I decided to visit the Sótano del Barro and see the guacamayas (macaws) leaving the cave. To do this, I had to leave at 2am from Jalpan de Serra to get to the trailhead on time to start walking and be ready at the sinkhole before the sunrise. Hiking in the dark and on a sloping trail was an exciting experience for me, I had to use a headlamp to see the path but it was easy with the help of the guide. Once at the top, and contemplating the sinkhole, the beautiful landscape and the flight of the macaws, I felt it was worth the effort.
