How to take a swim in Cenote Ik Kil in Cancun
Cenote Ik Kil is an unusual natural cave. A lake formed at its bottom and you can take a bath in it! There is no gently sloping approach to the water, so there are special wooden ladders into the water for the swimmers' convenience. The lake is quite warm; the water temperature is around 23ºС.

Tips and hints

bear in mind that the rules of Cenote Ik Kul require that the visitors take a mandatory shower before bathing. It is necessary to rinse off creams and lotions to keep the water in the cenote clean. Bring with you only the most necessary items: a swimsuit and a towel, then you won't have to rent a lock in the lockers.

If your swimming skills leave much to be desired, it is better to rent a life vest to feel safer. And if the water is your element, then take the risk of jumping off the 25-meter high ledge of the well. You can make a photo and video record of your feat in this unique place.
