Spectacular, incredible, a rush…these are the adjectives used to describe your next adventure! The “Mother of all Caves” .. Actun Loch Tunich. This expedition starts off with a vigorous hike into the foothills of the Maya Mountains. The edge of the Actun Loch Tunich sink hole sits over 300 feet above the basin below, 200 feet above the rainforest canopy that grows out from the sink hole basin. Our fully trained caving guides then rig a system of rappelling ropes for your decent 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 rainforest canopy. The sink hole is not actually black, but you can't see the bottom from where you start. A return hike out of the foothills gets you back to the stating point. This expedition is not for the faint of heart and all participants must be relatively fit.
