Lovely atmosphere - busy but everyone encouraging the jumpers to jump! I would suggest renting the life jackets $2 as it is hard to hold onto the middle rope - you have to kind of stand on it! Otherwise you have to keep swimming. We had a 2hr stop - I had thought it would be too Long but after a buffet and ice cream it was time to go!

I was mesmerized by the shear scale of if walking down some stairs then it opening up into what I saw. Swinging into the water was amazing and the water was so cool and refreshing would definitely recommend to others

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.
