“Amazing cave system and formations”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

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

“Surreal caves - if you are in the area you need to make time to visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

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 if you are older or just have bad knees like me. Several times while we were walking inside the mountain I had to pinch myself just to male sure I wasn't dreaming. Anyway I recommend you check this place out if you are in the area.

Worth the trip to see. The caverns are showing a little bit if wear from all of the visitors, but it is definitely worth the trip.

“Wow!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

It's one of the most beautiful sights I have seen. This is a must for every traveler to Monterrey, Mexico, true feat for eyes. There is an option to go up by cable car or for more adventurous kind, a walking trail (wouldn't recommend during summer). Be prepared to be awed by immense beauty of the caves.
