The Cave of Swallows, one of Mexico’s many beautiful natural tourist attractions, was discovered by humans on December 27, 1966. The cave is the largest known cave shaft in the world, and could easily accommodate a New York City skyscraper. It is also home to white-collared swifts and green parakeets that burst into the light of dawn and return at twilight to sleep. The cave is located in central Mexico, in the state of San Luis Potosí. Given the steep drop of the cave, more adventurous tourists are base jumping into the depths with a parachute – but experts caution to remember to pull the ripcord within all of the distracting beauty.
