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 .

Сенот Ик-Киль, в переводе с языка майя – это "место, где рождается ветер". На полуострове Юкатан таких сенотов очень много. Это один из красивейших. Вода действительно прохладная и это приятно в жарку... more »The Xenot Ik-Kiel, translated from the Mayan language, is "the place where the wind is born." There are a lot of such cesoons on the Yucatan Peninsula. This is one of the most beautiful. The water is really cool and it's nice in hot weather. From above come down beautiful vines, nearby swim fish. One fact is embarrassing: according to legend, the Mayan Indians considered cenotas the gateway to the realms of the dead and served as their place of sacrifice. So that decide to swim yourself or just look at this is not an ordinary place.
Great place for those who want to go swimming in cenotes. They have a raised place from where people can dive in. Organized and awesome experience. Restrooms need a lot of work. Modern but mostly dysfunctional. At least the men's restrooms are Didn't try the buffet but it was 180$. Should be worth the money for those willing to try it. We went to the snack bar. Sandwiches were huge but bland. But then that's how club sandwiches are. The chicken tacos were disappointingly bland. Had to eat eat bite with jalapenos. Mojito wasn't any good either. Barely any alcohol, if it had any, and was just like drinking a virgin drink. The service from the staff was good.
One of my favorite cenotes!! Great location, restaurant for after good food, and great price! Entrance only couple dollars.
