On this, the final day of the World Water Forum in Mexico City, a salutary reminder of the need to protect the unique cenotes - or sinkholes – of the Yucatán.

Cenote - photoRob Birce of the Alma Libre Bookshop in Puerto Morelos tipped me off about Steve Gerrard’s new book, Cenotes of the Riviera Maya.

Thanks to Scott Clark for allowing me to publish his photo of a cave dive in Quintana Roo earlier this month.

    Just watched the latest programme in the BBC’s superlative Planet Earth series.

    You can view a stunning two minute video clip of an subterranean cave dive. Look under "Habitats" and select "Yucatan cenotes".
