Swimming in Cenote Ixtlan
Swimming in Cenote Ixtlan is a great experience. The cave is open on one end and the water slopes into the cave. The water is only ankle deep at the edge and then gets deep enough to swim in. It looks like a bank of sand when you enter but this is silt from the cenote. The bottom is also mostly soft like sand.
At Cenote Ixtlan they have flashlights and snorkels so you can see the underwater formations and entrances to the underground river system.
Dinning at Cenote Ixtlan
Part of your private tour includes a meal. Some of the meals include local cochinita pibil (a Mayan dish of pulled pork) or they can grill hamburgers.
The huge wood table sits just by the entrance of Cenote Ixtlan. This is a beautiful setting for a meal and really relaxing.
Below is the ample spread of cochinita pibil with guacamole, rice, cheese, chopped onion, tortillas, and chips.
