For some, a vacation means sleeping in, eating delicious food and lounging on the beach. For others, it involves a blend of relaxation and adventure. That’s why the Riviera Maya is such a great place to travel — we have it all. Whether you prefer to relax in an exotic beach destination or consider yourself the more adventurous type, visiting Xel-Há is one of the most exciting things to do near Playa del Carmen.
Xel-Há Park is the largest aquarium in the world. But, unlike aquariums where you marvel behind glass, at Xel-Há, you’re a participant in the aquarium. Guests can snuba, which is a combination of snorkeling and scuba diving, at the caleta or lagoon. Guests can also follow the underwater pathways as they Sea Trek® under water. In addition to oceanside and underwater activities, Xel-Há is located near Tulum, so your ticket can include a tour of one of the most comprehensive and famous Mayan Ruins in the Mayan Rivera.
Other exciting activities include:
- Snuba (a combination of snorkeling and scuba)
- Swimming with dolphins
- Manatee encounters
- Zip Bike Tours
- Temaxcal Steam Baths
- The Xel-Há Spa
“Our goal was to find someplace we could enjoy snorkeling, soak of the sun, but yet do things at our own pace. Xel-ha was perfect for this.” Ryan from Saganaw, MI.
“There was something for everyone from the zip lining to the tubing down the lazy river.” A Rossi from Waukesha, Wisconsin.
“We…had a few hours to ourselves which we spent snorkeling, walking and just watching the fish, stingrays & manatees. We went back to the dolphin area and just snorkeled around with 3 dolphins AMAZING!” Jo from Cambridge, United Kingdom.
