Xel-Ha, Riviera Maya

(4.2/5 based on 13,000+ reviews on the web)
A popular day-trip idea from Cancun, Xel-Ha combines water-based entertainment with tours of a historically significant archaeological site. This aquatic theme park, which calls itself a "natural aquarium," contains a section of a Maya settlement probably occupied until the 19th century. Named after the ancient town, the park offers a range of family-oriented activities. Swim with colorful fish, take long strolls through the jungle, ride bikes across the lush landscape once inhabited by the mighty Maya, or enjoy a leisurely river tour. Check the website for additional activities and take advantage of discounts by reserving your tickets in advance. Work out when and for how long to visit Xel-Ha and other Soliman Bay attractions using our handy Soliman Bay vacation planner.

  • It has many beautiful natural attractions, the staff were very good, the food well. It is expensive for the nationals even if they make a 10% If you present id official. They close early and already let you pass the restaurant point indicated HR.
