What an absolutely beautiful place! Having the opportunity to swim in this gorgeous cenote was absolutely wonderful. My only reason for not giving it a 5-star review is that the renting of lockers and other items was quite disorganized. If they could somehow better manage that issue, the experience would be absolute 5-star!

The swimming itself was wonderful! The water is on the cold side, a little shocking right when you jump in, but once you are used to it, it's really refreshing. You can jump in from the side or you can go up higher and do a big jump in! Getting out is a bit of a challenge, with lots of people hanging around the ladders and kind of fighting for their turn.

I'd recommend renting a life jacket, even if you know how to swim, as that will allow you to just float around and not worry about treading water or finding a place to hold on to the sides if your arms are getting tired. I'd also recommend some kind of water shoe, as you will have to walk down a number of slippery and somewhat uneven stairs to get to the swimming area.

Beautiful day overall!

We got here early before a lot of the crowds. On a previous trip I went as part of a larger tour and it was extremely crowded which affected my enjoyment. This time it was great, not many people in the water and much quieter which really let us soak up the atmosphere.

It's a beautiful setting with blue sky, green vines hanging down the side and the gentle sounds of falling water. We just floated and relaxed and really enjoyed it.

The facilities are fairly basic but serviceable.

Definitely would go back but early to avoid the crowds. Wouldn't go back when it was crowded.

I was just blown away by the natural beauty of this place. Yes, it was crowded with many people but definitely still worth it. One of my favourite places on the Riviera Maya

This place is very nice! Of course there is a lot of people but the way the cenote is, is very impressive.
Lockers are available for you to put your stuff and get down to the water.
You have quite few steps to get down so if you are in wheelchair it won’t work.
Once your down, there’s a lot of people but you can still make your way inside. It’s impressive too from the water!

Went to Cenote Ik Kil right after my visit at chichen itza, was there about 11am and was very pleasant, not so many people. My personal suggestion would be to go there first in the morning before going to Chichen Itza as the big tour busses all going there after and it gets full about lunch time. best time 09am - 11am, So go to the Cenote first to really enjoy your time and go to Chichen Itza after which is full anyway, if morning or lunch is the same busy. All in all I loved it and this swim is great
