"Caverns of Sonora" Sonora by darthmilmo
Sonora Travel Guide: 40 reviews and 87 photos
This page is dedicated to the Caverns of Sonora, not the actual town itself.
One of the top 4 caverns in the United States, the cavern is located near the town of Sonora, a few miles from I-10 (between Ft Stockton and San Antonio). There are 3 types of tours. The first two don't require prior appointments. The first tour (cost $14) lasts 1hr 15min The second tour (cost $20) lasts 1hr 45min. The second tour covers most, if not all, of what the first tours covers. The third type of tours, the wild tours, take up to 4 hours (cost $75-125) and require a couple of weeks advance notice.
Personally, the second tour is the best for the price/time. You get to see most of the amazing attractions and you don't have to cough up the big bucks. Some of the attractions include the crystal room, the ice room, the coral/popcorn formations, the butterfly, the big bacon, the snake pit, the only natural made crystal-butterfly in the world, and the ice room.
Feel free to take a tour into the cavern and follow along the paths I took in the 'Must Do section.' Before starting the tour though, make sure you read the three warnings. Enjoy!
If you want additional information, try calling the staff of the Caverns of Sonora at (915) 387-3105 or visit their webpage at http://www.cavernsofsonora.com.

I don't know if I was hungry by now or what, but after a while it looked like popcorn was coming out of the cavern... more travel advice
Is it a vase or a couple kissing? If anything, this tour is about opening your mind and expanding your imagination. So... more travel advice
