The Basics

Swim through underground rivers, dive into a cenote, traverse a floating bridge, and snorkel in lagoons filled with tropical fish, sea turtles, and manatees. On land, you can zipline above the canopy, rock climb, bike, or stroll through the jungle.

Day trips to Xel-Ha typically leave from Cancun, Playa del Carmen, and the Riviera Maya, with some combining Xel-Ha and a stop in nearby Tulum. Xel-Ha is part of a network of related parks and experiences, including Xcaret, Xplor, Xplor Fuego, Xenotes Oasis Maya, Xoximilco Cancun, Xichen, and Xenses. It’s possible to book packages that include admission to multiple parks.

Xelha was a wonderful place. Traveled with 4 teens and everyone had so much fun! Definitely worth the trip but prepare for a full day as it is 2 hours each way from Cancun.

100% recommend going here! There is a bunch of fun extras That cost money but I would recommend adding them on. The food and drink basically pays for the whole ticket and really decent food for a buffet. I could live on the lazy River and the trails on the north side of the park Are amazing

Very fun! But be prepared for paying for extra fun activities

Xel-Há Park All-Inclusive Admission Ticket
We all had a great time at the park everyone very friendly & welcoming. Having to find our own ride was a pain. But it worked out.. luckily but cost more. Snorkeling was fun but not crystal clear waters & not as many fish as I thought there would be. One day is not enough to do everything. Many of the activities are extra money. So be prepared for that.

Xel ha Park Tour All inclusive
Second time to Xel-Ha and was not disappointed. It is a natural water park amongst mangroves and zip lines, food and manatees. Worth the money and the time to get there. You’ll need a full day to experience it. I would not recommend combining it with another tour. What I would recommend is WATER SHOEs and a long sleeve sun shirt. Trust me if it’s summer in Mexico the sun is relentless. Overall it is a place special unto itself with no compare in the United States. Try it you’ll maybe be back too for a second time like me. But now you know what I didn’t at the time. WATER Shoes and sun shirts!

The snorkeling and the lazy river were just right for me, my husband and kids enjoyed the adrenalina boat ride and the power snorkel and had such a great time. Will definitely do again😁
