The Black Hole Drop is a must do Belize activity for adrenaline seekers. This adventure starts off with a hike into the foothills of the Maya Mountains. You will arrive at the edge of the Actun Loch Tunich sink hole, which sits over 300 feet above the basin below and 200 feet above the rainforest canopy that grows out from the sink hole basin.

Get your adrenaline rushing on the hunt for the invasive lionfish. The lionfish is a non-native species in the Caribbean Sea, it has no natural predators and the best control method is to kill and eat it! Arm yourself with a speargun and a snorkel and help keep the lionfish numbers down. Lionfish are also healthy and delicious to eat. Guides at the Glover’s Reef Basecamp and Lighthouse Reef Basecamp will be happy to show you the best way to hunt for lionfish and prepare a gourmet dinner featuring your freshly caught lionfish.
