Amazing!

This place was extremely amazing! It was exactly like the pictures. The water was super cold after a long, hot day. We enjoyed it immensely!!!

Visited this cenote after a trip to the ruins which was a welcome cool down in the August heat. This cenote is much more commercial than others we had visited and was extremely busy with tourists. Would recommend going first thing in the morning if you wanted a quieter more "natural" experience. That being said, it was gorgeous if you... More

Great experience! Wife doest swim however life vests are cheap to rent 30 mex pesos and she jumped right in. With life vests you don't have to tread water. Great cold fresh water with a raised platform to jump on from. Black cat fish swim around you as your in the water which is nice. Lifeguards on standby if needed.... More

We were on our honeymoon at the Riviera Maya and we took a tour to Chichen-Itza. We stopped at Park Ik Kil which is a cenote where you can swim. Even though I have been in several Maya ruins, swimming in a cenote was a unique experience. 100% recommended.

It was unbelievable beautiful to swim in this cenote! I would definitely recommend it. But it can get quite crowded later in the day. So go early!

We got there at 10:30am - perfect timing for the first sunlight to get into the cenote, for them to turn on the pumps that cause the waterfalls and for us to get a swim almost on our own. Nice clear water. Impressive to look at. Nice :)

I'm glad that we went to this cenote after all the hype regarding it but it really is too crowded. You should avoid it if you are not a good swimmer and if you don't want to jump from its high ledge. Our family loves the water and enjoyed jumping (again and again with the go-pro). The bottom of the... More

Have returned here three times and consider it one of the most beautiful natural formations I have ever seen! It is a must see if you are in Chichen Itza, MX. I would return again and again given the opportunity! I can't put an accurate date in the pull down!

Swimming in the Cenote was amazing! Water very fresh, lots of fish and incredible view when you look up. Lunch at the buffet was great too.

Just visited there today with the Experiencias Xcaret tour. The cenote was clean, uniquely beautiful, fun and the facilities were very well kept and organized.
