Who knew you could experience stress on your vacation? Parents just want to relax on the beach, kids want to snorkel and swim all day long, and teenagers are fixated on the thrilling possibilities of a zipline tour through the jungle. What to do, what to do?
Solve All Your Vacation Itinerary Dilemmas by Taking a Day Trip to Xel-Ha
Rather than running yourselves ragged trying to meet everyone’s needs, we recommend taking a day trip to Xel-Ha where all of your group’s “Must-Dos” are checked off in one location. This makes for a more peaceful and satisfying vacation all around.
Xel-Ha combines all of the history and cultural relevance of the Mayan Riviera with a menu of fun activities on the beach, in the jungle, or on the river. It’s formed by a beautiful inlet that creates a multi-channel fresh water estuary. These unique formations, the crystal clear water, and beautiful white sands were formed over thousands of years of coral erosion.
Now, there are more than 90 marine and freshwater species that make their home here, including parrot fish, horse mackerel, snapper, and the occasional barracuda. You can also catch glimpses of the sea turtles and manatees that are frequent visitors to the inlet.
Activities available at Xel-Ha include:
An all-inclusive ticket to Xel-Ha is just $89 USD for children and adults 12-years and older. Children 5- to 11-years are half-price and children 4 and under are free. You can save extra by purchasing your tickets in advance or paying attention to Xel-Ha’s special promotions.
