Parque Nacional Grutas de Cacahuamilpa, Central Mexico and Gulf Coast

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. Plan to visit Parque Nacional Grutas de Cacahuamilpa during your Cacahuamilpa vacation using our convenient Cacahuamilpa trip planner .

    The caverns are beautiful! It is about a 2 hour trip through the cavern. A guide walks you through to the end. Then you walk back on your own at your own pace. It is very dark and wet. Sneakers are a ...  more »

    There are many people suffering from this experience for not wearing the appropriate attire, I recommend footwear with sufficient grip and comfortable because they are Rocky suiperficies and some humidity, ojo not smooth soles, also be possible shorts such as Bermuda, and t-shirt or something light for top, where only a vest or sweatshirt light is cool, not coats or shawls, do not bring anything hanging like bags or long necklaces. the walk is something proolongada so do not carry baggage or heavy things.

    I went to the caves in a tour that had the memory that was in very nice place to visit, it was really a good experience, the only thing that seemed out of place is to turn off bathroom lights and lights of the places more beautiful could stay where Conte mplar for a few moments, the only moments where you turn on the lights when the guides give explanation in a particular place of the tour, however, I do recommend it to visit.

    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.
