My husband and I went to Xel Ha for the day as part of a First Choice excursion and we had a great day. The great thing about the park is that there is so much to do that you can get exactly what you want from it. If you want a fun packed day with the family there is plenty to do (cliff jumps, zip lines, snorkelling, rope swings, all sorts!) but the park is so big that you can easily just chill out for the day. We went for the chilled out option. We got there when the park opened which I would highly recommend you do. It means you can explore the whole place completely alone and can get some amazing photos. It was really peaceful and we were able to walk around the whole park at our own pace. It was a nice romantic start to the day. By the time we had walked round the whole park we got back just as the restaurants opened for breakfast so it was great timing. I would personally recommend that you don't have breakfast at 9:30 though, it was so hectic. I would recommend waiting a bit if you can. After breakfast we went to float down the lazy river in a rubber ring. Don't worry about leaving everything in your locker, you can lock it in a safe bag (you keep the key) and they send it to the end so it's waiting for you when you get out of the water. After that we spend most of the day snorkelling which was fantastic. So many beautiful fish! We had lunch at the fast food place which was ok (what you would expect from fast food). We spent the rest of the day relaxing. We found a really quiet spot hidden behind the hut by the bridge, that was beautiful and peaceful. One tip that I can give is to use the changing rooms by the dolphins and hammocks, the main ones are really busy but these ones were tucked away so were completely empty. They had 3 showers just like the main ones though - much better. Overall it was a great day out, we didn't do half of the things there but we kept ourselves busy from 8am - 5.30pm. You can do as much or little as you want.
