2 Days

Jan - May


All levels


* Enjoy an amazing caving adventure in the Grutas de Cacahuamilpa National Park.

* Travel along the amazing Chontalcoatlan underground river.

* Sleep under the famous Skylight.

* Open to people of all levels.


The only thing better than spending a full day exploring the Grutas de Cacahuamilpa National Park along the underground Chontalcoatlan River is spending 2 days exploring it! And, on this trip, that is exactly what you’ll be able to do.

Located in the Mexican state of Guerrero, the Grutas de Cacahuamilpa are absolutely breathtaking. As enormous as they are gorgeous, you will get to thoroughly explore the cave over the course of this trip’s two days. We will begin the trip by entering the cave, and we will proceed deeper and deeper along the Chontalcoatlan River, where you will pass several amazing rock formations. Afterwards, at the end of the first day, we will sleep in the middle of the river bed, where you will get to see the following morning’s first rays of light through the famous Skylight. After that we will continue our journey through the cave until we exit and go to the Grutas de Cacahuamilpa market, where you can enjoy a delicious meal.

This is not a difficult trip. As a result, people of all levels can enjoy it. In fact, kids as young as 13 years old can participate. Thus making this a great adventure for the whole family.

If you would like to explore a giant, beautiful cave in Mexico for 2 days, then this is your chance. All you have to do is send a request. We look forward to guiding you.

We also offer a full-day, easy hiking trip along the lovely Magdalena River, near Mexico City.

What people are saying about E-S Latam Adventure Guides



We wish we could have Simon as our guide on every trek we do. His mountaineering experience and extensive knowledge of the area was impressive and definitely enhanced the trek for us. On top of this, we got along great with Simon and appreciate his easy going personality and sense of humor. We will definitely request Simon as our guide for the next hike we do from El Chalten!



Thoroughly recommended. Daniel is an excellent guide and we had a great day out.



This was a fantastic mountaineering trip to Ecuador. The altitude was a bit of a challenge, but Ramiro did a great job with the acclimatization schedule leading up to the taller mountains. Overall, this was a challenging experience given the altitude of the climbs as well as the back-to-back climbing of four mountains. I would highly recommend this excursion for anyone who wants to experience a fantastic country/culture as well as someone who wants to gain some nice experience mountaineering!



Fredy Tipan is like a superhero of the outdoor world. He knows absolutely everyone, has climbed and guided in the most epic of locations all around the world, knows the mountains like old friends, and really loves what he does and who he does it for. Our trip was completely messed up after an issue with our airline tickets. We weren't going to be able to leave until a week after our planned departure which jeopardized our entire trek with Fredy. We didn't expect him to take any sort of responsibility in replanning as it was our mistake that caused the airline issue but he absolutely did. Within days he rearranged the entire trek so that we would be able to summit all our desired peaks without cutting the days down and without changing the cost. He is a class act and an incredible guide and I'd say my husband and I both consider him a friend as well. We will definitely be booking another trip with Fredy Tipan and recommend him to anyone looking for the real deal in outdoor Guides. Thank you, Fredy!


Amazing short but exciting climb to a summit with outstanding views. Perfect acclimatization peak for the bigger Ecuadorian volcanoes, with a cozy hut and a nice approach walk. Fredy was fantastic, thank you so much for this unforgettable experience!
