These are really just stalactites, stalagmites and a lot of rock formations but they were able to make them interesting by setting up various showcase spots. Make sure you bring a good camera that can capture low light situations to get nice pictures. I came...More

Took an hour Uber to get there only to find the cable car was broken. We paid 50 pesos to climb the path to the top. This is not a light trail and I don’t recommend it if you are not used to hiking in...More

A must in your visit to Monterrey, I'll be honest though, it's a one time trip. And while you're there, go to the Zoo. It's pretty neat and just next the Garcia entrance. Just a couple of minutes outside of Monterrey. Make sure to take...More

Excellent place to visit when in Monterrey. Not too far from the city. The caves are in the high part of a mountain, so you have to take a cableway with amazing view to get to the entrance. Brace for a lot of stairs.

At only a few minutes drive from Monterrey we visited this place. Caves were amazing! Stalactites and stalagmites all around with good lightning along the way.

A classic sight-seeing in the state of Nuevo León. Amazing formations in the caves where you see stalactites and stalagmites created and preserved over thousands of years.

We didn't have any concern for our safety at the Grutas. The Uber ride there went perfectly and the staff and facilities were excellent at the Grutas. It is worth seeing - they are magnificent!
