“Wow!!!”
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.

“Amazing and worth the drive from the city”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

The place is great and be prepared to walk! You have two options to get inside of the cave, either via cable car which is about a 2 minute ride or you can walk along the very twisty path which would take about 20 mins at a brisk pace. Inside of the cave the temperature is perfect, about 70-75 degrees. Plenty of things to see inside and the guide does an excellent job of pointing them out. There are A LOT of stairs as well so if you have an issue with that, then this might not be for you. The tour inside is about 45 mins. At the bottom of the mountain there are vendors selling various items and food available for purchase as well. There is also a playground for children.

The view was spectacular! The new cable car was a delight to ride. It was great standing in this new cable car and enjoying the beautiful view on the way up. The Caves were awsome. Mother natures work of art!

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

I went in 2006 when I first came to Mexico. It was recommended to me by the locals. You can go on a tour and there are some spectacular view inside the caves.
