Parque Nacional Grutas de Cacahuamilpa, Central Mexico and Gulf Coast

Must see · National Park · 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.

  • Being from Monterrey, Mexico I have always heard from these caves, which, happen to be Mexico’s largest cave system. They are impressive and majestic. It does require to walk for several miles and climb some steps but it is worth the effort. If you are visiting with a group of 10 or more, it would be worth it to inquire about a private guide instead of a collective guide.
  • First time going to any cave site and it was really fun. It's totally worth the drive. The tour guide was entertaining and informative. You'll never forget the cool dark site within. I'll definitely come back.
  • An amazing place! 2 kilometers long with several vaults inside with astonishing rock formations, huge stalactites and stalagmites. A place you must go!! Entrance (December 2018) is $80 pesos
