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.

  • The place has a magnificent view, nestled between mountains since you go already it is quite an adventure. You can enjoy a lot for a reasonable price. it good: the view spectacular, it fun of them pools and it relaxing of the pools, it adventurer of the Grotto. The bad: distances to walk if you want to move between areas, the entrance to the caves with small children you can be more traumatic than fun. Recommendations:-take camera or cell phone water proof or in case of not having none if it is highly recommended buying a protector (there same sell them but they are rather expensive)-must bring water shoes, sandals tend to leak and lost with the force of the water, and go barefoot for those who are not accustomed to walking cobbled becomes complicated.

  • I'll do the bad part of the assessment: * the place is crowded! There are people in tents everywhere, preparing food and drinking in bottles in the river. Place always busy and full. * If you want to sleep there, get well soon (because I didn't get) and get soon your room (I couldn't, coming 12:00). They don't take reservations. * Mexican is a gentle people (there in the lobby, not), familiar and lightweight. But are very invasive and aggressive with the things of nature. Where they put the hand if it loses its originality. If there's one thing they don't know is the minimal impact on nature. You will see this in Tolantongo. Other than that, is one of the craziest places I've ever been. Imagine a river of hot water rising within a cave. Inside the cave, a large pit and the River with Rapids (accessible to anyone who wants to, as space officials, with ropes and lanterns, you allow access to some extent, in the midst of darkness). On the walls of the cave, incredible hot water jets, from several directions. And, finally, at the entrance of the grotto, a beautiful waterfall of icy waters, making a great veil. And there's more: this river goes down for bed Rapids until a more stable part (I believe the Mexicans have changed the place). And down blue! Hot and blue. It's amazing. In the complex, not nearby the cave (gotta get some internal bus), you can relax in the albercas (piscininhas) of hot water, with an amazing view of the mountain. Couldn't sleep inside the complex, but at the home of a resident. If you do not find vacancies in the hotel, ask about it. Has restaurant and bars until 11:00 pm. Has the gap with the basics too. The albercas close 8:00 pm, but the crowd is even later than that. There's no nearby towns. But the basics are there. To tents, if you want.
