History


Description

Grutas Atepolihui (Cavern of Atepolihui), is advertised as a cave for the whole family. Only easy climbing, no trails, no light, this is definitely not a semi-wild cave, this is a real spelunking cave. There are regular cave trekking trips through three huge chambers of the cave.

Grutas de Atepolihui is one of the area's network of 32km caves which can be explored. The name of the cave comes from the Nauzontla language and means four heads. The cave has some enormous passages, many of which have not been explored.
