Xel-Ha Natural wonder awaits you!

Xel-Ha is simply unique!

Xel-Ha is one of the world's most beautiful, natural aquariums. And it's all inclusive too!!!

Swim and snorkel surrounded by rainbow colored fish who have made the river and inlet their home, take long walks in the middle of the jungle, ride a bike, take the train or just relax while enjoying the lazy river! All these activities are included too!

Xe Ha was great, i enjoyed the staff, the drinks, and water. The one thing that i wasn't a fan of, was how cloudy the water was because of all the oil from everyone's sunscreen, and i believe fish were spawning. All in all, it was an awesome park, better snorkeling then Xcaret, which i enjoyed as well. I love... More

This is a fantastic park, perfect for snorkeling beginners and those who want to jam pack their day with splashing around. The park is basically a natural inlet that is separated from the open sea by a floating bridge, so there is nothing to prevent fish from swimming into the various reefs, and they do. We saw a huge variety... More

Xel-Ha is a beautiful treasure! We enjoyed all of the activities that were included with the package. The park is clean and the food was excellent. A BIG THANK YOU to Alejandro Saucedo -- a diver in the river who was able to retrieve my underwater camera from the bottom of the river.

The park itself is very beautiful and is a great way to spend a relaxing day swimming, snorkeling, eating and drinking. The food is OK for an all inclusive; it does the job. What really makes this place amazing are some of the "add-ons" that are not included in the basic admission. The Dolphin Swim is a great experience if... More

I knew I wanted to visit Xel-Ha as I'd seen videos of the park back in the UK and it looked brilliant fun and a great chance for snorkelling. However, I've been snorkelling in The Philippines (one of the best locations in the world for diving), so perhaps this was the reason I was majorly underwhelmed. We didn't see a... More

What a great place. FIrst. Thank you to the Chef who opened the restaurant early on April 19th. It was a rainy morning and they opened early so people could get in. Second. WOW....what a water park. Much more than we expected. Super nice facilities. Well run. Easy tubing, cliff jumps, zip line, trails to roam, caves to explore. Snorkeling... More

I was expecting more. Nice place but very expensive if you want to try all activities. Swimming with dolphins is 60usd minimum and up to 159usd. Scuba diving, another 100. If you're going there to do everything, it'll cost you 600usd per person. The only thing included with your general admission is snorkeling, tubing, food and beverages. I did like... More

The whole day was a complete thrill. The park is beautifully set out. Everything is included. Spotlessly clean. An experience I will never for get. I can't wait to go back.

We had an amazing time at Xel-Ha! We did this as a solo excursion did not combine it with another one. I went with my husband and 8 year old daughter. I booked this directly through the company and if you do it 21 days in advance you get 15% off, so I recommend doing that in advance so you... More
