What is the Chichen Itza Cenote?

Though not actually on the complex of Chichen Itza, Cenote Ik Kil often gets call the Chichen Itza Cenote because it is so close. I definitely recommend visiting a few cenotes.

Located at the northern end of Chichen Itza, this cenote is the site of age-old human sacrifice. Dredged by archaeologists in the 1900s, a host of evidence was found here, including artifacts made from gold, precious stones like turquoise and jade, as well as human remains.
