Underground River of Mexico 2 by StudioMaya Underground River of Mexico 2 by StudioMaya
I took this photo in Mexico in 2001. I'll submit a series of 3. It's one of the many Underground Rivers there are at the Yúcatan. It's amazing to see them live, the photos can never show enough how exciting this is. You need to experience it.

Full view is recommended! Thank You for comments and :+fav:

I was in Mexico travelling around the Yúcatan and had one of my best adventures in my life, the second best I think. Travelling around in Thailand north regions might be the best I think...'til now at least :

I also swam with dolphins, one of the best life adventures I've ever had. If you haven't done it, DO IT! It's amazing! I've got a enlarged framed photo of me and one of the dolphins hugging on my wall :) It's a nice memory I'll never forget! [link]

Which river is that? Is the one of Xcaret in Cancún?

Well no, not IN Cancún :) [link] * [link] * [link] * It may have been in the municipality but it's outside Cancún, 44 miles / 70km south on highway 307. It's even south from Playa Del Carmen.

:giggle: Well...the whole Xcaret is no longer a place to visit, the hurricane Wilma devastated the whole place :( But at least I was there before that and got my photos :) Thank you for your feedback :)

Yeah, me too. But I heard they have started to rebuild it, but I'm not sure if that will be the same again....

I doubt it would be the same after something like that. I mean how could it??

Yeah...do they remember and have drawings/pictures of everything how it looked before it was destroyed? I doubt that.

my husband has seen underground rivers (tho, not quite as deep as this) in the Solomon Islands. He too, says you have to actually see it to believe it!

He is going over again in June, they are building a school dormitoy (I think) and wants me to go, but the villages they go to are sooooo remote. No electricity, shops, flushing toilets, warm showers etc. Two of my boys have gone previously & absolutely LOVED it, plus it good for them to see there are people in this world with so much less (and yet are so completely happy) that they should be grateful for what they DO have.

I agree, it is very good for children to see the world and other cultures. And to be grateful about how well we are living, how others don't have all what we have. Very educatening (I hope that's right?). I'm very proud of my son because the trips all over the world have made him to a humle considerate person (well a little of my upbringing also I think) and he is very good at english and spoke it fluently in early age. He's the best in his class in english. Pity that he didn't go with me and my (at the time) boyfriend to Mexico, but he has been on almost every trip I've done around the world. I don't understand people who says that they wanna travel the world and do adventures before they get children, that the life almost gets impossible when the children arrives. What? I have never had any kind of trouble with having a child AND travel the world AND go on adventures, ever! I think the opposite, what an opportunity to this together as a family and he's able to get an education few people are allowed to! He has seen poor dirty people living on the streets begging for food in Thailand, he has seen the Pyramids in Egypt...for example. And I will never stop bringing him (or if I get more kids) with me on my trips. Life is a big adventure, just start to explore it! :hug:

you've seen the pyramids???
I nearly got there in 2000, but 2 weeks before we left, the trip was cancelled. That was when the very first lot of fighting broke out over there. It has always been a childhood dream of mine to go there.
I agree what you say about taking children. I think most people are too lazy to bother with them, and when you are young is the best time to experience new things like travel.
Or people wait until their kids are off their hands and grown up before they travel. I would rather see 'family holiday snaps' anytime!
Good for you Maya, for taking your son when you travel!

Yes, I was in Egypt in 2001. I have a photo in my gallery I think :) Oh yeah, I found it [link]

My ex mother in law (well I have never been married but I call her that anyway) she had 3 children and said to her husband when the children were small that "when the kids are grown up and have moved out, then we are going to travel"...Her husband got stroke at age 50 and got paralysed, they were never able to travel when the children grew up and moved out...So my advise is to travel and live now, tomorrow can be too late! :hug:
