Caribbean coast: Riviera Maya and Tulum: Visit Xel Ha natural theme park

Visit Xel Ha natural theme park

A pioneering aquatic theme park set in a stunning inlet, Xel Ha is a unique attraction particularly well-suited to families.

The natural environment is the setting for most of the activities within the park, from floating down a lazy river in rubber rings and jumping from cliffs into the clear water below, to exploring cenotes (limestone sinkholes) and snorkelling in a lagoon inhabited by tropical fish.

It's a thrilling but safe introduction to the full variety of coastal landscapes and habitats along the Mayan Riviera. At extra cost, you can even swim with dolphins and manatees or try out scuba diving in subterranean grottoes.
