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. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Tolantongo Caves by using our Ixmiquilpan day trip tool .

  • The place is fascinating. Recommended minimum 3 nights stay, so that it can take advantage of and enjoy well. That spectacular mountain where thermal water exits on all sides, making waterfalls and waterfalls adorning it in a special way and green flowing passing make magic place. Entering the caves of the mountain is a great spectacle since the rock formations that inside are beautiful. There is a part that has the shape of an inverted V where falls flushing as a watering can, which is a delicious massage. The river is wonderful since they have made him a kind of prey where separate sections in the river and you can swim like a swimming pool where the water always flows and tones are in turquoise blue. It is another of so many wonders that Mexico has to reach the river and mountain have some vans that take you to the place by $10.00 USD per section. It is very convenient since the roads are muddy and slippery and they have experience in managing in these areas. Next to the mountain by many sides they have pools where the water always flows and be calientita water you relax and enjoy it in a delicious way. Everything that nature has given to the State of Hidalgo is sensational. We stayed in the Paradise Hotel near the pocitas which is already nice that walk in the pool. The detail here is that people from the entrance to the cave when you get in your car, are not kind, seems to do you the favor of let you. Missing those who manage and organize this place be visionary, receive more instruction in terms of tourist and polished in the construction of rooms. Since these are very basic, too small, it has no place to put luggage or anything to hang clothes, bath it is missing where hang towels and touched me that when I get my sheets were stained. To go to reception and that to change them you need to climb many stairs. This place is not recommended for people who have trouble walking. They have a treasure trove of place and if reversed him wanting that tourists tubiera more amenities and accept reservations this place would be a paradise. They receive only cash and have several restaurants where you can eat well.

  • We went to Grutas Tolantongo from Mexico City and were glad we made the trip out there. We took public transportation, which was a little long and slightly complex so i think driving would be easier, ...  more »
