Natural Bridge Caverns, San Antonio

4.5
#2 of 231 in Nature in Texas
A natural limestone bridge leads into caves at Natural Bridge Caverns. The cavity houses the largest commercial caves in the United States--viewed as a living cave system because of the active growth of formations. Prior to opening to the public, the cave revealed evidence of ancient human remains dating back to 5,000 BCE. The caverns are part of a drive-through safari park, Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch.

  • Our family of 5 had a nice time here. We started with the adventure course when it opened at 10:00 because the high temp for the day was almost 100 deg. We all enjoyed the zip lines and the adventure ...  more »
  • As many times as i've been to San Antonio, I did not know about these caves. They are right at the city limits, and are a great way to spend some time outside the riverwalk. The tour is about 1.5 hour...  more »

  • Great place to see the caverns. Very unique in the nation especially this one in San Antonio. Our guide was amazing in explaining and guiding us through the tour to see all the structure and experience the caves. It was a nice walk and a good exercise would go back again. It was $31 when you buy online and do both. Which was very well worth it!
  • We did our first tour with Morgan who was absolutely amazing. She was very knowledgeable, and personable. The cavern was warm and lit dimly. My 10 year old enjoyed taking pics and learning more about Texas. Just remember to eat n use the restroom before you go down there.
  • I went to this place as a kid over 30 years ago and it still does not disappoint. Out of the 4 caves we have toured in Texas so far, this one has the best formations inside. Very easy to traverse paths throughout the cave make for a family friendly tour. We just recently took both of our sons age 3 and 11 , both of them loved it. The rope course and zip lines were fun as well. Overall the family had an awesome day here.
  • Great fun for the little ones and adults as well. The zip line is a must. The group in front of us was a 3 generation party. Daughter, mother and Grandmother who was 63 (her birthday). She hit that zip line like a boss! Staff is super helpful and friendly. Most of all, the caverns are a once in a lifetime moment! A must for tourists. It was great!
  • This place is naturally beautiful. the experience was educational, beautiful and importantly a good exercise. Yes, I said exercise because you have to do good amount of walking in a highly humid environment underground in a tour which is about 45 mins to 1 hour. Carry water bottle with you (big one). Parking is free. they have good area outside as well (no tickets required for just sitting outside). Outside the Caverns there is good couple of activities to choose from. There are laws (seriously) that protect the Caverns - so, don't touch anything in the caves until told. Don't forget to taste the natural water.
