Great natural environment, enjoyed the day. Snorkeling not too great, windy afternoon. I hope they take care with their environmental footprint to not destroy the natural habitat. Bike ride, zip line, lazy river great

We booked our Xel-Ha experience through our SunWing representative and it cost $109 per person. We added the zip bike experience outside the park for $26 (inside was $29). It was great! Our guide gave us some valuable tips before we went in: The yellow locker room was not as busy. Lockers are included. Once you pay your entrance fee,... More

Best part was the lazy river and the bike ride. We expected cenotes, as they are heavily advertised, but we didn't find any. I think you can only access them with the snuba, which is an extra cost. The fish were pretty sparse in the main snorkel area and the manatees looked really sad. Overall, place is clean with good... More

We had a really good time at Xel-Ha. Everything was included in our price. Breakfast, lunch/dinner, towels, lockers, snorkel equipment (all snorkels are new and you keep it), tubes, etc... From the river float to the zip lines to the snorkeling, we had an excellent time. Do make sure you have biodegradable sunscreen as they are really big on it.... More

We had a really fun day at Xel Ha (pronounced Shell Ha). Our bus guide gave us good information and showed us a large map at the site to instruct us on how to have a pleasant day. The food there was great. Plentiful drinks. No extra charge. The lazy river on a tube requires paddling and propelling yourself down... More

We visited Xel-Ha for the first time in February 2015 and had a wonderful time. There is something to do for everyone there. We snorkeled the entire lagoon and saw tons of tropical fish and even a sting ray. There's an adventure park with over the water rope courses and zip lines. There's dolphins and manatees that were fun to... More

I was so amazed the last time I went here, I'm going back again this year! It's huge, has loads of natural attraction, a little of zip lining, a little of cliff diving, a whole lot of snorkeling, and too many iguanas.

Loved this park, but wish there was more guidance on the activities. Our guide on the bus told us to follow him into the park and head to the right. There we would find the restaurant for breakfast and locker and rest rooms. We were to drop off everything we didn't need and head up river to the tube floats.... More
