To get to those caves you can either walk or take a cable car - I'd rather take the latter, particularly when with kids. Caves definitely worth seeing and taking pictures. Some snacks available after return (churros!) Generally speaking, when in Monterrey - worth going.

I've visited the caves several times before, this time I want to show them to my kids and girlfriend, as usual the caves are very impressive for first timers; whole experience of cable car, caves, lights effects worth the trip which is very close to Monterrey.

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.
