Book early! Makes it so much more affordable!Our whole family had a great time ages 4 to 54....enjoyed everything from restaurants to snorkeling to hammock time. They also allowed us to pool all 10 people together for the photo opportunities! It was nice to get all the pictures!

I had heard from others how much they loved Xel Ha so being in Cancun with our girls 17 & 23, we decided to go. We booked it through the hotel, although easier, you pay quite a bit more and getting there took over 2 hours because they pick you up and then take you to a central station to... More

Xel-Ha is a great way to keep your young ones occupied and entertained for a day. The park is similar to the Disney theme parks in the US but much cleaner, somewhat fewer people (Disney during Christmas season is unbearable) and has a lot more natural vegetation and beauty to go with the themed activities. Many reviews have harped on... More

This is a very well thought out park. Not good if the whether isn't hot though. I had a great day without purchasing any of the extra activities we still didn't get bored. I'm not keen on the amount of space the Dolphins and Manatsees get even if it is more natural than somewhere like SeaWorld.

Great family activity, much to do besides snorkeling. They have tubes as well to float down the cenote, there is cliff jumping, zip lines, "swimming with daulphins" for extra fee etc. The place is vast, all you can eat/drink. We had a blast!

We went with 14 and 12 year old children and we all had a great time! We decided not to do the combined trip with Tulum and are glad that we spent the whole day at Xel-ha because there is a lot to do! In addition to the free activities included with your pass we chose Snuba and Zip-Bike. Snuba... More

The snorkelling here was out of this world. A huge lagoon area with lots of variety of fish. Lockers, towels are provided. I loved the tubing down the river through the Mangroves. Lots to do, good value for money and several restaurants.

We started the day Snorkeling and then we went Zip lining and floated down the lazy river,( which is not for lazy people, sometimes the lazy river is hard work trying to keep yourself from falling...
