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, 200 feet above the rainforest canopy that grows out from the sinkhole basin.

At the site of the sinkhole, your guides will rig you to a system of rappelling ropes for your descent to the basin below.
The sinkhole is not actually black, but you can't see the bottom from where you start.  Once you're at the bottom you will pack up gear and settle down for a relaxing lunch spread out in a picnic fashion and served by your guides. A series of ladders and steep banks take you back up to the side of the sinkhole, where you hike back down to the point of departure.
