Advetures in the frontier

A small community at the rivers edge that divides Mexico from Belize and holds one of the most splendid sink holes perfectly apt for adventurous tourists. The “Golden Crocodile” sinkhole exudes adventure from the very moment of arrival, which may be reached by walking a few minutes from the nearest town. It is found at the foot of a large rocky formation which reaches up to 70 meters full of cracks and roots, it is commonly used as a rappelling because of its natural beauty and wonderful view.
This particular sink hole has a wonderful sunset because of the cliff on its wall, whose effect causes it to look like a reptile with yellow tones; Some of the population speak of the existence of a crocodile with the same colors for which it is also named.
