Things to do

Sotano de las Golondrinas - Cave of the Swallows

San Luis Potosi is a glorious secret for lovers of outdoor adventure. Encompassing territory as diverse as rainforest and high desert, scored by hundreds of majestic mountains, adventure awaits in the state’s every corner. At Sotano de las Golondrinas, you don’t just rappel 1234 ft to the bottom of the cliff—you go deeper, beneath the surface into one of the world’s most spectacular single-chamber caverns. A flurry of birds helps you find your way down. Back at the surface it’s rafting beneath 344-ft Tamul falls. End your day by biking in the mountains around quaint Real de Catorce.
