The Black Hole Drop

Cave Adventure with Caves Branch

"The Mother of all Caves"... Actun Loch Tunich! This expedition starts off with a 1.5 mile vigorous hike along a very steep and often slippery trail into the foothills of the Maya Mountains. The edge of the Actun Loch Tunich sinkhole sits 300 feet above the basin below and 200 feet above the rainforest canopy that grows out from the sinkhole basin. When you reach the sinkhole, fully trained caving guides safely rig a system of rappelling ropes for your decent into the basin below.

You'll experience an adrenaline rush as you repel the first 10 feet off the rocky face.  The next 200 feet provides an unforgettable experience and sights to behold.  Be sure to take your time to enjoy the views -- they are stunning!  The last 100 feet takes you down through the rainforest canopy.  Once at the bottom, you will explore the inside of the sinkhole before you trek back.

“Golden was an excellent guide for birding, we saw a wide variety of birds”

Everything here is perfect for honeymooners and active travelers! Beautiful grounds, tons of interesting tours and good food & drinks to help you relax and enjoy yourself

Wonderful warm staff, excellent guides, variety of inland tours, very comfortable rooms

This is my 6th Belize dive adventure in the past 18 years and my best ALL around experience.

Room beautifully decorated and clean! The entire staff was extremely helpful & courteous. Food was the best! Tour guides extremely knowledgeable!

Everything surpassed our expectations. We came here as new diver because we wanted an operation we could trust and we found that here.

Just keep doing what you’re doing… The Mayan tour history was incredible; the guide was extremely knowledgeable and profoundly connected to his heritage.

Overall, great experience! Staff made you feel extremely welcome and tended to your every need. Tours gave you a taste of Belize and the resort gave you a taste of heaven!

I’ve been to quite a few dive resorts. Hamanasi is hands down, the best so far. Thank you for a wonderful time.

Hamanasi helped introduce my family to the Garifuna & Maya people of Belize. Everything is so close – the mountains, caves, waterfalls, animals, ruins – this is such a peaceful country with rich culture and a people that cares about the environment. What a hidden gem! Thank you!
