Really cool place to go swim after walking around in the heat at Chichen Itza. Was about a 20 minute drive from the ruins, about $5 per person, and they provide a vest for swimming. The changing and bathroom areas were clean, they have an area for camping and a little restaurant as well. Basically a big sunken hole in... More

Beautiful unspoiled spot for viewing the natural beauty of the Yucatan through one of its many cenotes.

We went to Cenote Yokdzonot and it was phenomenal. About 80 ffoot walkway and drop into an eco-system that is for the birds and fish. The water is so clean and deep there is a net to catch people. The water is so clear and cold and there are birds flying around in circles and never leave the cenote. It... More

although we had a number of cenotes to choice from in this area, after visiting Chichen Itza, we choose Yokdzonot because it was on our way back to Merida and the favourable reviews on TripAdvisor. We were delighted with the beautiful surrounding and the fact there were very few people there at that time so we had the entire cenote... More

We did not see Il Kil but this one must be as beautiful and much quieter of course. Therefore I think it is one of the more beautiful and tranquile cenotes. We were there at 3pm and there were more locals (6) than tourists (4, us included)...

Cenote Yokdzonot is a beautiful cenote for swimming. Operated by residents of the local village, it is not crowded or filled with lots of tourists. No waiting. No standing in line. I bought my ticket (60 pesos) and went swimming. Cool water. Very safe. Very beautiful. Just 10 minutes west of Pista. It was recommended by two different hotel staff... More

This is as far as we can see a typical cenote and is managed by local people, who are very friendly and run a good, cheap restaurant on the site (we just had a limonada). We had great pleasure in walking down the steep but manageable path to the water's edge and having a refreshing swim while swallows swooped overhead.... More

What a wonderful place this is. Not only can you swim in the cool, clear deep waters of the cenote, you can have lunch, cooked by the local women of Yokdzonot after your swim. Lunch was delicious as was the lemonade. The surroundings are being planted up with all kinds of plants and trees and, in a few years time,... More

Wonderful and not over crowded. This denote is also very deep and you cannot see the bottom. But i did feel safe at all times.The staff don't speak a lot of english they understand maybe 5 words. They do offer the use of googles and snorkels free of charge. They also have a little kayak that you can use around... More
