Xel-ha is a beautiful and fun day to fit in, but it does take all day. Find another place to do the dolphin swim - they don't do it justice there. Expensive day - $129 US dollars for adult - but includes most of what you need for the day; food, beverage, drinks, snorkel equipment, inner tubes, lots of activities. Scooter Rental for trip around Cozumel is a must! Fun time and gorgeous sights - the only thing we missed was taking time to snorkel. Will do next time! TIP - don't rent scooters on the Ferry - wait to find another local scooter rental that will be less expensive.

  • 1. Xel-ha

    Natural theme water park - unbelievable beauty and so much to do! Do yourself a favor -take a QUICK ride down the lazy river and jump off the cliffs, but ride the bikes up the trail rather than taking the little shuttle - it's fun!

  • 2. Cozumel

    Fun place for a day trip - but more fun is to be had outside of the city on the beautiful beaches and fun shops outside of the city.

  • 3. Playa del Carmen

    Spend time going down 5th ave - don't be afraid to take a walk down one of the side streets during the day - the shop owners on the side streets are much more willing to haggle over the price.
