The Cave of Swallows, Aquismon
(4.6/5 based on 240+ 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.

  • A fascinating place, have to arrive early, before dawn that if! but it is worth 100%, people there are very nice, friendly and quiet. And this spectacle of nature has no comparison! I give my opinion as a biologist "ornitologo" and tourists.

  • Unique in a chasm of almost 500 meters deep which houses millions of birds (parakeets and bencejos). The best times to admire is before 7 am and after 6 am. The municipal seat of Aquismón, are 10 km paved and winding at the entrance of the basement. of where you park the car, more than 200 steps should lower to reach the edge of the basement. Take this into account for access of elderly people or with any limiting physics.

  • You should call the cellar stairs, jaaa. It is very nice. An adventure down about 600 stairs heading to one of the abysses more profound in the world. To get listeners to the parrots and swallows inhabiting the giant fossa. The path of descent and ascent is nice, because you're watching crafts and you can eat regional food and stroll in swings that you launch into the void. Only should be prepared and in shape, to make a great physical effort, above all, to climb back.
