Grutas del Carrizal (Grotto of Carrizal)

Candela

Just 10 minutes away from Candela's Historical Center, Las Grutas del Carrizal, an intricate route of caves located in the middle of Cerro del Aguila, awaits you.

The adventure starts from the road because you have to go by the highway to Nuevo Leon and then take a detour to travel a little more than 5 kilometers (3 miles) by a dirt road.

Once you have finished the winding road, you will have reached the entrance and you will probably be surprised that it is right below you, as you will have to descend through a hole that looks more like a burrow.

Showing off your skills and delving into the memory of your childhood games, you will surely lose your fear and manage to descend with the help of a rudimentary ladder. Everything seems crazy until you are inside because once there everything becomes a dream.

Inside, the size of the small passage extends to create an enormous gallery where an infinite number of stalactites and stalagmites show off their irregular shapes. These are perhaps the most accurate graphic representations of the expression “millions of years”.
