“One of the most beautiful show caves in the world!”
The Caverns of Sonora is recognized as the most beautiful cave in Texas and one of the most beautiful show caves in the world. The Caverns of Sonora is located on Interstate 10, about half-way between Big Bend National Park and San Antonio Texas. We are located 15 miles southwest of Sonora, Texas and the Caverns is a great place for people of all ages to experience the wonders of nature. Along with guided tours of this beautiful cave; there are many other activities to enjoy such as gemstone panning, exploring the nature trail, enjoying a Group Tour, Specialty Tour, or one of our many Workshops, camping out in an RV or tent, or just relaxing and enjoying the outdoors.
This place is awesome!! D, our guide, was fun and knowledgeable. One of the BEST stops we made over the course of our trip. Friendly people, great gift shop, reasonable price and one of THE PRETTIEST caves I've seen
Its a good stop to break up the long drive to Grand Canyon. The caves are all pretty small. They dont give you hardhats and one guy knocked his head pretty good.
We arrived after the last tour left, make sure to get there before 3pm!
We stopped here last month and so well worth the stop ,its absolutely phenomenal. Caverns of Sonora is truly a must on the list !
Even the gift is amazing. It really is all crystal. EVERYWHERE. They sell crystals of all sizes too. The tours is about an hour and 45 minutes. Make sure you get there before 4:30 to go on a tour.
This is an awesome cave. Worth going to over some bigger ones, like Carlsbad.
Really wanted to make it here on our trip but for some reason the driving time was way off and ended up having to stop before we could reach this point. People in the area said it was really neat!
The manager is completely disorganized and a jerk. If you're not from the town or he knows your relative or you're a good-looking woman he's a complete jerk to you. I'm sure the caves are nice but I never got to see them and I wouldn't recommend going there.
Beautiful living caves and quite extensive. So glad we stopped. Even learned some geology. We had six in our group so easy to interact with guide. Said max is 12. Not too difficult but it’s likely not doable unless comfortable hiking a few miles up and down hills and stairs. Loved the gift shop. So much better than the ones along the highway.
Great place to visit! This was our first stop in our trip. We made sure we arrived early in the morning and waited for the first guided tour. Our guide was amazing and was giving us interesting facts during the tour. Inside of the cave is humid, it's how the cave was formed. There is a small gift shop you can buy souvenirs from.
