    So this is really cool right. We have three big cave systems in the Yucatan, Dos Ojos in the north, Sac Actun in the middle and Ox Bel Ha in the south. There have been teams of divers trying to connect them for the last 16+ years.There's nothing quite as cool as seeing pottery or bones two hours into a cave and trying to fathom that it was left there when it was a dry system! So many of the caves have contrasting features it's cool finding out they are all part of the same cave!

    There's something really soothing about watching caving diving videos. I guess it's the whole cave diving scene; stress shortens your dive, good skills and planning reduce stress.

    Of course there's UK cave diving. More caving with diving and frequently very poor vis and tight restrictions.

    There's a whole bunch of old mines too! Definitely something I'd like to go take a look at sometime soon!

    In Mexico? There's a few in the UK, few and far between though.

    Not Mexico sorry. I meant in the UK, read "...a whole bunch..." as "...some...".
