AAA Editor Notes

Nombre de Dios Caverns (Grutas de Nombre de Dios) are in the northeastern part of the city, about a 20-minute drive from downtown Chihuahua via Calzada H. Colegio Militar, then along dirt roads following the blue-and-white signs. Stalactite and stalagmite formations in these small caves are said to resemble Don Quixote, a dinosaur head and the Leaning Tower of Pisa, among other things. Tours with English-speaking guides are available. The path through the caverns is fairly dark and has some tight passages and a couple of steep inclines; the tour is not recommended for those prone to claustrophobia. Food is available.
50 pesos (about $2.70 U.S.); 25 pesos (ages 5-10).
Hours: Tues.-Fri. 9-3, Sat.-Sun. and Mexican holidays 10-4. Allow 1 hour, 30 minutes minimum.
