Transportation from Chichen Itza to Cenote Ik kil ?

We are planning to visit Chichen Itza in June and would also like to visit Cenote Ik kil while we are in the area. How far are they from each other? Is it walking distance? Are there taxis or collectivos available? Maybe bicycle rentals? Any input would be appreciated. Also wondering about cheap eats near the ruins, any suggestions? Thanks

Ik Kil is within walking distance but only along a dangerous highway with no shoulder. There usually are plenty of cabs at the Chichen Itza entrance that would be happy to pick you up and make the short drive to get there.

Have a great trip!

That's what we did, took a cab June 08; it was inexpensive (under $8) and a short trip. Be aware you have to pay approx. $6 pp to get in to swim at the cenote. They also offer a buffet (if you like buffet food) for about $15 pp plus drinks. They also have lockers for a fee.

We're going this June ourselves, but might try a different cenote, just to see more! We're also combining CI with Ek Balam and a restaurant in Valladolid (which we did last time).

Have fun!
