A central gallery connects large salons with a height that ranges from 20 to 81 m (65 to 265 feet). The history of the caves dates back to the pre-Hispanic era.

Being from Monterrey, Mexico I have always heard from these caves, which, happen to be Mexico’s largest cave system. They are impressive and majestic. It does require to walk for several miles and climb some steps but it is worth the effort. If you are visiting with a group of 10 or more, it would be worth it to inquire about a private guide instead of a collective guide.
First time going to any cave site and it was really fun. It's totally worth the drive. The tour guide was entertaining and informative. You'll never forget the cool dark site within. I'll definitely come back.
