  • To reach the caves we take a van with a value of 20 pesos per person, the trip lasted about 40 minutes. Arriving at the place you are harassed by many street vendors with memories, you have to be decided to say no and focus you choose your package to the caves. They are the caves, a suspension bridge, a Tyrolean, a boat ride, and an excursion on the River in the lower part of the routes where you can swim. Personally, I didn't leave me so I chose caves canopy and hanging bridge package which cost 200 pesos per person. We hope a few moments to enter. Outside the caves sold food, desserts, sweets and souvenirs, also there are bathrooms with a heat of 5 pesos. Caves are breathtaking, a distance of 2 km inward and two back, the journey was a little overwhelming for seniors aged 50, personally I do not I was tired, I recommend to go with clothes comfortable either jeans or bermuda , comfortable shoes and a shirt. I recommend not to touch the stones inside the cave, and care for the caves to better preserve their State. The suspension bridge cause vertigo, but if you like strong emotions I recommend it and carries your cell to take some photos or videos when you're halfway, the titolesa is fun although it will say very little, almost 20 seconds.

  • Already several years that have used travel rl of the Rio Chontalcuatlan, they are however is the first time that carried it out with a mountaineering Association, I have to say that the place is still incredible, although if I think that there was movement within the caves as a result of the Quake of September, which gives you another plus that is nothing more than other years. The best is out and climb to eat s the fonditas where I recommend asking a green Enchiladas with cecina and potatoes the French, since after the great walk, it helps to recover. LP malp as always is that hikers are still leaving trash on the road, so it isn't more carry a bag to pick up the garbage that is on the road. Olvlden not wear a helmet and vest for travel

  • Excellent place to meet. Cost 80 adults, 70 children (up to 12) and 50 INAPAM. The parking lot is small, so I recommend arriving early. The first group leaves at 10 am (only you can visit in a group led by a guide). The journey to the end of the cave takes between 1:25 to 1:30 led Guide. Already after one returns only that, depending on the step and the size of the group that is going, it can take between 30 and 45 minutes. I recommend very comfortable clothes for lots of walking and climbing stairs. Inside is very hot (wet), so light clothing, even shorts and a t-shirt is ideal. Inside there are wheelchairs but you only carry up to where it begins the stairs, you only have to give a tip to who takes you, they have no cost.

  • 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!
