Grutas de Cacahuamilpa and Taxco

Las Grutas and Taxco are both easy day trips from Cuernavaca even though they are in the state of Guerrero. You could do them both with a car or a tour if you start early. I would not try Las Grutas via bus. Hard to tell what you'll find in Taxco and you might easily spend a day there.

The Grutas de Cacahuamilpa National Park in Guerrero, Mexico, is best known for the Grutas de Cacahuamilpa Caverns, which are one of the largest cave systems in the world. It is also home to the Grutas of Carlos Pacheco, a smaller system, as well as two subterranean rivers which have carved out tunnels in the rock. The park has extreme sports attractions such as rappelling, and rock climbing in Limontitla Canyon. as well as the two underground rivers to explore. It also has a small botanical garden, a pool and places to camp.

Hi, I ll give some tips of my last trip to Cuernavaca if you want to go to las grutas the easiest way is taking the Pullman de Morelos is on ave. Morelos a few blocks away from el centro de cuernavaca ,they only go during the weekend sat and Sunday at 9:25 and 11:00 be aware of the times the charge 44 pesos and the entrance is 65 pesos,but it's worth it they have a tour every hour,you can get in by yourself but is not the same the guy explains everything and uses his flashlight if you are in cuernavca during the week like myself this is what I did ,I took the Pullman to coatlan del rio( same bus station ave. Morelos) 22 pesos like 1:40 minutes once I got there I took a taxy cab to las grutas ( taxy drivers know how to get there) 70 or 80 pesos, like 25 minutes I hope you enjoy it
