Situated in the middle of Sierra Madre del Sur, in the Mexican state of Guerrero, the Grutas de Cacahuamilpa National Park is home to the world’s largest and deepest cave systems.
The Chontalcoatlán and San Jeronimo Rivers still flow through the deep depths of the caves, which vary anywhere from 20 – 80-meters high and 40-meters wide.
Whether you’re taking a walking tour or wanting to propel or climb through the caves, Grutas de Cacahuamilpa National Park is a unique national park worth exploring!
- Rock climbing can be done in the park thanks to the steep, jagged cliffs on the outside of the caves. With over 45 different climbing routes, you’ll find something for every type of skill level.
- The Limontitle Botanical Gardens should be visited in late spring to early summer, where the flowers and trees are mostly in bloom. Take a guided tour of the garden to see the native plants that grow in the property.
- Grutas de Carlos Pacheco is a separate cave located south of the main caves of Grutas de Cacahuamilpa. The stalagmites and stalactites look as if they are suspended in mid-air, which is something that is usually not seen in rock formations.
