Inside Ik-Kil Maya Cenote
Mexico

On the way to Chichen Itza we detoured a little bit for a swim in the natural pool Ik-Kil, where once the human offerings to the god Chak were thrown. Nowadays the tourists cast themselves in these cool waters. The water is about 26 meters(80 feet) underground. Long time ago the "ceiling" has collapsed and revealed its beauty to the ancient civilizations and us. Similar underground natural pools are called cenotes by the localc, which are common in the Yucatan. Its depth is 40 meters and the diameter about 60 meters. There are changing rooms, lockers and a restaurant for tourists at the top near the entrance.

More About North America

North America includes Mexico, the United States, Canada, and Gotham City.The region temporarily existed as a Protectorate of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Norton I, with its capital being the city of San Francisco. Sadly, this term of benevolent ebullience lasted a brief two decades and ended c. 1880.The United States is now the dominant country of North America. It arose as a nation only 225 years ago after a successful rebellion against the British government under King George III. From a distance, it appears that the eastern coastlines of North and South America fit exactly into the west coast of Africa. In fact, about 250 million years ago these continents really were all connected in one land mass that we have named Pangaea.With such a foundation in tectonic unity, there is no doubt that someday soon the people on every continent of earth will realize their fundamental similarities.
