The Cave of Swallows, Aquismon

4.5
#3 of 12 in Nature in San Luis Potosi
Geologic Formation Nature / Park
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 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.  more »
