Absolutely Joakim. Perfect match and looking real good. Thanks for sharing
All pics are awesome!!!! think are the best from the past weeks!
The next pics are not showing my watch, actually it was taken past year, but since I see a lot of beautiful landscapes from many parts of the world I would like to contribute with one of the most amazing nature places on Mexico.
This is a Cenote located at Yucatán Mexico (where the Mayas used to live)
A Cenote is basically a deep hole in the ground where you will find crystal clear water in the bottom. That water comes from underground rivers, there are thousand of cenotes around Yucatán, some of them are still hidden in the nature waiting to be discovered.
Swimming in this Cenotes is a great experience but in came with a risk, there are water currents that can drag you to the underground rivers.
The deep of this cenotes can reach hundreds of meters.
hope the pics can make justice to this nature wonder!

Scary. What's the water temperature at the surface?
Ah, cenotes! I once went SCUBA diving in the Yucatan and one day was spent exploring a cenote. It was one of the most memorable of my diving trips, especially since I had only been recently certified. Thank you for reviving my memories, fitsector. Beautiful location you visited there.
Japc, the temps are pretty normal at the surface but can get quite cold below. In fact, when you're diving you can see a thermal barrier between the ice cold and warmer water currents. It looks a lot like the air ripples you see from heat.

Thanks guys, it was an amazing experience. about the temp I think Xevious is totally right, and considering we had near 110°F that day... well diving in that water was a real relief!

Fito that's breathtaking. Great great shots. Have to google everything later. That's amazing and truly wonderful addition. We didn't cover Mexico. ( as far as I remember ) Now we got North, Middle and South America.. Brilliant. Thank you very much for your time and effort and thanks for sharing the pictures with our G Forum. Tom
