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.

    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.

    Incredible spectacle show that half-km-deep trench and see the birds flying inside it, leaving and entering as projectiles. You have low 586 steps but there are several sections without steep slopes that allow you to do so without an extreme effort to climb. They can hold very well the local rapeleros so you poke into the pit which is impressive. Along the way there are dining options although I think that they will end up polluting the area. You must bring a good vehicle to get to the entrance. Preferable in the evening when the birds return to their nests. Impossible for persons with motor disabilities or heart problems.

    It is impressive to see how the birds entering their nest to rest, which is the basement deep impact. You can go in the morning to see how go birds or in the evening to see how arrive
