The Cave of Swallows, Aquismon

4.5
#3 of 12 in Nature in San Luis Potosi
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. With our world travel planner, Aquismon attractions like The Cave of Swallows can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • You must climb two kilometers of stairs, it is something definitely tired I do not recommend it for older people or people who have knee, but uploading problems you are a beautiful spectacle of birds that you can not miss

  • Camping you stay only, practically nobody stays down and remains uninhabited, there is no place to buy water for example, carries everything you'll need and preferably some have either gas or alcohol because it drizzle many times at night and not you have where you make a campfire if you want to heat up some food.

  • It is pretty cool that coexist with nature, but to see the real spectacle you have to arm yourself with patience as the swallows begin to arrive when darkens, we arrived approx. 6:00 pm and we hope more than 1:15 and barely saw a 100 swallows. It is a challenge when going out, because you have to climb many steps.
