95-Mile River Links Caves in Mexico
Cave divers in Mexico’s Yucàtan Peninsula have discovered what may be the world’s longest underground river, connecting two cave systems with a waterway of at least 95 miles.
A group of foreign divers exploring the area near the Caribbean beach resort of Playa del Carmen have yet to name the river but believe it could be connected to two other major systems, adding more than 125 miles to its length.
Prior to the discovery, the Palawan underground river in the Philippines and Vietnam’s Son Trach River vied for the record as the world’s longest.
