  • The timing of the tours are not well explained. We drove out here to take a tour to find out to find this little sign saying when certain tours were being offered. Had to go back.... Do some research ...  more »
  • I recommend wide mind visiting this place. It was a cave used by the Maya as a place of ceremonies, is mystical. It is recommended to go in groups of 3 people or more, the cost of 100 MXM per person. The guide accompanies them, to us accompanied us don Francisco and we loved, much known and is a very nice gentleman. Tours in Spanish are at 9 am, 12 am and 14 pm-16 pm. If they go to another time and are three or more people, just give them the tour. It's nothing dangerous. There are parking lots. I highly recommend it.

  • what is Tlaloc doing here?
  • Great experience and an nice guide.
  • Beautiful! I loved the caves! It is a place extremely humid and warm, and travel is pretty tired. It's 30 minutes of walking 20 meters below the level of the floor, to see Mayan offerings and an eye of water.
