Really couldn't wait to dip in after Chichen Itza. Unfortunately it was way too crowded for my liking at the time with many teenagers jumping in and out and sitting on the ladders. Still went down to take pictures and it was great. Those 90 steps aren't too bad at all.
Basically, this involves getting changed, washing off suntan lotion, then climbing down 90 odd steps to get in a queue that climbs to a higher area. Then, you jump off into this deep cool Cenote. That's about it. I only did it because it was included in the Chichen-Itza tour package. I wouldn't have been willing to pay seperately for... 更多
I really loved going for a swim here. The place is really beautiful with the vines hanging down and the sun coming down into the sink hole. There are little fish swimming around in the water which is fun. In addition there is a path round the side which you can jump off into the water. From a practical point... 更多
It looks like an old sink hole filled with water with built in park around it. You have a chance to dive and swim in the lake thats indie, and its quite amazing and fun. After reading more about this place we found out that this pit was used for human sacrifice by the Mayans and supposedly contains artifacts and... 更多
The water in this cenote (sink hole) is about 22 degrees celsius and very comfortable. There are lockers, towels for rent (deposit of $8.50 USD), life jackets for rent, showers, change rooms and a lot of wet steps to get down to the water. This was so much fun! There are a few places to dive off of because the... 更多
Our chance to swim in Ik Kil was magical... literally unlike anything I've ever seen. Water can be a bit chilly but really not bad at all, felt great after a long day in the sun. I highly recommend you take the opportunity to swim in a cenote.
It is a natural pool. We wore life jackets and swam in the water for about 30min. The water temperature was comfortable, feels like 60-70 F. Many kids were jumping into the water that should also be a fun.
When we think of a sinkhole (cenote), we think of something that houses in Florida and other places fall into from time to time. We never imagine walking down a mountain of stairs into a place filled with natural water to swim in. What a unique experience! If your tour to Chitzen Itza does not include a stop at the... 更多
Arrived in early afternoon and lots of people here. They have lockers and life jackets for rent if you wish. Many families here with young children too. You are able to just take a swim or jump from a 25 foot platform. The water is crystal clear and there are many fish swimming around you. Worth the visit!
Did this after chichen itza with our tour group. It was packed and loud, but that couldn't completely deter from the natural beauty. It was incredibly refreshing and relaxing when you could find a quiet spot to float and look at the sky. My friend got a little claustrophobic near the entrance because of all the people, but if you're... 更多
Having never been to a cenote, I was unsure what to expect from visiting a sinkhole. The cenote Ik Kil is great place to stop on your way to Xichen Itza. The facilities cater to large groups and swimming in the cenote was great. Our tour buffet was a little disappointing as it was a not great attempt at appealing... 更多
This is a very unique experience and despite the crowds (and losing my gopro in the water), it was a memorable experience. As another reviewer suggested, go early, and without a tour group if possible - then you can spend a bit more time. We went with a tour group and the place was crowded, which was frustrating because a... 更多
Me and my boyfriend hit this place after going to Chichen Itza.Tip right off the bat: if you go to Chichen Itza, get your tickets there for this Cenote, you will save about 6 USD per person. We were glad we did when we saw the price at the entrance which was close to $15 USD per person. We got... 更多
It's amazing how mother nature makes us feel so insignificant, when you behold one of its marvels. The Cenote is a massive hole in the ground and at the very bottom of this hole, lies a body of water that is connected to various surrounding rivers. The bottom of this hole is accessible by stairs and you can take a... 更多
