Usually tour to Chichen Itza ends with a quick visit to IK KIL Cenote. It was nice to soak in the cool water after a hot day touring Chichen Itza. Only criticism was so many tourists!! You can’t even swim in the cenote because all...More

The water is super refreshing, and very cold. Just do yourself a favor and jump in from the stairs, it was exhilarating. My three children, ages 8, 6, 4 all jumped in as well. They said it was the best part of their day. if...More

By far one our favourite cenotes. Stunning gardens on the way to it through the wide laneways of the attached hotel. Security and staff discreetly on site. Great photo spots on the walk down, and the water is simply gorgeous. Couples, families, backpackers and other...More

Really beautiful but way toooo crowded - I'd find a less touristy cenote next time. Expect to pay for the parking and entrance. Also you'll have to shower before diving in. Lots of stairs down to it.

We visited this cenote right after our visit to Chichen Itza. CI displayed the power of man, and Cenote Ik Kil displayed the power of nature. The size and depth of the cenote was simply breathtaking. Highly recommended to visit.

The cenote Ik Kil is a must see in Mexico! Be sure to bring a bathing suit for swimming in the fresh crystal clear water!

We drove an extra 3hrs from Coba to Ik Kil because we didn't want to miss out on this Cenote & Chichen Itza and it really wasn't worth it. Ik Kil is beautiful looking from above and walking down the steps into the Cenote. There...More

Such a beautiful cenote! Daring people can jump from the platform, everyone else can tentatively climb in via the ladders. You can choose to wear life vests but not mandatory. There are ropes across the cenote in different parts to guide you or just to...More
