Relax to the max at Xel-Ha, an eco-park that’s about enjoying everything the natural world has to offer — from the sea to the jungle. This Riviera Maya park is for people who like their adventure with a chilled out twist, as it lets you explore treetops and underwater caves alike. It’s up to you to figure out where to begin.


Discover Xel-Ha’s mystical origins

The ancient Mayans named this magical site Xel-Ha, which means ‘where the water is born’. It’s an apt name for this natural water park, one of the largest in the world. It’s so big, you’ll need a whole day to delight in everything Xel-Ha has to offer! Luckily, you have 9 hours to explore this majestic eco-park after pick-up from your resort.

Swim below water, bike above land

At Xel-Ha, you have the luxury of taking things at your own pace. Swim peacefully toward your own inlet corner and snorkel among the colorful fish, or take a slip-and-slide down the river.

If you’re more of a landlubber, that’s just fine. Why not explore the ample forest along jungle paths or take a bike-ride through the bushes? You can even ride above the canopy on Xel-Ha's Zip-Bike experience!

Lunch and relaxation abound at Xel-Ha

All that adventuring is hungry work, so make sure you take advantage of the continental breakfast and the lunch buffet — with plenty of Mexican and international flavors. There are snacks to munch on during the day and a thirst-quenching open bar, too.

Between meals, make sure you take in all the beautiful spots this place has to offer — from the wildlife corners to the chilled out coves. Surround yourself in nature's gifts and simply relax. From hammocks by the sea or river, to dipping in cool water coming from the underground rivers, to discovering what a true cenote looks like.

Wrap up a great day of Riviera Maya fun

After spending the day swimming, trekking, and exploring, it’s time to end your Riviera Maya experience. Gather at the meeting point and hop on the bus, where you can reminisce about your heavenly Xel-Ha fun all the way back to your resort.
