Cave of Swallows

Sótano de las Golondrinas

Stay in Aquismón, and discover the Huasteca Postosina area’s other attractions, such as the Cascada de Tamul, one of the country’s most breathtaking waterfalls.

Deep in the middle of the Huasteca Postosina region hides Sótano de las Golondrinas, Mexico’s most stunning natural chasm. It is an enormous vertical hollow, a result of the area’s karst geology. Over millions of years, water erosion cut through the limestone soil, creating a natural refuge where you can admire a variety of bird species, especially swifts (easily confused with swallows, explaining the name, Cave of Swallows), as well as parrots, green-cheeked parakeets, and bats.
