So much to do and see here and is fun for all ages, never been to anywhere like it before. Great price as it includes all your food and drinks, wish... More

What an amazing place to visit. Highly recommend the dolphin experience. Here I had an interactive swim with two dolphins including the amazing ''Superman push''. Brilliant fun and great for adults and kids alike! The park itself is massive and will take a whole day exploring. You are surrounded by wildlife which is a great experience in itself. There are...

Truly an amazing place that fulfills every expectation and pleases all age groups. I will definitely be going back. Breakfast Buffet is simple but delicious and lunch has an awesome delicious selection with true mexican music playing out of a jukebox. Lets not forget the dolphins, parrots, iguanas, and all the tropical fish troughout the Xelha experience.

Been there two times now. The second time was better than the first time. The park is just beautiful. Water looks incredible and feels even better when swimming and looking for all the fish that live at Xel-Há. It has several buffet restaurants included with your admission with very good food. The people working there are very nice with the... More

We went there with a 7 yrs old and 3 yrs old kids. we thought it was an all-inclusive place. We paid about cad 300$ for the day. Once inside we realized that many key activities were extra. My baby couldn't do much so my husband ended up watching her in the kids park for the whole day. It's a... More

This is a great day trip from Cancun. Easy to do by yourself, don't get hooked into a bus. Take a taxi on your own before the buses get going & arrive at the park earlier than them, IT GETS CROWED, spend some time doing the things everyone will want to do & avoid the lines when they are all...

I walked and floated all throughout this beautiful place searching for the big cenote on the travel brochue. I must have missed it. I found plenty of great snorkel spots though!

It was a bit expensive, but overall had a great time. Took lots of photo's using scan of wrist band and data stick ($109.00) from Xel Ha park, but not all the photo's from the entire day for all parties showed up at the end. But, still a fun time.

I went to the Tullum Mayan's before I went to Xel-Ha. I wish I just went straight to Xel-Ha because its a long day and for you to enjoy everything I would suggest making the day of it. The water was amazing. The picture package is worth it. Purchase when you first get to the park. The food was not... More
