That got me thinking about last summer in Mexico, where we got to swim in underground caves called “cenotes” that were naturally created throughout the Yucatan peninsula by water filtered through limestone. It’s really a breathtaking experience to swim and snorkel in those caves. The water is crystal clear and cold, and you can see the columns of stalagmites growing underwater and even small fish sometimes.
This is me swinging into an open cenote:

And there was another one, inside a cave, where we snorkeled:
Another beautiful thing is to see a ray of sunlight coming through a hole in the top of the cave, and falling all the way through the water to the bottom.
Some underground caves are connected to each other and you can even scuba dive from one to another. Really really cool, so if you are in Mexico definitely try it!
