The cenote is beautiful, no doubt. The entrance costs 80 pesos (which is a fair price compared to others) and it’s not too far from chicken itza - you can do both in the same day if you have a car. However, I recommend going...More

Good infrastructure and food. The cenote is beautiful but it is not for snorkeling - it is dark and there is almost no life. It is a traditional destination to those who visit Chichen Itza, so it can be packed with tourists.

Part of the Chichen Itza archaeological site. Cenote itself is a magical place, unfortunately the basin is full of swimming people all the time.

Beautiful place, lots of tiny fish and overall a great place to visit! This was part of a Chichén Itzá tour.

This place is amazing! It is so amazing that even hundreds of other tourists don’t ruin the experience. Just be careful of a few things... We went to Chichen Itza first and were stopped a few times on the way by very “official” looking people....More

We stopped off at Ik Kil whilst on a pyramid tour, booked through Viatours. The cenote is stunning. Viewing platforms allow non-swimmers to take great photos and watch the fun. But I would certainly recommend getting in the water - so refreshing!
