For lunch, your guides will prepare a underground riverside picnic spread complete with picnic blanket, tortillas with cold cuts, juice, and fresh fruits and vegetables. Eating your lunch by headlight, to the sounds of the underground caves while chatting with your fellow adventurers will be an experience you will not soon forget.

Black Hole Drop

The “Mother of all Caves”... Actun Loch Tunich! Not for the faint of heart. Start with a vigorous hike up into the foothills of the Maya Mountains to the mouth of the cave. The edge of the Actun Loch Tunich sink hole sits over 300 feet above the basin below, 200 feet above the rain forest canopy that grows out from the sink hole basin.

Our fully trained caving guides rig a system of rappelling ropes for your descent to the basin below. The first 10 feet provides the adrenaline, the next 200 feet provides an unforgettable experience and sights to behold, the last 100 feet takes you down through the rain forest canopy. The sink hole is
not actually black, but you can’t see the bottom from where you start. Once you’re at the bottom you rest with a delicious picnic lunch.

The next question is... how do we get you out? Climb of course! After a return hike including some rock climbing, ladder climbing, and a lot of sweating, it’s just a short ride back to the lodge for a dip in the natural saltwater pool with a well deserved cold drink.
