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.

Day trips to Xel-Ha typically leave from Cancun, Playa del Carmen, and the Riviera Maya, with some combining Xel-Ha and a stop in nearby Tulum. 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.

Long all day adventure
This tour group does an excellent job with the operational component of wrangling people from their hotels to a national park in the middle of the jungle. It was very organized and the guides were very professional and polite. There was some heavy up selling on the paid features of this park but you absolutely do not need to pay. You will have plenty to do with the free “included options” in your park admission. The food is not good but eating isn’t a priority when you are cliff jumping and swimming all day!

The day started in a tropical down pour. What a bummer on vacation when it rains. But once in the park, personal items secured in a lockers, from the Zip Bikes to the Dolphin experience, we have an amazing time at Xel-Ha.

So many activities to choose from. Never far from a restroom, restaurant, bar or shower. Plenty of place to sit for a rest. Easy to navigate the park.

Fantastic experience! The views were amazing, everyone was attentive. The fact that food and open bar is included makes it worth it alone! Do all the activities and have a good time.

So much fun and so much to do. The only thing is that we did not know the drive there would take over 2 hours. The bus ride is picking up a bunch of people including you and driving you to the park and then the same case driving you back home… bring head phones and a full battery. Other than that the park was so much fun lots of amazing pictures you can take and the water is beautiful!!

Tulum and Xel-Há All-Inclusive Day Trip from Playa del Carmen
Great tour and excellent guides. Tulum was a nice spot to visit and Xel-Ha was great. Limited fish in the river at Xel-Ha, however, the Dolphin encounter was fantastic.

Fantastic tour guide, great shopping opportunity with locals, loved cycling through the jungle at Coba and climbing the pyramid there was just incredible. Make sure you take snacks, because it was about 6hrs between breakfast and lunch at Xel-Ha.
