You love snorkeling, YOU GOT TO GO THERE!!!!!! Best day of my life.... Of course if you want to do more you got to pay for extra activities, I bought the sea trek activity to swim with stingrays and that was amazing ... But careful bring your own camera who can go under water because their packages for pictures are... More

We had a great day at Xel-Ha. The snorkeling is amazing - plenty of colourful fish for everyone to see. So many other other things to do...zip bike, lazy river, or just sitting on the lounge chairs or hammocks and enjoying the day. Lots of walking involved and additional costs for some of the attractions (swim with the dolphins/stingrays/manatees, etc.).

Such a brilliant day. Didnt have chance to see the whole park. Swimming with the dolphins was amazing but can also swim with the fish from sea and sting rays! More than just a park an attractions too!

You have to love to be in the water and we love the water. One in the party did not snorkel and it was not as much fun for him but a great place for beginner snorkelers. We tubed, snorkeled, zip lined into the water, and went into a cave. It was unbelievable.

We had the best day at Xel-Ha! My boyfriend, my sister and I spent our last day in Mexico in this wonderful water adventure park and we really wanna go back! We purchased our tickets in advance and used ADO bus transportation to get there, making the whole trip a great deal. We enjoyed breakfast, lunch, snacks and drinks -... More

We had an amazing day here! We snorkelled for hours. We saw beautiful colourful fish, stingray, barracuda and other sea life. We also did the zip-bike and that was such a cool experience. Saw amazing things and went through the neatest cave! I had a fish therapy foot soak...wonderfully bizarre! A nice trail all around the park to walk on... More

Great day out, plenty to do and the dolphins were amazing. Plenty of places to eat and drink and a wide range in variety so you'll never go hungry or struggle to find something you like. Activities included bike ride, numerous zip wires, cliff diving, loads of Snorkeling and a lazy river. Only downside as mentioned by loads of people... More

Xel-ha is a must see for the first time in Mexico. You get to snorkel without the fear of being on a boat or in the middle of the ocean. Their new locker system and photo system was great for our group of 9. Good for all ages, even if you aren't a real strong swimmer. If you buy the... More

Was only a 1o minute journet from GBP Coba to Xel-Ha so arrived there nice and early on the coach, although if we go again would go via private taxi to get in as much time there as possible. Once in Xel-Ha you obviously have to declare what sun screen you have as has to be bio degradable they do... More
