A very deep and largely unexplored sinkhole. Its dimensions are impressive, with a crater about 500 meters in diameter and a depth of 455 meters, almost vertical. With 15 million cubic meters, it is the second deepest sinkhole in the world. 

To peer into this abyss from its edge, you will have to defy vertigo, as it seems like you are looking into a bottomless pit.

It is also home to a great diversity of fauna, including the green macaw, which puts on a unique spectacle when flocks emerge from the sinkhole in the mornings. 

To reach the sinkhole, it is necessary to be accompanied by a guide, as the entire area is quite untouched.

Activities:

  • Canyoning
  • Bird Watching
  • Hiking

Location

From Jalpan de la Serra, take Highway 69 and, at km 24, take the left turn. After 26 km on a dirt road, you will reach Santa María de Cocos. From there, you must walk approximately 7 km to reach the sinkhole. This marvel is located 46.3 km, approximately an hour and a half from Jalpan de Serra.
