We were a group of 7 middle aged adults with teenage kids. Everyone loved it. Suggest arriving early as theres lots to do. A bit pricey, but it does include all you can eat and drink. Clean park fun attractions. Drifting down the lazy river was great. The kids loved the zip line and the lighthouse water slides were awesome.

There is something for everyone at Xel-ha. Although the park was crowded during our visit (over spring break) there is plenty of room for everyone to explore. I loved the scenic inlet with the snorkeling and tubes. There are multiple restaurants featuring one of the most extensive buffets we've seen. We also enjoyed that the price of admission included everything you need for the day (with exception of a few attractions). Towels, food, drinks, gear, lockers, etc. all included. This made for a more relaxing day. We recommend a full day at the park in order to take advantage of all the attractions.

Tip: Do the waterslide first thing in the morning, the wait in the afternoon was more than an hour from the entrance of the slide to the top. Also, water shoes are helpful. The path/cement trails around the park get very slippery and hot.

Spent an amazing day here and it’s simply an amazing place. You really have to see it to believe it. It’s so nice coming down the river and when they let the parrots go wow .......
You get a locker to put your stuff in at the start of the day which is great. No need to bring snorkelling gear as they give you some. I would recommend this as the sights are amazing. There is just so much to see and do here is fantastic.

We went with a group of 10 of us. We'd planned to start at the river ride end first which in hind site we wish we didn't take the goggles and flippers as it was a pain to carry them all day to only use them a little at the end. Kids loved the river ride, cliff jumping and zip lining. Let down about the snorkeling and cave. This is not where I'd go for that. The lighthouse waterslide is also a major line and concerning if going down #4. I saw several people panic when they came off scrambling to get up. Also, found the paths to be incredibly slippery. Lots of walking which we'd already done enough of as well. Remember all your items go in a locker.
