Rutahsa Adventures, in cooperation with the Cincinnati Grotto of the NSS, has organized a special trip for cavers to Guatemala, scheduled for March or April 2007. This excursion will be an amazing mix of caving in some famous caves, exploring spectacular karst terrane for new caves, and cave mapping, topped off with a visit to romantic colonial Antigua Guatemala and a climb up an active volcano. We will visit six or seven caves (more, depending on what our explorations turn up) most of which are active stream systems-- prepare for wet caving, but in waters that are delightfully warm compared to streams in US caves! We will also spend a half day at one of the world's most amazing karst features, the fabulous Semuc Champey travertine bridge. And all along our way we will enjoy tropical scenery, jungle flora and fauna, and the friendly Maya and Hispanic people of Guatemala. Participation will be limited to approximately 18 cavers, and participants will need to be experienced and properly equipped cavers.
