Yucatan - In the Kingdom of the Jaguar God
Yucatan - Im Reich des Jaguargottes
The Central American peninsula of Yucatán is famous for its fascinating wildlife and exotic flora and fauna. In this exciting report, extreme diver and pilot Herbert Nitsch meets remarkable scientists and daring adventurers who take him along on subterranean diving expeditions and jungle trips. He uncovers mysterious relics of the long lost Maya culture and follows the traditional rituals of today's indigenous population. In Belize, Guatemala and Mexico he explores the last jaguar and howler monkey reserves and tests his capacity and courage in deep meandering caves and torrential rapids.
