On several occasions in Vuela Viajes we have told you about the many interesting destinations that Mexico has, a country that is an inexhaustible source of spectacular places. Today I would like to write about the Tolantongo caves , which are in the municipality of Cardonal, in the center of the country and belonging to the state of Hidalgo. A truly beautiful natural place that is worth visiting.

The great tourist attraction in this entire area are these caves, an incredible paradise that has been created by ecological formations, a totally natural place, which makes it much more beautiful. These caves are in an almost desert area, which makes them even more spectacular, in addition to the fact that they form rivers of thermal waters that are wonderful.

Natural wonder

The beauty of the Tolantongo caves is beyond doubt, forming a large pool on the outside that arose naturally and makes the waters gush from the deepest rock formations. In addition, you can bathe in them, and every day there are many tourists who go there to purify their bodies and relax for a few hours, regardless of whether the weather is good or not since they are warm.


In the area of ​​the caves there is a camp, so it is the ideal place to spend at least one night and be able to discover all its beauty in peace. In addition, various activities are organized every day, such as hiking or jumping on a zip line . It also has a restaurant in a privileged location that shows the best of Tolantongo’s landscape, offering the best dishes of local gastronomy.

How to get

In order to get to the Tolantongo caves, you must follow the route that connects Mexico with Pachuca, which will take you from Mexico City to the caves in about four hours. Desle Ixmiquilpan buses leave every day, although the most comfortable thing is to go by car. There is a parking area, with tickets to have it parked and safe throughout your stay in the caves.
