Kayaking Underground in Mexico

The Rio Chontalcoatlán runs underground for nearly six kilometers, carving an intricate tunnel system in the heart of the Grutas de Cacahuamilpa National Park near Guerrero, Mexico. With high-lumen headlamps as their only guides, paddlers Jared Meehan, Andrew Pollock, and Rafa Ortiz navigated a three-kilometer stretch of the Chontalcoatlán. This video of their run from River Roots makes us think that rushing into the dark rapids of subterranean rivers may be the greatest thrill-factor.
