The caverns are indeed beautiful and impressive. They’re worth a trip. It’s around 2.5 km of walking including two somewhat steep ascents on steps carved from rock. Our research told us to expect that, as a 75 year old I was able to do it, but not easily. Unexpected we’re: The lack of adequate handrails for most of walk, which las on a damp walkway. A group of 50+, vs 20 advertised, with the guide proceeding with his narrative while half the group was too far away to hear. Finally, although the entry was accompanied by a guide, the return was not. So people were making their way on slippery walkway with very little light. I’m not saying one shouldn’t go, but that advance awareness is helpful in deciding.

This is a must see and do! Despite not being a fan of tours, or being in large groups, the cave system is spectacular! The tour guide was only in Spanish, and entry is only on the hour (at least on the weekends)

We had a tour of this UNESCO SITE. A wonderful, beautiful experience, with stalagmites and stalactites. We will probably never see anything like this again.

I took a tour of the grutas (caverns) and loved it! The place is huge and has lots of interesting stories. Make sure to bring non-slip shoes and fast dry clothing as it is humid down there and very slippery. The guide was fun and had great stories. There was lots of walking but there are bathrooms at a halfway point.

Fantastic cave, and I've seen hundreds, both wild and commercial. The guide on 1/25 from 5-615 p.m. would do better as a farm hand rustling cattle. He clearly hated his job and tourists. There were only ten people in our group, one of them on a cane, but he continually raced ahead and shut out the lights, leaving us unable to take pictures. Three times he suggested we turn back and end the tour early. He gave almost zero information on the history or geology of the cave. I could give several more examples of his sneering, condescending demeanor with paying customers but I'm getting mad just recalling him. He did not wear any i.d. Additionally, the sales people there are ridiculous! I get having to make a living, but we were almost constantly surrounded by multiple vendors shoving beads, baskets, and food samples,in our faces. I felt like a tuna in a shark pool! They were out of control! If they'd just stay in their booths and call to us, I might consider checking out their products. Instead, I just wanted to push them off of me! Cave:10+++ Staff: 2

The caves are amazing and a must see! Getting there from Taxco was however a bit of a pain. I've read about colectivos going there, but non to be found on the day either on the way or back. Eventually found that you can only get a bus from Estrella de Blanco on the main road of Taxco, $42 one way. Bus leaves at 11:25am, hourly I think. They drop you on the main road and it is then a short walk to the caves. Cave tours happen every hour, try and time it right. After the tour, I made the mistake to ask for a colectivo again. The taxi driver said he would take me to taxco for $30, but ended up dropping me at the main road, less than a km away. Most expensive taxi in Mexico - beware! You then catch the same bus back to taxco.

This was a last minute trip and I have to say...WOW! The cave is huge! The walk is about 2hr and about 4 miles 2 in and 2 out, we bought the whole experience including the underground cave tour, if you take that tour make sure you know how to swim (90% recommended as the there are some high spots where you either climb or take the small river). Make sure to take non-slip shoes as the rocks as pretty slippery and if you will get in the water i would suggest that your phone be water resistent so that you can record your tour and at the end of the underground cave you get jump into the river about 10-15 feet off but IT IS FREEZING COLD!

Mexico has many natural attractions that leave visitors fascinated. Among these attractions are the Cacahuamilpa Caves. These caves form the most famous cavern in Mexico, so much so that it is visited by tourists and by specialists who will study its fascinating geological and topographic structure.
It is a wonderful experience that you will not regret.
