Create an itinerary including Cenote Ik kil
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.

  • Lots of people but easy to walk down. You must wear life jackets. Free lockers. Plenty of clean bathroom stalls and changing rooms. Delicious homemade ice pops.
