A Surfers Dream – Jaws, Peahi, Hawaii
Jaws is the best place to visit if you love to surf, as the waves can peak up to 80 feet in height! These waves could be the best surf of your life, but it could also end in death. The best way, and probably the only way to conquer the waves is to do be towed in by a jet ski as the waves are too big to approach by just you and your surfboard. However a lot of the time, there’s big surf events on. So if you want to surf here, you will need to get your timing right for the right waves. Here’s a YouTube video which really does put into perspective how big the waves actually are.
Cave of Swallows, Mexico
Base Jumping is a terrifying experience in itself. It’s a very unique experience. The opening of the Cave of Swallows is 196 feet wide. The lowest point of the cave is 1,092 feet. That is a very long free fall. The Cave of Swallows is considered the largest cave shaft in the world. The second pit of Mexico’s cave is the 11th deepest in the world. (1,220 feet.) When you do decide to base jump in the cave, prepare yourself for the cold temperatures below. And if it’s rainy, it will be like a waterfall. Although it is in the top 20 deepest caves in the world, it’s only a 12 second free fall drop. I know that it sounds disappointing, but just wait until you get inside, it’s beautiful. Nothing that you’ve ever seen before! Look into it here.
