Yucatan....
The Yucatan peninsula sits on the southern tip of Eastern Mexico. A popular area to visit, the peninsula is known for its unique geology, natural beauty, outstanding coastline and ancient Mayan ruins. The states national parks shouldnt be missed nor should the incredible underground lakes otherwise known as the Cenotes.

Idol Rock : Brimham Moor( UK )

Estimated to weight around 200 tons, Idol Rock balances its enormous weight atop a comparatively tiny, pyramidal stone upon which frighteningly high pressures are being expended

Durdle Door : Jurassic Coast ( England )

Durdle Door is a natural limestone arch on the Jurassic Coast near Lulworth in Dorset, England. The name Durdle is derived from an Old English word 'thirl' meaning bore or drill. It is privately owned by the Welds, a family who own 12,000 acres (50 km2) in Dorset in the name of the Lulworth Estate. It is open to the public

The huge balanced rock known as, er, Balanced Rock can be found in the Garden of the Gods, a Registered National Natural Landmark located near Pikes Peak in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The rock looms over a paved access road that provides an excellent view " hopefully, not the last view an unlucky driver ever seen

Balancing Rock in Digby, Nova Scotia, is a 30-odd foot high spire of columnar basalt that has gradually eroded out from the cliff face over countless years. The town of Digby has lately built an infrastructure of railings and walkways so that access to this striking phenomenon of nature is now much safer " both for tourists and for the rock itself.

El Torcal Nature Reserve, situated in the mountains south of Antequera, Spain, features a plethora of karst limestone rock formations that typically feature tall, tapering spires of rock combined with horizontal weathering patterns. The result of this combination is often expressed in huge "flapjack stacks ¯ that are actually more stable than they appear.
