early because he is joined by groups from 10 in the morning. When you enter it is not very impressive because you think that much more to do there is but once you walk away from the entrance and you begin to appreciate the vastness of the cave you can find inside a unimaginable underground world of stalactites and stalagmites with more than 30 meters. and varied designs that nature has created. It is a place that you can not miss.

  • To get you have to pay and wait for hours, as accessed in groups with guides (thing that years ago not be toward). There are that go prepared to walk almost 2 hrs., the temperature is calida-humeda, recommend clothing fresh and footwear comfortable (nothing of thongs, heels, etc.) Is an experience wonderful, see the formations natural. Leaving $75.00 you can descend into the raft River, hence the Chontalcoatlan rivers come together and San Jerónimo, which pass directly under the caves, the ride is 25 min. about and leave you in a small beach where you can eat quesadillas and to return to the parking lot there are 3 options on foot, on horseback or in pickup truck. The caves are 100% recommended, something different to see.

  • It was an excellent experience and I was pleasantly surprised! The maintenance of the caves is very good and there is a road delimited where can make all the ride. In addition the entry ticket includes a group guide who makes several stops along the way. The tour lasts 2 hours approx. recommend take light clothing and athletic shoes, as there are high humidity inside the scream and the floor is slippery by the same moisture.

Mexico is Beautiful !!! If you wanted to visit all of Mexico it would take 2 years thats what my aunt said and she was a teacher!
  • Great place you must go to see this wonderful place.
  • Great outdoors place and spectacular views
  • Peaceful
  • 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.
