There are THOUSANDS of cenotes in the peninsula. No need to fight for a space in this one. If you see a handmade sign for a cenote, chances are you will have it all to yourself and pay 2 american dollars or something crazy cheap. We went to Cenote Azul near Xcaret. It was a semi colapsed cave literally in... More

We were some of the very first people there and would recommend that less of a busn fight. Great fun.fairly basic set up there but the cenote was the reason we went.

Our family stopped here on our way to Chichen Itza. Such an amazing thing to see. Walking up to it and looking down takes your breath away. Then, you lose it again when you get to the bottom and look up. We were able to jump in from a platform approx. 15 feet above the water's surface. There was also... More

We stopped at Cenote Ik Kil after sweating at Chichen Itza. It was a very refreshing stop after being so hot! We rented a car in Cancun and drove out to Chichen Itza early, so we got to the cenote at about noon. There were a couple big tour busses, some tour vans, and a few cars in the parking... More

I loved this cenote my friend and I traveled here a few years it was an amazing experience. If you go to Cancun you have to visit this place.

Get here early! We booked a private guide who got us here around 10:30am before the big crowds. There were literally 4 people in the water, and felt like a private paradise. I'm sure it's just as mesmerizing when full of people, but the quiet was surreal.

We went here as part of a trip to Chichen Itza. We had about 45 mins to change swim, and then change again, so abit pushed for time. The swim in the cenote was great, though. You can rent a locker - watch your key its $20 to get a new one. You then walk down about 50 steps and... More

My husband and I traveled here several years ago with my coworkers on a company trip. It truly was amazing to see...breathtaking...to be exact. The restaurant itself was only subpar but edible. When I'm on vacation I find very few things to complain about and this trip was no exception. FUN! FUN!FUN! Make sure if your in the area you... More

Our teens loved jumping off the highest spot, and it was a great way for all of us to cool off after a day at Chichen Itza. It got a bit crowded when the tour buses arrived, but not too bad. Be sure to tie your locker key to your wrist or swimsuit, since it's a $20 fee if you... More

We cam here as part of a trip to Chichen Itza. There is a mound on the site, which is a building from the old city - this site is about 2 km from the main central site. We had an included lunch in the restaurant, which was OK, but not brilliant. The swim in the cenote was great, though.... More
