Ik Kil Cenote - Keep Calm and Wander

The wonderful cenote Ik Kil in Mexico will never fail to stun you. We arrived around 10:30 in the morning and the parking lot was still almost empty. Yes, we were one of the few who arrived before tour buses came in droves. No, we didn’t join one of those tours because we’re too fabulous to be in crowded buses. 😀 😀 😀 (Scroll down below if you wanna know how we got there.)

What is a cenote?

Cenotes are unique to Mexico, especially in the Yucatan State. They are natural wells surrounded by rocks. Most often they serve as the mouth of an underground river or a cave. They’re also good for snorkeling and diving.

Travel Tips:

Most bus tours to Chichen Itza do not include this in their itinerary. Only few do this. Even the tour agents in our hotel don’t combine this with Chichen Itza Pyramid Tour. However, most Cenote Ik Kil Tour is combined with some other unknown Mayan ruins in the Yucatan Peninsula.

If you’re renting a car or on your own, be sure to get here between 9:00 to 10:00 in the morning. This should be your first itinerary of the day if you want to avoid the crowd. The famed Chichen Itza Pyramid is just 5 minutes drive from here.
