  1. Demi Tucker

    Exploring Grutas Tolantongo with a local guide (especially Arturo) was a dream! As a solo traveler, I was amazed at how prepared Arturo was from towels, flashlights, first aid kit, everything! Felt super safe throughout the trip. The caves were stunning and the experience was hassle-free thanks to Arturo! Truly appreciated the extra care ensuring I was comfortable and safe. A must-do for solo adventurers who want to meet people.
