The Cave of Swallows, Aquismon

(4.6/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Observe the deep abyss of The Cave of Swallows: with a depth of 370 m (1,214 ft) from its highest side, it ranks as the world's largest known cave shaft. Extreme sport enthusiasts can attempt the adrenaline-inducing vertical climb down to the cave floor. Be warned, however, that once on the floor you'll likely encounter snakes and other unpleasant creepy-crawlies. Even if you aren't planning to climb down the cave, arriving at the opening requires a strenuous descent along hundreds of steps, making it unsuitable for the elderly or those with mobility issues.

  • incredible to be there is a privilege that I invite you to go and enjoy in silence and in a respectful manner since it is a site where millions of birds along with the community that has been able to respect them, it is sad that people do graffiti or foolishly shout along the Avisma. the fall it must be incredible and better contract directly there with the local people at better cost but if you bring money and dispose of two days one will and agendas and other do abseiling. Although if you want to book search facebook to those who can provide the service but ensures that the premises are not agencies, is a heavy staircase above all return but it is so gentle and so beautiful to be at the top of the hills and admire how perfeto equals the flight of birds, super fast ideal type six morning and afternoon between 5 and 6. just don't expect to find clean bathrooms

  • One wordless stays to admire the output of the swallows that leave to find food towards the coast of tamaulipas. What would recommend is that in season high vacation and holidays is arriving a couple of hours before dawn so that they reach a good place either one hour before in the low season. You have to down stone steps, which takes approximately half an hour. Leaving the first rays of the Sun Swallows emerge from the basement flying coiled near the walls of the cellar of more than 500 m deep, that if only it is worthwhile to admire it, from above is not reached to see the bottom, there are people holding it to one of the waist so that is can one look over the cliff which is worthwhile to get a better view It is very safe but will not let one get nervous. Swallows return to put the Sun going down into a tailspin making a buzz cut air, is different than when you go out in the morning, to my I like more output but worth watching the spectacle of the two forms. A flashlight is very useful. In the basement of the Huahuas also you can see this wonder of nature, it is almost the same just have to walk a little more by a slightly slippery road, the diameter of the entrance of the basement is more large and shallow but anyway is not the background, is also spectacular.
