Ik Kil (lugar de los vientos) (place of the winds) is a well known cenote outside Pisté in the Tinúm Municipality, Yucatán, Mexico. It is located in the northern center of the Yucatán Peninsula and is part of the Ik Kil Archeological Park near Chichen Itza. It is open to the public for swimming and is the perfect place to cool off after visiting chichen itza.

The cenote is open to the sky with the water level about 26 metres (85 ft) below ground level. There is a carved stairway down to a swimming platform. The cenote is about 60 metres (200 ft) in diameter and about 40 metres (130 ft) deep.[1] There are vines which reach from the opening all the way down to the water along with small waterfalls. There are black catfish which swim in the cenote. Cenote Ik Kil is sacred to the Mayans and the Mayans used this cenote for both relaxation and ritual services.

Cenote zacil-ha
This cenote is about 10 ft. deep and the overall size is not huge, so plan on going when there is not going to be a crowd. That means Sundays are usually a bad time to go as families visit cenotes on that day off.

At the one end of the cenote the water is deep blue. This is actually a cave and this cenote is linked with other cenotes nearby. All part of the amazing Yucatecan eco system. Speaking of eco system, check out the birds here. The one photo above shows lovely blue birds that were fluttering around the cenote. There were hanging birds nest in the trees as well as yellow feathered birds in flight above.
