Ik Kil is one of the thousands of cenotes in the Yucatan. A cenote is a natural sink-hole which is formed when ground over an underground river collapses. There are facilities within the vicinity, however they were not very clean due to the overwhelming number of people visiting. You MUST rinse off before entering, and bio-degradable sunscreen is highly recommended... More

I visited Ik Kil with my Husband and his Family in February 2014. We were travelling to Chichen Itza and stopped with our tour guide on the way. It was fantastic! I could not believe how perfectly round it was nor how utterly deep it was (I jumped from the sides). Wearing the life-jackets was a pain but I can... More

This cenote is very close to Chichen Itza, it is an amazing cenote but very crowded. I took some pictures and left, no way to stay in the queue to go down.

Stopped on the way back from Chichen Itza, lovely cenote but way too many people in it, no limit it seems, no supervision, and very deep, had to queue to get out which is fine if you are a strong swimmer but could have induced panic if not!! Best avoided on an August afternoon!

Tne cenote is really beautiful amd the water is warm but it was too crowed. There was a queue to go down, a queue to jump to the water, a queue to get out of the water, a queue to go up.

Stopped off here on our way back to our hotel from Chichen Itza, it was part of the trip, and had an amazing time. The way the sun shines through the roots and plants down into the pool gives it quite a magical look. The water is so clear and not at all cold like was expected. There are changing... More

I researched different cenotes before I finally decided to go to Ik Kil cause I can go right there after Chichen Itza and it seemed beautiful. Even though I had seen pictures of it before I went, it was still absolutely gorgeous when I see it in person. It was easy to get to and the grounds were well kept.... More

We did several cenotes on our 2 weeks in Mexico in early July. Ik-Kil is one I really wanted to check out. Do not leave your cash in your car, as you will be nickle and dimed to pieces once you park. Parking our rental car was free. But there is the admission to the cenote, locker for your clothes... More

This cenote has a diameter of about 100 ft with the depth being about 100 ft. The water is cold as it's collected from rain and an underground water table and the... More
