The Grutas de Tolantongo are located in Tolantongo in the deep Valle del Mezquital. Coming from Ixmiquilpan the paved highway ends and a gravel road leads down into the valley in numerous U turns.
Tolantongo is not a village, but a hotel, a campground, a hot spring and the show cave. The unique feature of this cave is again a hot spring inside the cave. The hot water mixes with the cold water of another spring, then flows into rimstone pools, where the visitor may take a bath.
At the moment the cave is closed because of a roof collapse. It will probably reopen in December 2004.
