Ik Kil is a beautiful round cenote in the Ik Kil Archeological Park near Chichen Itza. The cenote is about 60 metres (200 ft) in diameter and about 40 metres (130 ft) deep. The water is crystal clear and perfect for swimming and snorkeling.
Vines are hanging from the opening all the way down to the water and small waterfalls are dropping alongside. A stairway carved into limestone leads you to the water that is around 35 meters deep.
The cenote can be crowded with swimmers so maybe better not to expect a private experience. Ik Kil was a stop on the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series in 2010 and 2011.
Ik Kil is located very near (about 2,6 miles) to the popular attraction Chichen Itza so when planning your trip to Chichen Itza, it is a good idea to visit Ik Kil at the same time. Also the tour operators often combine Ik Kil with Chichen Itza.
Organized tours are perhaps the easiest way to reach Ik Kil. Th There are many tour operators for example in Cacnun.
The cenote is also easily reachable by car if you happen to have that option.
