Thoughts: With a total length of 700 yards, the Aktun-Chen cave is one of the largest and oldest in Mexico. According to geological estimates, its formation started over 5 million years ago. However, the cenote itself is thought to be much younger, around 30 thousand years old. It all started during the last ice age when the ocean level dropped drastically laying bare a giant coral reef with its vast underwater caves that subsequently became a platform for most of the Yucatan Peninsula. Seeping through its porous surface, heavy tropical rains created numerous underground rivers filled partly with fresh rainwater and partly with salty groundwater. In some places, the soil was corroded by acidic rainfalls and collapsed revealing the water bodies running below. This is how the legendary cenotes of Yucatan appeared – including the one located in Aktun-Chen!Use code: 15OFF
