Tolantongo Caves, Ixmiquilpan

3.5
#2 of 10 in Parks in Hidalgo
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.

  • Extraordinary place to visit, only 3 hours from the city of Mexico will find this wonderful place, where the main attractions are the river of springs and the cave and cavern place where springs water, postcards incredible unique scenery hidden in the Hidalgense mountains, visit entry exit or stay in one of their hotels or camping on the banks of the river there three main recommendations 1 essential water shoe (no sandals), 2 Sun protection and 3 really wanted to have fun. You can arrive by car or by bus arriving first in Ixmiquilpan and hence leaves a transport to the caves.

  • It is an excellent site with very beautiful landscapes and interesting places to visit, such as the pools and caves. They charge $20 to move the parking of buses to the parks and $5 within the premises of the Park. Despite the fact that the page says that they allow the entry of food, the reality is that to enter certain areas of the Park (pools and grottoes) do not allow access to food or luggage, only in swimsuit. The service of the people responsible for the store of Souvenirs from the restaurant "Paradise" is bad, ask one of which shipped at this place, responding reluctantly. Similarly in the canopy, the Manager gives a bad service. Furthermore this outstanding Park.

  • First that nothing some recommendations. 1 bring footwear for beach or water shoe for the river. 2. a water Chamber or a good bag against water for the cell. 3 If you're truck is a little complicated since you will have to walk a lot. For those who go by car at the time of entering the Grotto there are some lockers that charge you 50 pesos but have to leave 100 if you do not want to have a bad time is worth keep your car keys, money and your ticket. Well now I will continue to reach the caves is the parking of buses, the truth had already read several reviews that helped me decide to go during the week, so we went on Wednesday. We had very few people could enjoy everything in a single day. When you arrive, there are two tickets one saying grottoes and other paradise. Where are the pó. I recommend to go first to caves and what is far more likely. As the caves that is beautiful. The pools and the River all is very father. In particular I carry two children aged 5 and 6 both with their vests and enjoy more since you know that does not happen to them nothing. In terms of the pó what father looks great is the view. The food isn't anything otherworldly tortas, quesadillas etc.
