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

My husband and I were so lucky to experience Ik Kil about 4 years ago. Truly magical. I am so glad that I did my research before we planned our trip to Isla Mujeres. so that we could add it into our trip. We added it on to the last day of checkout of our timeshare in Isla. Mujeres, took... More

I visited this place back in May. I was on a day trip to Chichen Itza. I felt as though the tour operator was trying to cram as much into the tour as possible so they extract the maximum amount of cash from us as possible. This place was good to visit....but I felt we stopped there for far longer... More

We went to this Park on our way to Chichen Itza its a must , the water hole amazing and swam in the water felt fantastic after being in the heat , all the people going into the water must have shower before entering to keep it clean and fresh.

I can still see this with my eyes closed! It was one of the most beautiful things I have seen that nature created. It is a large open cenote, when standing above on the rim looking down the people below seem smaller. The sun shines down into the water with beautiful vines and plants cascading into the opening. The water... More

Was worth the trip. My daughter and I swam, and jumped off the cliff. I floated on my back, gazing up at the sun, the vines and the scenic walls - was surreal. I recommend for anyone able to make the walk, and if you are able to swim, get in the water. Only warning is for those with limited... More
