Xel-Ha Natural wonder awaits you!

Xel-Ha is simply unique!

Xel-Ha is one of the world's most beautiful, natural aquariums. And it's all inclusive too!!!

Swim and snorkel surrounded by rainbow colored fish who have made the river and inlet their home, take long walks in the middle of the jungle, ride a bike, take the train or just relax while enjoying the lazy river! All these activities are included too!

If you want to learn to snorkel, this is the place to go. This is a full day of fun. There are lockers to put your belongings, the food and drink is included with admission. There are all sorts of animal encounters for an extra charge. We didn't do them but really had fun anyway. They also have a speedboat... More

What a great day! Snorkeling down the river where you can stop and cliff dive and zip line into the water. The bike zip line is not to be missed. You sit on a "bike' on the zip line cables and traverse above the tree line and really get to see parts of the park that are not accessible by... More

Believe the hype! This place is flat out amazing!! It looks like the pictures, the park is huge and the food and drinks are included. Me and my wife had one of the most fun days ever at Xel-Ha. Disneyland takes a back seat to this park! 10 out of 10! Don't think about it just go, you'll thank me... More

This is one of my favourite places that I have ever visited. It's stunning and the way they have turned it into fun and adventure while keeping it natural is ideal. At times you feel like the only ones there, floating or snorkelling down the mangrove covered canals, jumping off cliffs, riding bicycles or trying one of the many extra... More

My boyfriend and I adored our day at Xel-Ha. I would 100% go back if I could one day! We arrived in the park early through the coach pick up which meant we were lucky enough to go straight down the river when it was very quiet. I'd recommend going straight to the start of the river as it gets... More

Xel-Ha is my favorite excursion when I'm in the Riviera Maya. This was my third visit, and it just keeps getting better. They have added a LOT of activities since I was here last. There are tons of things for you to do all day, so the steep entry fee is really worth it. Of course admission includes snorkeling AND... More

I did enjoy xel.ha the water is amazing and with all food and drink being included makes it very easy. We were just unaware of how many 'extras' were not included in the cost. What's included: - all food and drinks (alcohol) - snorkeling equipment - zip lines - cliff jump - bikes All other activities are at a steep... More

My husband, myself and our 13 year old son visited on May 9th. We had an amazing day. We headed to the river run first, and then snorkelled around the areas. It was a full day and we still didn't try all the different activities offered. The breakfast, lunch and free beverages were great. If we go back to the... More
