Sister cave to El Castillo. Las Monedas is also open for a 45 minutes guided tour, which is in Spanish. The cave offer spectacular ancient cave art. Las Monedas has more stalactites and stalagmites than El Castillo, and very fine small size cave art. You...More

Smaller cave than El Castillo with less cave art, but really amazing and worth seeing. Guide was very helpful and gave some information in English.

Be prepared for slippery stairs and pathways. Although they said that it would be cold in the caves, I found it to be warm and humid. The guide was very informed about the various pictures found in the small galleries. The drawings were so clear...More

A good addition to touring El Castillo cave. A beautiful pale cave. The main reason to visit are the many calcium salt formations of different types but the charcoal horse and (smiling!) deer are the icing on the cake - simple, elegant and moving.

No! The walkways are wide, have railings to hold, the guide navigates you around any puddles or water. There are huge, expansive rooms to view. I remember only one ledge that was low and near my head, but I was able to... More

It's easy to visit El Castillo and Monedas in one day. Booked the two an hour apart, gives enough time for the tour and to walk between the two :)
