Tolantongo Caves, Ixmiquilpan
(3.6/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Not be if it is highly recommended to go with very young children given that the change in temperature when you leave the caves can hurt them, but is a very nice and very cheap place to stay in touch with nature

  • It's a wonderful place, with natural pools, and sparkling waters at the top of a mountain, the top of the mountain we have a incredible view, we came across a track, and going down the mountain on a zip line! One of the most beautiful places I've ever met in my life. Is very worthwhile!

  • The place is magical, enjoy the caves, the river and the pools where you can relax in a very special way, enjoying the scenery. You can't stop entering the tunnel, you pull the canopy, and to camping or make a meal on the banks of the river. Access to the place you charge per day and per person ($120 day/person) review activities include access ticket guides can guide you, in any season of the year you can find a lot of people, it is recommended to enjoy a week-end 2 days, allowing camping on the banks of the River (it is advisable to carry repellent, lamps and well covered preference clothing long sleeve) either rent a room at one of the hotels ($700 room for) two persons), there is variety of restaurants very good, with a variety of dishes, I recommend the restaurant El Paraiso Escondido, very good house specialty dish. Visit the site in the company of my wife and cousins, do not forget to wear water shoes (can find them in various roles on arrival at the caves), bring their towels and buy protector for cell phones and cameras, the distance from Pachuca to the caves is 80 kms. approximately, but the transfer is slow since to get they will have to go through many villages and is done in time 2.5 hours approx., there is caution in the last 10 km before reaching the caves since it is a short stretch of winding, descending on the saw (with a spectacular view) but they should be careful because the vans and trucks local tend to travel very fast out of the curves and are only 2 Rails, to get work underway on the road so you have to be very alert, especially in times of rain.
