This place is amazing. From the local cosine on the bottom before heading up to the amazing churros and elote. This place is a natural beauty created by the earth. Went an hour before closing and the tour is about 40-50 minutes long and will walk you through the cave and various looking points. There's two ways of going up... More

The Grutas (caves) were absolute wonders to behold... the views inside and out were stunning, and the gondola ride was fun, as well.

This caves were discovered 100 years ago and now you can visit them if you have a car. Please, don't eat in the small places outside the caves... My boyfriend got food poisoned :(

Recommended to visit during the day since roads there can be lonely roads with potential crooks waiting for you to pass. Clean facilities and great views from the top, some refreshments sold there and clean restrooms.

Great place, must be here on your trips to Monterrey, just avoid the vacation time, because the time to enter to the caves could be long.

Best time to enjoy would be early morning to avoid large crowds. If you bring a camera bring a flash, however if it is a pro-camera you may be fine using long exposures. Staying close to the guide is helpful, since he/she will point out the natural features. Bring shoes suited for humid rocky terrain.

These are very big caves, with very big stalactites and stalagmites, walk to get inside is pleasant, cable to get down is cool. A lot of people on busy days, a lot of garbage on the food area...

You take the cableway which smoothly climbs the steep Mountain and then you will witness some beautiful caves!

If you're visiting Monterrey, these caves are a must see. Take a bus there from the central bus terminal in Monterrey (Saturdays and Sundays).
