    The Ik Kil cenote near Chichen Itza, Mexico. It's an open cenote about 196 feet wide and about 130 feet deep. A cenote forms when sections of a cave roof collapse leaving a vertical shaft and exposing the underlying cave or cave system. #beautiful

    I can cross this off my bucket list, went there on our honeymoon :) --Swimmers float in the saphirre waters of the Ik-Kil cenote, near the Maya site of Chichén Itzá in Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. Cenote means “natural well” in Spanish. Sinkholes occurring at sea level will fill up as high as the water table, creating the famous clear blue pools, used by the Maya royalty for both relaxation and ritual sacrifices. found via Tumblr.
