Adventure

Tepoztlán

A destination for adventurers
The Magical Town of Tepoztlán challenges you to bring out your adventurous spirit in a millenary cave, nestled in the hills that flank the town. The cavern is sumptuously decorated with pyro stalactites, rock formations that look like tiny straws, a product of the rivers of lava that ran inside thousands of years ago. Pre-Hispanic codices have also been found.

Go inside the cave and explore its natural labyrinth created by the passage of lava tubes through the years. With the help of a lamp, you’ll see walls that shine thanks to the high concentration of minerals and the floor made up of several rough layers.

The rugged terrain makes the tour last more than four hours. At the end, you will climb a 10-meter-high wall, to go out into daily life.

Recommendations for the trip
For this adventure, you must wear non-slip shoes, if you do not want to go out with your knees scraped or cut, because the rock formations are as sharp as a Swiss army knife. Terra 3 Expeditions is the only agency that organizes this activity, available practically all year round, except in the rainy season (August and September).
