Tolantongo Caves, Ixmiquilpan

(500+ reviews on the web)
Hot Spring Cave
Take a dip in the mystical paradise that is Tolantongo Caves high in the mountains. The caves are divided into two areas. The larger grotto features a warm natural pool, stalactites, stalagmites, and an increase in temperature as a result of mineral-rich water misting in from the ceiling and walls. Rest in the flowing stream inside the cave or unwind in the waterfall pools, which are natural cliffside springs. For the adventurous, experience a 1,800 m (1.1 mi) zipline or the suspension bridge. Listen to the echoes of the waterfall with mountains all around.
