A nice swim in this clean beautiful unique place. The cenote was amazing and the restrooms and changing area were really nice and constantly cleaned. The food at the restaurant was bad at best, with cheap prep and presentation, barely wiped tables. Prices were very good for water, etc.

we visited this wonderful cenote in september 2014 - and it was wonderful. our visit was during an excursion to Chichen Itza and this was our final stop before home. the stairs are quite slippery - s mind yourself! if your not a strong swimmer make sure you take advantage of the life jackets available, my partner decided he didn't...

Spent an hour here as a part of a group tour to Chichen Itza. The park grounds are pretty and there are clean, spacious dressing rooms. After a required quick shower you walk down carved stairs surrounding the cenote. You can then dive into the water from the edge or take steps to two different levels of diving areas. The... More

We visited this with a group of friends in December 2014, as happened to be staying in a hotel 3min away from it (Dolores Alba) - it was so good we went back the next day. I think Red Bull held their extreme diving competition there in 2014 - no wonder with its crystal-clear water and the scenery (there are... More

Unbelievably cool. A must do. Floating on my back in this cenote with small waterfalls, vines extending 100 feet down from the surface and the sun shining down through the cave like opening above, was nothing short of miraculous. Another world. I certainly understood why the Mayans felt there a connection to spirit in this place.

We visited the cenote as part of our trip to Chichen Itza as it is very close to the site. It was a fantastic experience in a beautiful natural setting. If you have a waterproof camera or a cover then definitely take it as I was gutted not to be able to get shots from the water looking up to... More

I spent four weeks in Riviera Maya, Mexico and visited cenotes in Tulum. However they were not so easy to access as this big round hole in the ground Ik Kil. I went here as part of a tour that included Chichen Itza, Valladolid, and Ik Kil that cost $50 per person including lunch and all entrance fees. The entrance... More
