BLACK HOLE DROP

The “Mother of all Caves” … Actun Loch Tunich! After a 50-minute drive to the Blue Hole National Park, this expedition starts off with a vigorous hike into the foothills of the Maya Mountains. The edge of the Actun Loch Tunich sinkhole sits over 300 feet above the basin below and 200 feet above the rainforest canopy that grows out from the sinkhole basin. Fully trained caving guides then rig a system of rappelling ropes for your descent to the basin below. The first 10 feet provide the adrenaline, the next 200 feet provide an unforgettable experience and sights to behold, and the last 100 feet provide you down through the rainforest canopy. But before you start it all, you might just throw up! The sinkhole is not actually black, but you can’t see the bottom from where you start. Once you’re at the bottom, the question is… How do we get you out???
