We very much enjoyed spending the day snorkeling, riding the ziplines, and hiking around the park. We thought that we had scheduled a trip to both the Mayan ruins at Tulum and Xel-Ha park but found out once we arrived that somehow we had only booked the Xel-Ha park. Initially I was concerned that there wouldn't be enough to do for an entire day, but I was wrong. There was plenty to do from jumping off cliffs into the stream and hours of snorkeling. The food was also quite good for a water park. I do agree with some other posts that the marine life is not going to compare to snorkeling in Hawaii or off some secluded reef. However, it is an all-inclusive water park and I don't think that can really be expected based on the number of people that come to the park. We saw a few stingrays and multiple other types of fish...it isn't a reef experience but it is a very fun enjoyable water park experience that is unlike parks you might experience in the U.S. It is definitely a money-making site as you can pay to swim with dolphins, sting rays etc. As much fun as that may be it is a little pandering and certainly nothing natural about those experiences. The forced life jacket wearing is a little uncomfortable but if you don't let it bother you expect to have a good time. I would recommend it if you want to snorkel in a wave free, safe environment with the family. It is a fun experience but has a bit more of the theme park feel than I would prefer.
