The Ik Kil Cenote is located a little under two miles from the famed Chichen Itza ruins. Like the 6,000 other cenotes across the Yucatan peninsula, Ik Kil has majestic charectieristics where the sunlight from 85 feet above filters through holes in the ground and vegetation. Known as ?the Sacred Blue Cenote?, the fresh water is an intriguing clear turquoise blue and hovers at a comfortable 78 degrees Fahrenheit.
Ik Kil offers a dizzying array of scenry in addition to the gorgeous watering hole. Emerald green vines and plants decorate the area as well as picturesque waterfalls to explore. The stalactites and stalagmites that have formed over the past million years are breath taking and great care should be taken during your visit.
