I don't have much words to describe the caves. It's an amazing place. You can look a beautiful formations of stalagmites and stalactites. You can see the lion head, the cross, the Guadalupe Virgin, etc. The temperature inside is great. It's not difficult to walk. The organization is great. You can go at the top in gondola or walking. Both... More

Great caves with very interesting formations of stalactites and stalagmites. Beautiful mountains and surroundings. If you love nature, it´s a must...and if you don´t care much about nature, it´s a must, you will love them.

A very interesting place. I remember that my parents took me when I was a child, then I was in my teens and now I just take my son there. With the passing of the years the place has been improving, has improved facilities. The trip includes riding a cable car that is an experience that children love.

One of my childhood memories was recovered and it was even greater while watching the kids be amazed by the geological results of nature passing years inside this great cave, finding figures created by stone, as well as walking through the maze-kind of stairs and self made corridors. Great place to experience nature, use a nice well cared cableway car... More

It is a must when visiting Monterrey, although it's 40-50 min away from the city. Had to take a driver and asked him to wait for me for the hour the tour took. It's a beautiful piece of art made by nature. Visitors need to be able to climb stairs since it's all there is.

The caves where spectacular and the mountains were as impressive as the caves, if not more. My advice is to visit this location on a cloudy day where you get to see the clouds clustering around the mountain tops. The view is surreal. A word of caution to families: avoid entering the caves in case of accompanying babies, as there... More
