Ikkil Cenote

At the cenote you descend a stone staircase that allows you to stand at different heights of this great water well (dzonot in Yucatec Mayan). There is a jump from 5 meters that delights those of us who like to jump. The cenotes at the end are beautiful playgrounds. For professionals, in the Ik kil cenote, diving championships of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series competition have been held, you better see it. They jump from 27 meters.

For those who do not go on an organized excursion try to avoid the hours of greatest tourist influx, from 11 to 15: 30. In fact I explain something that will allow you to visit Ik kil alone: They open at 9 in the morning, but if you show up at the door at 8: 30 and ask questions in a pleasant way if you can enter, I'm sure they will leave you. For me it was a luxury to see the cenote Ik kil for an hour alone, a gift that I will always remember.
