I got to Chichen Itza in the afternoon and rather than paying admission for only an hour at the ruins, I asked which cenote to go swim in. They said Ik Nil was closer but more crowded, and so I took a taxi for 10 more minutes and came here (they waited while I swam -- 300 pesos round trip,... More

A day after visiting Chichen Izta and Cenote Ik Kil this was a great find, less than a 10 minute walk from the highway in town and well-marked. Yokdzonot was as beautiful as Ik Kil but without all of the tourists. It had more of a "natural feel" because it was so quiet and less disturbed. We went around 10:00am... More

We chose to visit this cenote over Ik Kil to avoid the crowds, and we were very pleased with our choice. We took a taxi from the Mayaland Resort and planned to have him pick us up 2 1/2 hours later. We were the only people there for the first hour. Then a small group showed up. It was very... More

We took a taxi from our hotel in Piste (150 pesos each way). Organised the driver pick us up again after 2 hours which worked well. The restaurant has great food and the cenote is a great place for a swim. Staff are also very friendly.

I've never seen anything like this. When we arrived we were the only ones there so we had the place totally to ourselves. If only our camera hadn't died before we got down into the cenote, not that pictures would have done it justice.

My girlfriend and I visited the Cenote in the afternoon after visiting chichen itza in the morning. The place is very quiet as most of the big touristic bus are going to the other Cenotes close to the Mayan temple. Go for a lunch at the restaurant it cheap and the food is amazing! Cooked by the local woman from... More

A really nice place to visit if you want to swim in the cavern. You will need ti shower in chlorine when you arrive to make sure you do not infect the pool. The catfish are blind so may bump into you. If you dont want to swim there is not much to do. A small coffee shop, restaurant and... More

A litlle badly indicated from the road so look out for a big banner, the cenote is 300 m further, you will see the cabanas of the ecovillage. Fee is 60 pesos. There is a little restaurant with very friendly owners and a good cook. Very good local dishes (tacos, quesadillas, empanadas,..) and really cheap. The cenote is beautiful and... More

The Yokdzonot Cenote is gorgeous. Plus, they have a small restaurant where you can have delicious and inexpensive authentic Mexican food. For less than 10 USD, we had a fantastic meal for two, including a pitcher of the best lemonade i have ever had. I would recommend to go at noon, have lunch, rest for a while and then go... More

Wonderful place run by great women working for their community. When we were there it was just us and two others and that was mid-day. It's about 20 minutes from chitzen itza (in comparison to about 10 min to the cenote were all the bus loads of people go) and def worth the trip. Ask a taxi outside of the... More
