Great time with Dolphin Swim and Encounter. Park staff was friendly and great service Highly recommend dolphin swim. Snorkel with dolphins was done but short and disappointing but recommend snorkeling in open lagoon instead

Poor snorkeling, ok food, ok other attractions. Wouldn't go again... The cliff dives were fun, the ropes course was fun, the water was pretty gross and there weren't very many fish--we split the day between xelha and tulum and were glad we did-I wouldn't spend a full day here. If you buy this I'd get the package with coba at... More

Liked the lagoon area as there was plenty to see in the water. Enjoyed getting in and out of the water to see different things. Jumped off the high rock, go a long way into the water if you keep straight. We liked seeing the wildlife in the forested areas especially the Coatis. As a family we do not like... More

My Wife and I really loved Xel-ha, It was worth every penny we paid. There was so much to do and you always felt well looked after. Swimming with the Fish was great and some of the more quite spot we blissful. We booked travel as part of our tickets and that was well worth while. We got the site... More

We went to Xel Ha after Tulum and it was a very much needed add on to our tour. The food was great and pretty authentic. We loved being in the river and floating down into the inlet. We saw lots of fish while snorkeling (if you don't see any you may not be in the right spots, look for... More

We visited Xel-Ha on our holiday to Mexico, we found this excursion 'ok' and was enjoyable, the place it's self isn't too clean the bar area and the restaurants. The lagoon is excellent, we really enjoyed snorkelling, the lagoon is well looked after. We wasn't really impressed with the price we paid to go on this excitation but over all... More

This place was stunning. I spent the afternoon here and enjoyed snorkeling. The variety of sea life is amazing and I was able to swim easily as the water was not rough and quite clear. Floating on an inner tube through the mangroves was relaxing and very interesting. The only suggestion is to have more bathrooms! I swam to one... More

It was like being part of a huge natural aquarium. The freedom to snorkel all around. We saw sea turtles, fish of every color, beautiful is an understatement. We zip lined and did the lazy river. We loved it. You wear life vests and feel very safe. Great buffet and very clean.

As a keen snorkeller, I was excited when we booked the day at Xel Ha. Fish heaven it looked like on the brochure. Once we arrived, we headed straight to the lockers on Red Section (mistake one! Go to yellow section, MILES quieter!) And then after changing we headed to the start of the lazy river (via the train/car). Instead... More
