Divers exploring caves on the Yucatan Peninsula found a river that flowed 95 miles through underground chambers and caverns in the region. A team of explorers has been marking the caves for several years now and managed to find a link between two very large limestone cave systems in the Yucatan. The river winds through those gaves in a maze of tunnels with hundreds of twists and turns.
Am I the only one, upon reading about this discovery, who immediately thought “Damn, that would be fun to kayak”? Obviously much of it is completely submerged, but that doesn’t mean I couldn’t give it a try! 🙂
