Riviera Maya, Mexico | Attractions | Xel-Há Park
Xel-Ha Park in Quintana Roo is just a short drive away from Riviera Maya. This natural aquarium is one of the most popular parks in the area and is considered to be the largest aquarium in the world. There are so many things to see and do here such as zip lining, snorkeling, and swimming with dolphins and even manatees!
At Xel-Ha it is possible to walk on the seabed with the help of modern technology. Even non-swimmers can enjoy the experience of seeing marine life in its natural environment rather than an artificial habitat. The Sea Trek helmet allows you to break comfortably under water, much like a scuba diver. This is an unforgettable experience where you will get the chance to interact with stingrays, dolphins, tropical fish and manatees.
Xel-Ha also offers an on site spa which provides many rejuvenating treatments. Choose from a long list of revitalizing massages or have a traditional Mayan bath which is great for exfoliating the skin.
However, if you want something more adrenaline pumping why not have a go on zip bike. Just like a zip line you will glide across the park on a bike attached to a zip line. This 1,640 feet route will allow you to have a spectacular birds eye view of landscapes that were once ruled by the ancient Mayans.
Other facilities at Xel-Ha Park include a Caribbean restaurant with live music and an international buffet. Various snacks are also sold at La Terraza or enjoy traditional Mexican cuisine at Mexican Cantina in the Jardin Corona.
There are also plenty of lockers provided for visitors to the park, they also have showers and nine bathing facilities. Make sure to bring along your own swimming costume and towel. Lifejackets and snorkels will be provided once you arrive at the park.
The park is open from Monday to Sunday from 8:30am to 7pm. It is advised to buy the all-inclusive ticket which grants you access to all the activities and attractions as well as all the restaurants and use of snorkeling equipment. If you book online from Xel-Ha’s website you can save eight dollars!
