I'd been wanting to visit the cenotes in Mexico for a while now, and this did not disappoint. The water was cool, though the sheer depth of it was a little overwhelming! It started off quite full of visitors, but by the end of our swim we were the only ones in the water, so we got some good pics!... More

We came from cozumel with a guide to check out the cenotes. This one was very nice and jumping from the top steps was a lot of fun. The park area had some beautiful flowers. They hold the red bull high diving competition at this cenote and I can see why ! The water was not crystal clear like some... More

This is not a snorkeling cenote, but it's cool anyway, as long as you arrive before 11am and beat the tour buses. About $7USD per person.

This is an absolute must see when visiting Chichen Itza. This was part of a tour that i went on to go and see the Chichen Itza pyramids and it was the most pleasant surprise. I have never seen anything quite so beautiful! The story behind it is also very meaningful and spiritual. I would love to visit here again... More

This was a highlight to our journey to Chichen Itza. We were told on the way to the Mayan ruins, we would stop at this Eco-Arqueological Park and could take a dip in this beautiful natural pool. There were a LOT of folks in line to go swim, swing off the rope and or dive in from the stone steps.... More

This is such a beautiful Cenotes! The water was nice and cool. It was amazing to be swimming with the tiny fishes. I wish I had the courage to jump into the water but the thought of it being 150 deep scared me! We went in October so it was off season, thus not too crowded. It was perfect!

We stopped here after seeing Chichen Itza. It was so majestic! My husband jumped in and loved it! You just have to see it in person.

If you visit Chichen Itza, don't miss the opportunity to go to the Eco-Arquelogical Park Ik Kil; which is mainly a cenote or fresh water sinkhole that were used by the Mayan for religious purposes and to get fresh water too. The park has lockers that you can rent and you can left your stuff safe, as well as life... More
