While in Mexico in July, we took a trip away from the beaches and ruins, deep into the jungle, to Aktun Chen. We walked through underground caves, swam in Cenotes, and saw loads of wild animals while we were there.
The huge meteorite that made the dinosaurs extinct landed on the Yucutan Peninsula in Mexico, which happened to be where we were staying. When the meteorite hit the earth, it broke up into smaller rocks which bounced back into the atmosphere, before falling back down to earth. They created thousands of sinkholes across the Yucutan, which have over time filled up with fresh groundwater, creating cenotes and underground rivers. Today, you can swim in most of the cenotes, alongside tropical fish, and turtles.
Below are some of the photos I took while we were exploring Aktun Chen.
