It’s not too late to see the bats take to flight at night, leaving the amazing natural entrance at the Carlsbad Caverns National Park. Each evening from May to October, nearly 400,000 Brazilian (aka Mexican) free-tail bats exit Carlsbad Cavern in search of a smorgasbord of insects for dinner. It’s amazing to see!

Many of our guests stay with us here at the Heritage Inn and then visit Carlsbad Caverns. They also visit the Guadalupe Mountains National Park, the UFO Museum in Roswell, and White Sands National Monument. More detailed posts on those attractions in the near future. The Heritage Inn is a “unique stay along the way.”
