Ik Kil was included into the tour package, so I was there not at the best time, though not at the worst, either. There weren’t too many people at the time, though arrival of a very rowdy group of Russian tourists made it seem much more crowded. Being not a great swimmer, I first went to investigate and immediately realised that the place is definitely not for me, even with a life jacket. The edges are steep and high, the water is immediately deep and there are only very slippery and rickety wooden stairs looking to get in (if not jumping) or out. The swimming safety is entirely in the swimmers hands, as it is clearly stated in the information board, even though there are safeguards there.
So, I had a good look at it and went to investigate surroundings which were nice. The cenote itself is also very beautiful, even breathtaking. For swimming, however, I would choose another cenote.

This large cenote is well worth a visit. It is very large, and it is some 80 feet below ground level. The water was not crystal clear, but not too cold either. There are changing rooms and restrooms and outdoor showers on site. Wooden entry ladders and exit ladders are there, but to enter, just jump off the cement area. There is also a higher jumping off area for those needing a bigger thrill.

This was nothing like what we were promised. There were SO, SO, SO MANY people there, with almost zero safety and security. No one monitoring anything, kids running everywhere, drunk people diving into deep water. It was awful. I tried to take a quick swim, and was shoved into the water by a male tourist, then blocked by another guy, and almost pushed under. Again, no one there to help. On top of all that, I ended up with a weird rash from the water. Go literally anywhere else.

We visited this after a visit to the ruins which was great because it cooled us off. It’s is also located just down the road!
It’s beautiful!! The kids 8 and 11 loved it, so did the adults!! Only thing is it was crowded! And it about 95 steps below ground!! There is a ledge you can jump off which ...it’s high! But everyone love it!!

We didn’t expect what we saw. It was really far from something natural; the bad administration of the place (administrated by a private company that clearly doesn’t care about both nature and Mexican culture) and the bad kind of tourism that arrives constantly there (thousand of buses full of twenty years old kids that just want to party) make this place a nightmare. It feels completely artificial and dangerous (it is terribly overcrowded and they don’t have any kind of control over that). It’s a pity they destroyed a place like this just to make lots of money that will not end in local people hands. NOT WORTH IT TO VISIT.
