San Sebastián de las Grutas

San Sebastián de las Grutas
San Sebastián de las Grutas

The caves are famous for being the largest in all of America with their more than 1,000 meters deep and more than 60 kilometers long. One part is open to the public and comprises 5 chambers with heights from 20 to 70 meters with a length of 400 meters. To enter you can request the support of a guide.

The caves have more than 20 entrances scattered throughout the region. First explored in the 1970s, they were found to join a nearby cavern called Li Nita. This cavern system is unique in the world and therefore a team of cavers from UNAM conquered its darkness by descending more than 1,000 meters to come face to face with the bowels of the earth in 2015.

We find San Sebastián de las Grutas interesting because they have managed to exploit it in a way that integrates various activities for the traveler. For example, you can enter the underground river that gives life to the community and that in dry season has crystal clear waters.

The town offers a beautiful view full of vegetation in which if you look carefully you could come across a white-tailed deer, a green toucan or some common animals of the region.

People who travel to San Sebastián complement their experience supporting local tourism with the purchase of mezcal from the region and handicrafts. The most famous are the handicrafts carved in wood and the weaving of the palm that becomes the famous mats.
