The Chichen Itza Cenote in Mexico

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.
