This was a lovely experience! We stopped off here after visiting Chichen. I adored the fact that the fish were huge and I could swim with them and the whole place is a bit magical by nature bar the fact that it is a bit like an amazing natural swimming pool, so lots of peopl. So all in all the... More

Was our first time experiencing a cenote and what an experience. Beautiful and a great swim, We thoroughly enjoyed the views and the meal at the restaurant on site. Lockers are $3 US and you can also rent life jackets if you're not a strong swimmer. It's very peaceful there and the catfish swim around you which is a nice... More

We visited the Cenote ater having walked around the pyramid the whole, extremely hot day. This therefore came as a huge relief. Not only is the Park so beautiful you wonder howcome something like this could be created by nature, but somehoe it feels like magic to be there and swin in an incredibly deep and cold water full of...

This was the last stop of a tour we booked at our hotel in Cancun. After a long hot day at Chichen Itza it was very refreshing to jump in the cool water. True it was quite busy, but well worth the short wait. The view upwards from the middle is great! The whole family had a wonderful time cooling... More

Cenote is great. And the hotel is good too. If you stay you can get into the cenote any time, even at night... We didn't do it, because at night they put some artificial lights, so you can see the fishes... and for me was not a experience i wanted to try. Next day in the morning i swam in... More

Went here as part of a Chichen-Itza / Ik Kil tour with Cancun Passion. Found a swim in the cool water to be refreshing after being outside in the hot sun all day. Quite crowded while we were there. Only thing to do besides swim is jump off a rock ledge that is maybe 10-15’ from the surface of the... More

Swimming in the cenote was great. We got a locker and there were change rooms and the swim was fun. We went to the cenote as a part of a tour and along with it came a lunch at the restaurant. The food wasn't too good. I would not recommend eating there. Otherwise, the cenote is totally worth the visit.

Ik Kil is open from 9am to 5pm every day, We drove a rental car from Playa Del Carmen and arrived at 9am sharp (we set off at 6:30am). We were the first to arrive and didn't see anyone for the 40 minutes that we were there. It was surreal to be there alone. It was deadly silent with nothing... More
