First travel tip of 2014 is this hidden paradise on earth.

‘Ik Kil’ is an open air cenote (collapsed cave) in the Yucatan region in Mexico with sparkling emerald water 26 meters below ground level. Vines and waterfalls are dripping down from the open air hole and the scene is like taken straight from a Disney fairy tale. We cant wait to take a dive into this gem and it now on the bucketlist

The Yucatan region in Mexico is said to have over  5,000 cenotes because of the large amounts of limestone rocks in the region. Limestone because of their soft nature tend to sink in of there is water under it (sink-holes form when the limestone is eroded by water). Hence the phenomenon.
