A guest rappelling down from the canopy into the ATM Cave during the Black Hole Drop Tour at The Rainforest Lodge at Sleeping Giant
Starting at $105.00 USD per person
Black Hole Drop Tour
The Black Drop Tour takes you to Actun Loch Tunich, known as the “Mother of All Caves.” You won’t get there on foot though. While this journey starts with a hike up the foothills of the Maya Mountains, to get to Actun Loch Tunich, visitors must rappel 300 feet down. This is where the black drop comes into play, as it’s nearly impossible to see the sinkhole down below. After you’ve been carefully harnessed, you’ll rappel through the rainforest canopy until you meet the cavern, where you’ll stop for a picnic lunch. Getting back to the top will require rock climbing and ladder scaling. While this tour is recommended for those who are physically fit, it will also require a strong mind to challenge the heights. Only fully trained licensed tour guides can take you through this tour to ensure your safety.

A close up view of the sleeping giant sculpture at The Rainforest Lodge at Sleeping Giant

Qawa Ki'ché

artist: Marcelo Patiño & Gabriella Giusti

Qawa Ki’ché is Qʼeqchiʼ Maya and translates to God of the Jungle. This is the artists’ attempt at capturing and preserving the spirit of the iconic Sleeping Giant that The Rainforest Lodge is known for. The Maya giant is a nod to the Maya Mountains the lodge is nestled in and its surrounding communities. Ancient, revered, and adorned in jewelry, he sleeps peacefully in the jungle he created and protects.

A wooden sculpture of woman holding a toucan in the forest at The Rainforest Lodge at Sleeping Giant

las tres marias

artist: Lucia Meyers

Sculpted with a chainsaw, this piece is dedicated to womanhood and freedom. Las Tres Marias consists of 3 women sculpted out of purple heart wood. Each represents a phase of womanhood. The symbol of freedom forms part of two of the sculptures in the form of Pajaritos Que Vuelan which translates to Birds Who Fly. Ultimately, this piece may be interpreted as an individual woman achieving independence or the feminist movement acting as a catalyst for all women.

ah puka'an garrobo

artist: diego haretche

Ah Puka’An Garrobo directly translates iguana below the ground. The largest installation from the 2023 Artist in Residence program, this piece represents the spikes on the iguana’s back.
