For swimmers or those who love the spectacular creations of nature in the Yucatan, Il Kil is indeed awesome. Met a bunch of Uranians there and other Europeans there. This is a place where you have a variety of diving options or can just enjoy the cool refreshing fresh water on a hot day. Cool off, chill, and imagine yourself in an Indiana Jones movie set. But, do be careful. Don't slip an fall. Watch the younger kids. And try not to drown (no worries, really). But try not to do something stupid and ruin your vacation.

The Ik Kil Cenote visit is best visited without a tour in my opinion, and early in the morning on your own, so that there are fewer people and you can really enjoy it! We used a tour bus & arrived around 1pm, and it was packed filled with people so we didn't really get to enjoy the serenity & beauty of the place... Still a very beautiful place with great picture opportunities & a good swim though you will feel like packed sardines in the pool...

Unique experience but so crowded fully packed of people and some mean tourists pushing other people.

It is about 6 kilometers from Chichen Itza. Very good cenote. It is a part of a hotel but I suppose it is open to the general tourists as well.
Great place to take a dive in and enjoy the swim. There are showers and changing rooms just a few steps from the entrance from where you can also get the life jackets in case you don't know how to swim or just want to be safe. The cenote is about three levels down. There are three levels to take a dive - the first one isn't actually much of a dive (just stepping down from the ladder into the water) but the second and third ones are at two different heights. So, someone enjoying the dives would enjoy it here.
There is some parking space outside and a restaurant for refreshments. Overall, a great place to enjoy cenotes that this area is famous for.

This place was one of the unexpected highlights of our trip. The beauty is amazing as is the darkness of the extremely deep fresh water. Jump off the rocks into the water to enhance your experience. I did it and I'm 59. Float on you back and feel the peace of the place. I didn't use a floation vest but I'm a confident swimmer. Do yourself a favour. A wonderful way to cool off.
