Swim in sacred Mayan waters at Cenote Ik kil, a naturally formed water basin, 60 m (200 ft) in diameter and located 26 m (85 ft) below ground level. Twinkling, clear waters fill the pool, decorated by hanging vines cascading from the treetops above. Step down the ornately carved limestone stairway to reach the swimming platform, where refreshing 35 m (114.8 ft) deep waters await. Keep your eyes out for the shoal of black catfish that call the cenote their home--don’t worry, they don’t bite. When you’re feeling rejuvenated, enjoy a bite to eat at one of the surrounding restaurants. Arrange to visit Cenote Ik kil and other attractions in Chichen Itza using our Chichen Itza trip planner.

when in Yucatan,Mexico ,look for the cenotes.
I’m not one to write a review for anything but WOW. I went into this tour with lower expectations as pictures are almost always an exaggeration but IT’S NOT! This Cenote is amazing, the second you walk in - it’s breath taking and the pictures don’t even do it justice. I HIGHLY recommend if you’re looking for that picture perfect experience, and are a good swimmer - I can not recommend enough!
