Took ourselves here after chichen itza and it was so refreshing. There are lockers to look your bag and clothes in and the water was cool and clean. There are life jackets available to hire for those that need it but there are ropes in the water for you to hold onto as well if needed. Definitely worth a visit

Great place to visit after a hot and humid day of exploring chichenitza Mayan ruins!
The fresh water is great and the cenote May seem crowded but there’s enough room for everyone since it’s really big.
FYI on the way to chichenitza if you’re driving your own car, they will try to stop you and try to sell you other tours and stuff by telling you that this cenote is really expensive (they told us it cost $800 pesos per person, LOL) don’t listen to them! When you get to the cenote the entrance is only $80 pesos and it’s worth it!

Went to the Cenote Ik Kil right after visiting Chichen-itza. After being out in the heat for a couple hours the Cenote was just the thing. If you like to jump in from a height then you can jump or dive from about 20-30 feet up. If that isn't your thing then just jump in from about 3-5 feet. The water is about 150 feet deep and yet not too cold. The setting is beautiful with the vegetation all around. There are viewing points as well so you can watch your friends and loved ones if you aren't interested in swimming yourself. They offer Life vests as well which a lot of people took advantage of. The only negative I have is that there were ALOT of people there and I personally kicked 2-3 while trying to get to the ladder, even though I tried hard to be careful. If you are a good swimmer there are many places you can go that are relatively empty of people as they tend to hang out close to the exit ladders.

This cenote is very close to Chichen-itza so it makes a very good stop to refresh after visiting the ruins.

The site is well adapted for tourists.. there are showers, lockers and changing rooms.
The cenote is impressive and there is a diving area where there is a life-guard watching and organizing the people who want to jump.

We had a blast in this place, I really recommend the stop here.

Amazing place. Definitely recommend visiting if you're in the area. It was an indescribable feeling I had when I was floating on my back looking up into the beautiful blue sky and the greenary around the opening of the xenote. We went there as a combination tour with Chichen Itza. Got there around 11:45am with All the other tourist buses. Luckily we were there first so it was not as crowded at first. Definitely got much worse later. I'd say drive yourself and get there well before noon. Highly recommend either bringing or renting a life jacket.They were only $2 to rent. The xenote is very deep, 50meters, and it's very cold fresh water of course. So it's hard to swim for a long period of time without getting completely exhausted. There are some ropes and a couple of balloons floating but everyone else is trying to grab onto them. My husband didn't get a jacket and was having a real hard time swimming, and he's a good swimmer. Honestly, I kept thinking if anyone were to go under, no one would notice in the crowds and the commotion. So don't be stubborn. GET THE JACKET! You can also rent a locker for $2. There are large bathrooms and changing rooms. You have to rinse off before going in to protect the environment from chemicals. This is great but not sure how a quick rinse with cold water in a public place and with your swim suit on is going to clean off lotions and sunscreens. The food was terrible.
