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!

The park itself is amazing. So much to see, so much to do! Me and my husband really enjoyed snorkeling. The water is clear and you can spot the fishes around rocks and corals. There ar dozens of them. Also liked the lazy river, very relaxing. It's also great that you can eat and drink all day! It's included in... More

Took a day trip to Xel-Ha and it was so much fun! You need to be prepared to spend a lot of time in the water but it's well worth it. Great fun snorkeling, zip lining and enjoying the beautiful surroundings.

I went with my 9 year old son and 10 year old daughter. We all enjoyed the park immensely. When we got there we had breakfast buffet. It had pancakes, French toast, yoghurt, scrambled eggs and lots more. We all had French toast which was ok. Remind yourself your not there for the food. The eggs were inedible. Then we... More

instead of booking through any providers it's just easy to grab a cab in the morning and just pay the $89 per person at the gate. They also have other packages that include snuba, dolphin, sting ray and manatee encounters but we just did the basic entry. There are free lockers and towels and lots of signage and maps to...

This place rocked! Only spent half a day but could have spent three full days at this location. Snorkelling with the schools of colourful fish was the highlight. The free food and drink was nice too. Absolutely worth the money and definitely the best tour taken while in that neck of the woods!

I was first at Xel-Ha in 1994, shortly after it opened to the public. It has since blossomed into an all-inclusive day-trip, meaning almost all activities and food and drinks are included in the admission price. It's a LOT more crowded now than it was back then, but the mix of freshwater from the river and springs and saltwater from... More

The one thing we wish we realized is that there are lockers etc at multiple "colour" stations throughout the park. Don't stop at the first one as it is farthest from amenities, but pick one strategically for the day. Also, check online two weeks before trip for discounts, we were able to get 6 ppl for 50% off each, really... More

We visited xel-ha as an excursion with a tour company (called traffic tours) from the lobby of our gran serenis hotel (we didnt book through our rep as prices differ considerably). The coach service was really good; good drop off and pick up times and v organised. You can do extras at xel-ha (dolphin swim, ray experience, scuba-type walk under... More

Pre booked our trip to Xel ha based on a friend's recommendation and we were glad we did. Pre booking ties you to a specific day but saves around 15% on the admission price which is worth it. Took the local Collectivo bus to the attraction and then had a brief walk up to it. We booked the photography package... More
