Xel-Ha, Riviera Maya

4.1
#2 of 548 in Tours in Riviera Maya
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.
