Breathtaking views of natural cavern; the cable car ride to entrance is also full of nice views; the walk inside the cave is very entertaining with lots of areas that are amazing to see.

These caves are the perfect attraction if you love nature, long walks and mountains. Ideal for a family trip, not really far away from town (a bit less than an hour).

Take the cable car or hike to get up there. They are impressive and the tour is very well guided and explained

The Grutas de Garcia are something visitors to the Monterrey area should make an effort to get out and visit. Not only does the teleferico offer visitors stunning mountain vistas, but as soon as you enter the caves themselves, you're in for an unbelievable treat....More

The grutas are not the biggest you'll ever see but they are still impressive. The tour guides give something really good information. Sometimes the lighting feels cheap and ruins the naturalness of the tour but overall it's a nice surprise close to the city. The...More
