Yucatan Cave Lake, Mexico
The Yucatan Cave Lake in the Yucatan Peninsula is Mexico’s prized possession. Aside from the overwhelming beauty emitted by the secret water hole, the lake is revered as a gift from the Mayan god. Unfortunately for visitors, this means that aside from physically being hard to get to, locals and visitors are actually banned from frolicking in its waters.
