Parque Nacional Grutas de Cacahuamilpa, Central Mexico and Gulf Coast

(240+ reviews on the web)
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. 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.

  • We enjoy visiting caves and this one has by far the largest array of grand rooms we have ever seen. It surpasses easily Carlsbad in that area. The ceilings are at least ten stories in many of the room...  more »
  • Amazing caves. The story of the guide though is a litle boring. Not much of the history of the cave and more like here we see something like a cat and here we see something like a dog etc etc. A pity ...  more »
  • The place is great. One of the biggest in Mexico, worth a visit. We where there in a holiday so lots of tourists, every half hour a new tour would go in. A guide takes you trough the vaults (Spanish o...  more »

  • 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 Alarc√≥n. 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.
  • Great treasure of nature
