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 Taxco vacation using our convenient Taxco trip planner .

  • The grottoes are fantastic, the formations are super parents but is a single Guide for easy 200 people who come by group, I think that what you take out $$$ would give them to put more guides, as they do not use microphone so if you go halfway through the group already do not hear anything. Preferably do not go with children because the road is long and in the end or frightened by the dark or they get bored and they are scrub and scrub, there are places that are not for children

  • Nice place to visit, one of the big caves. Bring your own food, if you are vegetarian, no phone network, you can get direct bus from Mexico city Taxquena terminal. It cost you around 190 Mxn.
  • Very beautiful place. Extremely hot so take water and anti-slip shoes, it gets pretty dangerous. Also take a bit of change the narrator asks for a voluntary donation and the laughs are worth it 😉
  • Astonishing, a real must for everyone planning to visit Taxco or nearby places. Besides of the cavern visit (about 1 hour) there are some other activities, like canopy, travel by boat, rock climbing an some other stuff. Whatever you do please cover yourselves in mosquitoes repellant. Seriously. also, a good camera and a tripod are necessary for the visit to the cavern if you really want some cool photos. Smartphone cameras are nowhere as good as they need to be in such environment.
  • Nature's marvel, really amazing. Try the hanging bridge
  • 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!
