Good cenote experience run by friendly locals

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... read more

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

Beware its cold water when you dive in - fantastic watching the house martins flying round and round in circles catching insects. Remember that most of the locals cannot swim - so careful how you approach the platforms. From the gate go left , not right (it is the hardest way).

Our tour guide at Chichen Itza recommended this particular cenote to us. If you google it you can find out a little more about the background. We had the cenote to ourselves which was lovely! We all swam and there are plenty of lifevests available. It's 45 metres deep (!!) very clear, and full of fish which the kids loved.... More

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.
