We visited here as part of a tour to Chichen Itza; lots of tour groups visit here so when we went it was very busy; however it is clear why it is so famous and popular; it really is a sight to be seen! One of the highlights was jumping off the ledge into the water and then looking up... More

This is a must, especially jumping off of the diving area into the cenote! Admission is free but must pay for parking (about $15 USD). Would also recommend renting a life jacket, water is 150 ft deep and crowded with other people in life jackets, making it difficult to swim.

This place was part of our trip to Chchen Itza and as luck would have it we went here first just before lunch. From what I gather this is a quieter time and certainly there didn't seem the crowds like others have reported. It was still fairly busy though. We quickly got changed and showered, they ask you to do... More

I was really looking forward to this, the Cenote is beautiful, you have to walk a while down stairs to get down to the cenote. It was beautiful but just too crowded, unfortunately. We swam for a short period of time here as there were too many people around the ladders getting in and out of the cenote, people were... More

After spending time and energy in Chichen Itza, Cenote Ik Kil was an excellent option. However, it was way too crowded since it is pretty close to Chichen Itza and most tours offer this site. Facilities were clean and big. Life vests for babies, lockers, you can bring your camera and tripod, no fees for that. Children under 6 years... More

Ik-Kil Cenote is one of my favourite places on Earth. So beautiful and relaxing, the water is cool and refreshing after the searing heat of Chichen Itza! Floating around the cenote really makes you feel connected to nature and the beauty of this magical place. It's a good idea to get there early if you can, to avoid the crowds... More
