Bring your head lamp with elastic to go around hard hat provided. Bring 2 bottles of water, it's hot in the summer. Spray mosquito replant on the minute you get out of the car. Now you are set to have a great adventure!

Everything that has been said is true. You will get soiled, muddy, sweaty but happy. What an experience. The guide (cannot go into the cave without one-you will get lost) gives you a helmet with a light, knee pads, and gloves. You NEED to wear the helmet or you will come out without a head. Really. Even if you don't... More

The caves were overall a great experience, since unusual and far off the "normal" tourist attractions. Best is to get there by rental car (GPS for Google Maps: "20 43.808, -89 28.464") First we weren't sure if it is the right spot, since there were only like three elderly men sitting. After asking they offered to show the caves for... More

We drove to Tecoh and got a bit lost - there are major roadworks on highway 184 and we missed the turn to Tecoh so approached the caves from the south. There was no one there so we drove into town to find a guide. We were told the guide was probably in the caves so went back and settled... More

This will be an adventure that you will be talking about for years! A guide is required to enter these caves and one is on site. The guide will provide you with helmets and flashlights. You will be walking, bending, crawling and sometimes even slithering through this cave system with a treasure “at the end of the tunnel” . .a... More

Flashlights are an absolute necessity (and are provided by the Guide on site). You MUST follow the Guide step by step as there are rock overhangs and sharp steep crevices (with no railings) in the middle of the dark! Be prepared to crouch, lean, wade in water up to your armpits, crawl, slither on your stomach, and finally swim in... More

This is worth a special trip to Tecoh with the kids (and the young-at-heart), especially if you combine it with nearby Mayapan. It's 60 pesos per adult for entry, with our 7-year old getting in for free. Helmets and flashlights (torches) are provided, and a guide is obligatory (we tipped him 50 pesos at the end, and it was for... More

It is quite hard to find as there are no signs at all. It is lcated 1 mile south of the town Tecoh. Entrance i just a small cabin! Entry price is 60 pesos per person (including the guide which you definetly will need!) The cave starts very simple but very beautiful. After about 15 minutes you will get to... More

There are some very tight places in this cave, so much so that I had to crawl many times. We read the other reviews left before we went. I'm in good enough physical shape to do most anything, but I was underprepared, wearing shorts, to crawl through a cave. At 6'2" 280, it was absolutely necessary and fairly exhausting by... More

I'm not a spelunker: my cave experience is limited. But this live limestone cave system is fascinating to anybody with an interest in nature. The caves corkscrew downward like a shallow helix or spiral - it feels like at least two full loops. Contains at least one sample of all the more intriguing limestone formations (soda straws, flowstone, curtains, scrambled... More
