Discovered in 1843, the Garcia Caves are the second-largest cave system in the world. After the Garcia Caves, you will be given the opportunity to explore the Xempal Zoo. The Xempal Zoo, complete with lake, mini-farm, and play area, houses plenty of animals including giraffes, zebras, and camels. The Xempal Zoo also offers pony, donkey, and llama rides.

It is inevitable to go to the mountains in Monterrey, a town characterized by mountains. A very beautiful view was waiting. The ropeway waited for a system trouble on the day, but if it goes smoothly, it will climb 1000 meters in 4 minutes. There were plenty of places to see inside the cave, and the two-kilometer journey was very quick. After that, the museum dropped in and returned to the starting point. It would be great if there was something else besides the cave ... I hope that only two more people can apply and I need to pay for two people alone.
