One of the world's largest cave systems, Parque Nacional Grutas de Cacahuamilpa features 20 underground spaces for exploration, plus another seventy as-yet unexplored. 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. Join one of the two-hour organized tours, or hire a local guide. If you go by yourself, bring a flashlight. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes for the 4 km (2 mi) return journey, which follows a slippery path. You don't have to wear warm clothes because of the cave's pleasant temperature. Facilities include restrooms at the halfway point. Plan to visit Parque Nacional Grutas de Cacahuamilpa during your Cacahuamilpa vacation using our convenient Cacahuamilpa trip planner.

Amazing experience! the grutas of Cacahuamilpa are an impressive and extraordinary place on earth, it's the largest accessible cave system in Mexico and even considered one of the largest in the world, it has a variety of formations and doesn't stop to amaze, at some point into the cave you can really appreciate the scope of it, the current walkable path takes around one hour and a half to reach the end, it's a must definite place to visit when in Mexico for a day or weekend trip!
It's a great place to visit: the views inside the cave are beautiful. It takes approximately two hours for the full trip. There are visits every hour. The place is cash only. Around the cave there are plenty of food stands to grab a bite
