“experience a stunning limestone cave”

Experience a stunning limestone cave in Southeastern Arizona that boasts world-class features. This “live” cave, discovered in 1974, is host to a wide variety of unique minerals and formations. Water percolates from the surface and calcite formations continue to grow, including stalactites dripping down like icicles and giant stalagmites reaching up from the ground. Tour guides will unveil this fascinating underground landscape during a memorable 1½ hour tour.The Discovery Center features museums exhibits, a large gift shop, regional displays, theater, and educational information about the caverns and the surrounding landscape. There are also campgrounds, hiking trails, lockers, shaded picnic areas, a deli, an amphitheater, and a hummingbird garden.

Fabulous active caves. Leave your sweater in the car as caves are warm and humid.

Unbelievable! You can look at pictures all you want...there’s nothing like being there. You can’t take in purses, cell phones etc. they do have lockers that need 4 quarters. If you wear a coat and get too warm they ask you to roll it before tying to your waist to prevent causes lint to get in the air and attach to the walls. Our guide Wilson was wonderful with a dead pan delivery that was funny as well as informative.
