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.

Everything was extremely organized from the hotel pick up, to the transfer station, to the drop off, and pick up. The tour bus drivers were safe and the tour guide (Angelica) was articulate and detailed.

The day started in a tropical down pour. What a bummer on vacation when it rains. But once in the park, personal items secured in a lockers, from the Zip Bikes to the Dolphin experience, we have an amazing time at Xel-Ha.

So many activities to choose from. Never far from a restroom, restaurant, bar or shower. Plenty of place to sit for a rest. Easy to navigate the park.

So much fun and so much to do. The only thing is that we did not know the drive there would take over 2 hours. The bus ride is picking up a bunch of people including you and driving you to the park and then the same case driving you back home… bring head phones and a full battery. Other than that the park was so much fun lots of amazing pictures you can take and the water is beautiful!!
