#5 Explore the depths of the caves

Marble halls with candles. Elephants, bats and corals. Underground adventure. Now let's go.

Experience

Dare to descend to the underworld. The caves, underground passageways to a universe where there is total darkness. Tunnels that open in huge galleries, authentic rock rooms decorated by artistic combination of water and minerals. The murmur of the underground river and dripping stalactites formed thousands of years to become children praying, elephants or corals is heard. Mystical places where the spirit expands and where nature challenges us to improve. To overcome the fear of the unknown, into the dark, heights or enclosed places.

In the Sierra Norte the underworld is as fascinating as the lush greenery around you. Dare to explore the many caves that you can visit.

Delve into the tunnels, surprised with the strange formations of stalactites and

stalagmites and enjoy a day like no other. Cuetzalan System offers many possibilities:  Adventure, cwith its long descent through the huge gallery; the memory of the distillery buried in Los Corales;  Chivostoc cave or the devil; and Atepolihui Grotto, with its three classrooms and training elephant-shaped. North in Zapotitlán, you have the Karmidas Grutas, with its beautiful turquoise lagoon.Do not miss it!

If you are fond of caving and you like adventure, Puebla has for you a proposal without equal, with some of the longest cave systems in the country. Follow the footsteps of the early explorers who penetrated in these chasms or Yours is the pioneer and leave a trail for those coming behind.
