This was a great place to spend your anniversary. The buffet lunch was good. They have lockers and life vests that you can rent. There was a lot of people there however they were all there to have fun. When someone was up to jump in the water and they looked as if they were scared everyone cheered them on... More

On a warm 30 degree day, this was "just what the Doctor ordered". A bustling facility, with elbow to elbow crowds up in the surface, once we descended the "90 odd" (at your own risk - you've just got to love Mexico's attitude) rough and slippery steps, we found the air temperature to be at least 5 degrees cooler. The... More

We went there after having seen Chichen Itza, and we had a very refreshing dip in the cool and clean water ind the special surroundings. Very good experience even though one of our towels were stolen by other tourists.

So I was on TA and asking people for suggestions on cenotes and I know its hard but there are really SO many to choose from. It's difficult to really judge these based on commercialism or pure nature because there are pros and cons to both. I think Ik-Kil has the perfect ratio to both. Its underground but has plenty...

Awesome site. Was a little apprehensive at first,but so glad I did it. Amazing site. You can rent life vests and lockers. There are bathrooms and change rooms. A lot of stairs. Take your water shoes. Water is cool, but not cold. Very refreshing.

A great way to cool off after a hot few hours of sightseeing the nearby ruins. Rent the life jacket..its SO worth it to be able to float around and not have to tread water. Give yourself 20 minutes or so to cool off and stare at how cool it really is. Not a place you will spend more than... More
