Previously a small town Garcia is growing. The site itself is a nice calm area with scenic surroundings. There are refreshments available, shady spots and a gift shop. Make sure to go to the ticket booth to purchase your pass to ride the cable car up to the caves on the mountainside. It is a steep ride to quite an... More

This place has been renovated from the one I used to know, now it is more modern, it is cleaner and still cold when you walk into those wonderful caves, recommended to go and take the funicular when you go up but descend by the trails, it is fun and you can enjoy the wonderful views of the mountains around...

Amazing cave, with the right artificial light and comfortable steps. Thanks to the guide you will know a lot about the cave. A must have if u are in Monterrey, there are tour operators that can take you there in 40 minutes plus a tour of Garcia, a town nearby.

This is about a 30 Minuit ride from Santa Caterina where I am staying. The cable car ride alone to the cave entrance is worth the ride. Wonderful views of the Serra Madre's. The cave takes about one hour to walk through and is overwhelming both in scope and size. So much to see. Be prepared for a lot of... More

Stunning set of caves with excellent access. Reached via cable car half way up mountain face. Food and drink available at car park. Reports say it gets very busy at weekends.

Went to Grutas de Garcia with a friend, we were lucky to go during school holidays and there were a lot of people. We waited 40 minutes for our turn to get into the cave. While waiting we went to the mini museum and glance through the history. Finally our turn to go up there, Wao.... there's a lot of... More

Great place to see with incredible formations and several different rooms/caverns. My only complaint is all the electricity inside the caves, I do not prefer locations set up for tourists. That said the grutas are very impressive

This place is in the outskirts of town but my GPS was able to find it as a natural park attraction. This place has amazing caves and it takes several hours to see all the wonders. The caves are very well kept and the man made walkways that were built around the caves make it easy to get around even... More
