We are vacationing in Monterrey and this was one of the things on my plan. Booked a tour with ‘toursionterrey’. $800 pesos per person and they gave me a $200’pesos discount as I booked multiple tours. Pick up was at 10.30 and we reached this place around 12 noon. Tickets to the caves was part of the tour. There are two ways to go to the top of the mountain - through a cable car or hiking. We preferred the cable car. Takes u up in about 2 mins. Entrance to the cave is filled with food vendors. I found it strange. The tour guide (employee by the cave management) takes a batch of about 60 people (1 cable car load) through a 2 km tour if the caves explaining stuff in Spanish. Our tour guide knew a little English and she translated it for us nicely. It is just like any other cave system. (Except in size). At one place they have a Christian shrine inside. Quite a walk inside. Worth it.

We had a tour guide bring us to this location. The guide we had inside the caverns was Edgar who was really awesome. He was very knowledgeable and his humor was greatly appreciated.

A tour for the decades. And I say this because I have had the opportunity to visit since I was 8 now 38 and the only thing that has changed is the way up to the cave. Although the new maybe safer cable car is more modern I did have a preference for the old train going up the mountain. Inside its gorgeous work of art by Nature the guides learned a pattern of figures and speach and repeat it tour by tour. Could definetly use a change either by season or trends. Maybe is asking to much since a stalagmite and stalactites takes centuries to change. So as to summarize if it's your first time it's a nice thing to see. But if you seen it once years ago it is still the same. Regardless I still go am a bit nostalgic since my parents brought me as a kid.

This was as nice a cave as Carlsbad, NM. It helps if you know Spanish because I didn't know any. I was stuck in Monterey and this is one of two places I visited. You begin on a cable car ride. You look up and see this isn't you typical ride, it's high, all the way to the top of the mountain. Once you get going you think, wow this is Mexico, I hope they do maintenance on this. The ride was nice and we made it. You come to a steel door on the side of the mountain. The tour guide opens it and inside is a huge and took a couple of hours to complete. Although I didn't understand a thing they said, I knew about the minerals and the shells. I was told this is a place a painter named Garcia use to come to. I don't know if that's true or not. I would do this again if I felt safe going back to Monterey/Mexico.
