This is perfect place for swimming in the clear blue water. This natural swimming pool is 196 feet wide and about 130 feet deep, it is an open cenote about 85 feet from the surface. The Mayan Pool is popular tourist destination. The pool was used by Red bull to host their Cliff Diving World Series in 2012. Participants from around the world came there and experienced the thrilling adventure. Here are some more photos: http://www.worldfortravel.com/2013/06/27/ik-kil-cenote-narural-pool-of-mexico/

Ik Kil Cenote is stunning. Try to get there before the crowds but usually there are a lot of people watching so there is enough space to swim. Climb the stairs if you dare and do "mayan suicide" jump into the water. Give yourself enough time to really enjoy this natural wonder.Recommended for:

Located near Chichen Itza, the Ik Kil Cenote complex is a wonderful experience with swimming opportunity in a pristine semi open cenote where little fishies swim next to you, where nature waterfall hit above your head, and where for the daring, the Mayan suicide jump into the cool water is offered. The facilities here are very clean and the restaurant and bar provides good breaks for replenishments between or before/after swims.

So gorgeous, like something out of time.
90 steps take you down to this beautiful sinkhole, that boasts depths of 50M (so our guide told us), and thousands of black, blind catfish, float about as you swim. Birds chirp overhead, and sensuous flora line the walls, as vines fall from above, to complete the lovely scene.
There is a 20 foot jump, that is definitely a must. There are also decent facilities for changing, and showering pre-swim (to get the sunblock and oils off your skin before entering the pristine water).
A must, if you're headed to Chichen Itza
