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 experience! Maybe do private transportation
XelHa was amazing! So so so much! The only downside was riding the busses. That was a very long trip because we stayed in the hotel zone and had to wait a while while we picked up and then dropped off other people. Next time, I would most likely go for private transportation. Other than that, highly recommend the park!

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!

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.

We had a fabulous time at Chichen Itza and Xcaret Park. The adventures at Xcaret were our favorite. The Sea Trek adventure is a must do. We also enjoyed the Rivers Tours and visiting the exotic animals. The buffet lunch was plentiful and delicious. We were happy that there was an option for a 4:30 p.m. return. 9:30 p.m. would have been much too long.

Brilliant !

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%
