Garcia Caves
At the Garcia Caves, you can experience the wonders of the millenary rock formations hidden inside Monk's Hill. A tramway takes you up to the caves, and the interior is well illuminate with electric lights.

Chipinque Park
This beautiful national park is located in the Sierra Madre Oriental and offers gorgeous scenery.
