Our family had a great day here. My family had fun snorkeling and ziplining. The water was beautiful and not too cold. We paid extra to swim with the dolphins. My boys loved it. They spend a lot of time educating people about the environment and how our actions effect all living things. I was impressed at how spread out... More

Xel Ha was a great place to go to. Geoff and I didn't get to do everything we wanted. The only crappy thing was the bus ride to get there. We had a nice bus from the the hotel, it was just like a 2 hour or 2 1/2 hour ride there from cancun. The water was beautiful!!!! We swam... More

Booked this excursion in advance and hoped it would like up to our previous trip to Xcaret park. Xel-ha is so large that you could use multiple days to take advantage of everything. We were only here for a few hours and found the snorkeling to be above grade for the novice and average swimmer. Lots of marine life to... More

This park is the highlight of my trip to Cancun! It's the most beautiful eye opening theme park I have ever seen in my life and I am so thankful to have experience this place. They have many activities to choose from snorkeling, sight seeing on the trials with live animals just walking around in the wild jungles. They also... More

We went here in March 2014. Rented a car from our resort in Cancun and drove to Xel-Ha with my family. The drive was easy (about 1.5 hours) and safe. Traveling with the wife, 10-yrs and 2-yrs old. It was cheaper and better than going with a tour or taxi. We stop at Tulum for a little bit. Tulum is... More

During our recent trip to Cancun we visited Xel-Ha. We also visited Xplor and Xcaret parks as well. My wife and I both agreed this was our favorite park. There are a ton of activities to do. We really enjoyed the river tour. It's really nice. Not quite as long as the one in Xcaret but arguably a little prettier.... More

Xel-Ha was a fun experience. I recommend spending a full day there, there is some beautiful things to do! The all-inclusive tickets gives you meals and drinks, while food is not very tasty it is still nice to have the option. If possible try to visit on a sunny day, as you will be wet mostly of the time! The... More
