Description
Scratch “Adrenaline Pumping” off your bucket list! Hike up into the foothills of the Maya Mountains to the edge of the Actun Loch Tunich- a GINORMOUS natural sink-hole that drops 300ft into the rainforest floor below. Trained guides have rigged a system of 1st class rappelling ropes into the depths- to the rainforest basin floor below. Your adrenaline will kick in – leaving you stunned one second and breathless the next, by the breathtaking views that surround you as you repel down. Reaching the bottom- in a Superman type landing- relax for a lunch served on a white tablecloth covered stone; a well-deserved feast! The rainforest exploration continues as you rock climb and hike your way out of the sinkhole and back down to the starting point of this phenomenal adventure.  This isn’t called the “Mother of all Caves” for no reason.
