Xel Ha is an eco-friendly water park spreadover a large area, with lots of lakes for snorkelling and rivers/rapids for bobbing along. There are lots of places to eat and to chill out, The water was quite chilly though even in July. Everything can be hired there. I recommend the dolphin experience as although they are in lagoons they seem... More

My husband and I are huge fans of snorkeling. We loved this excursion because of all of the activities that it offers. We have visited on multiple occasions (bringing our family on the last trip). We love all of the snorkeling, cliff jumping (i'm a chicken but my husband loved it), ropes courses, zip lines, etc. This is the one... More

Bought both Xel-Ha and Xcaret tickets at booth inside ADO bus station which included free transportation. Saved money by booking both trips at the same time. Xel Ha all inclusive included both excellent drinks such as frozen margarita, which taste fabulous after a swim on a very hot day. The best snorkeling as well as fun zip lining all in... More

This was our 4th trip to Riveria Maya but our first time exploring Xel-Ha or any of the other outdoor adventure parks in the area. Our hotel rep for Apple Vacations recommended this one as his favorite. The suggestion did not disappoint. Pickup was early at 7:30 a.m. and we only spent about an hour or so on the bus... More

OMG! This place is awesome!! There is something for everyone. I opted to start with the Zip Bike through the the jungle, bat cave and lagoon. It was fun but be prepared to pedal your butt off. I then headed to the River and floated through the mangroves and let the current take me to the open lagoon. I conquered... More

Xel-Ha Allow whole day to visit here, it is so large and entertaining that buying combined half-day visit is just a waste. We toroughly enjoyed our visit. It wasn't the cheapest but well worth the money. We particularly enjoyed ziplines and water playground. There is lot of other activities included like snorkeling or lazy river. If you are brave enough... More

My husband had been to Xel-Ha twice before but this was my first time to Mexico. I booked the AI with transfers before I went in the UK, it was very simple and straightforward. I was so excited to go. I've had a bad experience snorkeling and this was make/break whether I'd have the courage to do it again.... we'll... More
