After months exploring underwater channels, a group of divers were able to connect two underwater caverns in eastern Mexico to discover what could potentially be the biggest flooded cave on earth.

The discovery was made by the Gran Acuifero Maya (GAM) and it could help in understanding the development of the long lost Maya civilization which inhabited the region.

“It allows us to appreciate much more clearly how the rituals, the pilgrimage sites and ultimately the great pre-Hispanic settlements that we know emerged,” — Guillermo de Anda, GAM director and underwater archaeologist.
