Xel-Ha is an amazing place. There is so much to do at the park. The park itself is extremely clean, well marked and with our tour the food and drinks were all you can eat/drink. We highly recommend this excursion. Great for families or couples.

Absolutely worthwhile doing. We are a couple in our early 50s and kept up with the younger crowd. I highly recommend doing this adventure.

This was a beautiful experience for our family of six including four teenaged boys. The trip from start to finish was highly organized and efficient. We were picked up promptly at our hotel in the morning. Travel to Xel-Ha was easy with a brief video on the bus trip about 90 minutes from the Hotel Zone in Cancun to inform what the park offered. The park was absolutely beautiful - very natural but well organized so we could find our way around. Aquatic sealife was everywhere - you could see gorgeous tropical fish as you crossed bridges to get to the different portions of the park. The park was well marked with different colored trails to identify where different activities were. We purchased the all inclusive package which included breakfast, lunch, and snacks and drinks of course. The food was absolutely delicious and well beyond our initial expectations. The service was terrific. The best part of course was the snorkeling. We took the Stingray SeaTrek tour, and it was great. I was able to wear my glasses, and we were able to touch several stingrays that swam into the area. There were divers with our group who helped direct us into the water, through the walk, and back out again. Truly something I never thought I'd try but it was a great memory for all of us and we felt more comfortable snorkeling later in the day as stingrays came through the area we were swimming in. We also did the zipline bike tour which was fun. We probably would have been happier just doing the stingray tour and snorkeling the rest of the day as having a schedule of activities kind of broke up the relaxing rhythm of the day. My suggestion would be either to just snorkel as there are a TON of places to do that and see many types of fish OR pick one tour and get that done as early as you can to allow yourself more time to relax. We also bought waterproof cameras and reef proof sunscreen on Amazon.com before we came and saved that way. Highly recommend this trip!

Amazing day! So much to do that we ran out of time to see everything. We wanted to swim with dolphin but by time we got there all extra activities had sold out so if you are thinking of booking one of these maybe book with rep at hotel instead to prebook as we arrived at 10:30. All reasonably priced I think they were between 1000-1500 pesos. Definitely buy the photo package 1200 pesos for 2 people and throughout the site their are photographers and cameras where you can take your own photos unlimited and at the end of day they are put on a pen stick, its all very clever using the barcode on your wrist band! Food and drink unlimited very nice! Lazy river to snorkel or tube down, zip wire, rope courses over water, cliff jumping and lots of fish! Shop around for cheapest price as everyone is picked up by the parks coaches regardless of who they book with. Everyone leaves at 6 so get a full day of fun.
