What You Can Expect

Xel-Há All-Inclusive Day Trip from Playa del Carmen

Explore caves and other natural attractions at Xel-Ha

Depart from your Playa del Carmen hotel and enjoy a relaxing 35-minute ride in a comfortable minivan. Arrive at the picturesque park of Xel-Há, a natural aquarium situated on the Riviera Maya, and revel in the exciting options your all-inclusive day pass affords you. 

Set out to explore the natural wonders of the park and marvel at the distinct landscape of Xel-Há’s lagoons; admire the rugged rock formations and sparkling cenotes as you discover this delightful destination. 

Consult your pocket map then stroll over to the principle lagoon. Don professional snorkelling gear (rental free but deposit required) and plunge into the inviting waters to explore the magnificent marine life within. Swim past troves of tropical fish as you immerse yourself in the turquoise tranquillity of the water. 

Next, take a tram or cycle to the top of the relaxing river. Climb into an inner tube and commence a gentle journey downstream, languidly floating past atmospheric mangroves and unique flora. Muster your courage and jump from a crumbling cliff into the water below during your float. 

Journey deep into the heart of the jungle on one of Xel-Há’s wildlife trails; observe fascinating flora and fauna like lizards, birds and iguanas as you wander past secretive cenotes and underground caves, discovering the hidden secrets of this enthralling eco-system. Rest and revitalize on one of the parks many comfortable loungers, all of which afford gorgeous views of the surrounding scenery. 

When hunger strikes, venture to one of five restaurants to feast upon local and international specialities; your all-inclusive pass includes food and beverages. Sip refreshing soft drinks or ice-cold beers before sampling Mayan specialities, juicy burgers and fresh seafood.

When the park closes, return to your comfortable minivan to enjoy the short return journey back to your Playa del Carmen hotel, where the tour concludes.

All inclusive is definitely the way to go. All you can eat and drink all day long. Great food and beverages too. There was a ton of things to do and it was truly a great way to spend the day. No way to do everything available in one day, however that just means we'll have to come back and do it all over again.

This tour is great, since it is not paired with the other visits. All time can be spent exploring the various sites of Xel-ha. We did like snorkeling better here than on a reef, going down the river, biking and just walking around. Great day, a lot of memories.

The tour itself was a large air conditioned tour bus full of people going of many different excursions. The buses all meet at Xel-ha and the other trips depart from there. We were the first tour bus to arrive and had the park to ourselves for quite some time. The most amazing park. Between snorkelling, cliff jumping, lazy river through the mangroves, mini zip lines, bike riding, hammocks, food, ice cream, manatees, exotic birds, .... You could never run out of things to do! Amazing day!

One of the best trips we have been on. It was a long day but worth the visit. To be able to swim with all the tropical fish and especially the dolphins was the best experience. The dolphins were an extra cost but not as expensive as Florida. We only had four people in our group and had two dolphins swimming with us. We obviously had to buy a photo after! The aerial bike ride was also something worth doing. The food and drink was unlimited - lunch was the better option - lots of variety. The breakfast was mainly pancake based - alright if you like them! No bacon - would have been nice. All in all a great day.

Lot's of fun activities to do and the tour guide was very helpful with explaining the extras.

Xel-ha has a lot to offer when it comes to what is provided for free.. unlimited use of snorkel gear, lifevests, food and booze. The upcharge for things such as swimming with the dolphins is a bit pricey but that's to be expected. I would highly recommend this if you prefer to visit a natural water park.
