Xel-Ha, Riviera Maya

4.2
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.

    We were in doubt whether to go visit this park then, saw the beaches inaccessible for algae, we decided. I didn't like it and wouldn't recommend it: too many people, confusing mess. Bad snorkeling. Dear

    It is a nice place which is nice when you're away from the restaurants and shops. The River to descend with the cannonballs is nice with the addict branch activities. Snorkeling, it is average, there is fish but too crowded and the funds are not pretty. Overall it's expensive for what it is!
