One of the best things we did on our trip to Mexico was visit the Ik Kil Cenote near Chichen Itza. This cenote was crammed with tourists, but we didn’t mind too much. After the hot day in Chichen Itza, we loved coming here. I would highly suggest going to Chichen Itza first, then coming here to get wet and cool off.
Ik Kil is a cenote, or a natural pit, or sinkhole that you can swim in! Located in the northern center of the Yucatán Peninsula, this cenote is part of the Ik Kil Archeological Park near Chichen Itza, is open to the public for swimming, and costs just 80 pesos to enter.
