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.

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.

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.
