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.

  • amazing hidden place if you go by car have to ask because there is almost no signs. It's cost is usper cheap charge 45 pesos per person. you need great condition you are many steps and the problem is not to lower them if not to upload them but worth the challenge. down you will find person selling souvenirs and once you get to the basement. There are two places to contemplate it and a viewpoint that the times that have gone always is closed. but on the first point, you have a very good view but if you give back and still have a view even much better. There are people you securing to an anchor in the colon so that you approach the shore and contemplate the view. charge you anything you like have no fee. If you want to see swallows you have you get since they leave at dawn and coincidentally is at 6 o'clock in the morning or before and in my taste I les recommend more implementation osease at 6 o'clock which is when they start to return and I like more the climate at that time. my recommendation to go in April or mayo before the rainy season. o in November-December.

  • A big hole in the ground where the swallows come out early in the morning and return in the afternoon. You can do rapel, but it is pretty expensive. Access is through a really weird rock formation.
