The Carnival logo: A red, white,
and blue Y-shaped ship horn.
Visitors in a cave gaze up at
thousands of stalactites.
Group exclaims: Wow!A title: Amazing Secret River;
Cozumel, Mainland, Mexico.
Hello, welcome!A man greets visitors
arriving in a van.
A woman zips into a wetsuit,
a man straps-on a helmet,
and someone buckles
a floatation vest.
A local man chants and waves
a chalice of burning incense
toward the travelers.He holds his hand to
his heart and bows.
They return the gesture.Guests hike down a jungle path,
then follow a walkway
into a massive cave entrance.Lights on their helmets glow.Holding walking sticks,
children and adults
wade through shin-deep water.A guide sweeps her
flashlight across a wall
resembling melting candle wax.The group kneels in the water
as the guide points out
thousands of needle-like
stalactites overhead.
Two kids share a smile.The group follows
another passage
surrounded by delicate
rock formations.
Wearing water shoes,
they move easily
through the ankle-deep water.The guide smiles and gestures as
she stands beside a rock column.
She holds a kid’s handas he steps down into
chest-deep water.
The visitor’s headlamps flicker
across the cave ceiling
as they swim in the clear
underground river.
The kids float on their backs
past coral-like formations.
The group wades
through a low passage,
moving just inches
below the cave ceiling.
The illuminated
water ripples gently
as guests crouch
low in the passage.
A man passes between
a rocky column
and a cluster of massive,
ribbony stalactites.
The visitors climb stairs,
emerging into
the filtered jungle sunlight.Carnival!
