Actun Loch Tunich Cave

 
 

Better known as the Black Hole drop , From the Blue Hole National Park, you will need to take a vigorous hike (45 minutes approximately) into the foothills of the Maya Mountains.  The edge of the Actun Loch Tunich sink hole sits over 300 feet above the basin below and 200 feet above the rainforest canopy that grows out from the sink hole basin.

Only fully trained caving guides can rig a system of rappelling ropes for your descend 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.  Once you’re at the bottom there is an area where you can have a refreshment, snacks or a meal, after this you take a return hike out of the foothills, personally I found the return more challenging, This cave is for extreme adventure seekers only and you must be relatively fit.
