The Basics

Swim through underground rivers, dive into a cenote, traverse a floating bridge, and snorkel in lagoons filled with tropical fish, sea turtles, and manatees. On land, you can zipline above the canopy, rock climb, bike, or stroll through the jungle.

Xel-Ha is part of a network of related parks and experiences, including Xcaret, Xplor, Xplor Fuego, Xenotes Oasis Maya, Xoximilco Cancun, Xichen, and Xenses. It’s possible to book packages that include admission to multiple parks.

Great time!
WE had a great time. It is a great Snorkel waterpark with a lot of fun things to do. Just be sure to use plenty of the sunblock they give you as you are not allowed to bring in your own. For the protection of the critters.

These places were amazing. So much fun! Great family time. One day was all about moving and getting a great workout for the day. And the second day was complete relaxation. We had the best of both worlds by doing Xplor and Xel-ha.

Xel-Há Park All-Inclusive Admission Ticket
Amazing all inclusive water park! First time in Xel Ha after booking as a recommendation from another friend and it did not disappoint! There were so many things to do! My group did the scenic bike ride to the river, did the lazy river and cliff jumps as well as the slide and snorkeling. The included buffet was excellent and had endless pina coladas! Definitely will return and recommend to others!

Snorkel, Breakfast, Buffet, Drinks, Xel-ha All Included!
There is a lot to do and you will most likely want to do some activities twice , unless you're hungover I don't reccomend the lazy river , it takes up around 1.5-2 hours of time if you're tubing and letting the current take you ,it's relaxing but there are much better activities , food and service is excellent , would go again 100%

Xelha was a wonderful place. Traveled with 4 teens and everyone had so much fun! Definitely worth the trip but prepare for a full day as it is 2 hours each way from Cancun.

Definitely the highlight of our cancun trip. The place is beautiful and very fitting for those who enjoy water activities. The ride there was a bit overly long as we had to stop at a transportation center to change buses (ended up being a 2.5h ride from hotel zone) but besides that, it was a great day.
