Description 

This is the huge cave accessed at Rancho Procopio just 15 minutes from Taxco, Guerrero, MX. Routes are almost all overhanging and long. Huge tufas and 3D climbing.

Getting There 

From Taxco drive to Grutas de Cacahuamilpa and turn left into Sr. Procopio's Rancho (unmarked) and park safely here. The trail is maintained by his family and a slight fee is charged; well worth it. You can also rent burros to carry your gear!
