The adventure…

The “Mother of all Caves”… Actun Loch Tunich!
Start with a vigorous hike up into the foothills of the Maya Mountains to the mouth of the cave. 
The edge of the Actun Loch Tunich sinkhole sits over 300 feet above the basin below, 200 feet above the rain forest canopy that grows out from the sinkhole basin.
Our fully trained caving guides rig a system of rappelling ropes for your descent to the basin below. The first 10 feet provides the adrenaline, the next 200 feet provides an unforgettable experience and sights to behold, the last 100 feet takes you down through the rain forest canopy. The sinkhole is not actually black, but you can’t see the bottom from where you start.
Once you’re at the bottom you rest with a delicious picnic lunch.
The next question is… how do we get you out???
Climb of course!
After a return hike including some rock climbing, ladder climbing, and a lot of sweating, it’s just a short ride back to the lodge for a dip in the pool with a well deserved cold drink while you share the tale of your
unforgettable adventure!

“My husband and I did both the Black Hole Drop and the Waterfall Cave, and each were classified as one of our top 5 lifetime experiences – along with skydiving.
They were that amazing.”
