XEL-HA ECOLOGICAL PARK EXCURSIONS
Xel Ha is one of the most beautiful places in the Riviera Maya. It is a true tropical paradise, filled with tranquil lagoons teeming with tropical fish, relaxing rivers you can float along through the park, Mayan ruins, dolphins, tropical birds, hammocks, white sand beaches, tropical rain forest, and an awesome all-inclusive package to make your luxury day in paradise complete.
Xel Ha is a great place for couples, honeymooning in the Riviera Maya, or for families to enjoy a day in the sunshine with the kids. It is truly a wonder of nature, and everyone enjoys their day here. Highly recommended for all visitors to the Riviera Maya.
INCLUDED WITH ADMISSION
The following items are included in all of our tours and entrance tickets, shown above. You just need to bring yourself!
AVAILABLE AT ADDITIONAL COST
The park is open from 9:00 AM to 5:30 PM every day.
If you are staying in Playa del Carmen or regions north of Playa del Carmen:
We recommend the Private Xel Ha All-Inclusive. This tour will give you the maximum time at the park, and save you 2.5 hours on average over the public tour. However, if you're only a few people, you will save money by doing the public tour.
If you are staying south of Playa del Carmen (Akumal or Tulum):
You'll probably want to choose the "Entrance Only" option above. This will give you only your tickets, which will save you having to stand in long lines at the entrance to purchase them, but will not provide transportation. From these areas, it will likely be somewhat cheaper for you to just take a taxi than to do a tour since they are near Xel Ha. Of course, with a tour, it's all taken care of - nothing for you to worry about.
If you have your own rental car:
Even if you have a rental car, a tour is still the way to go. Remember that the package is all-inclusive, so if you plan to utilize the package and drink alcohol, this will inhibit your ability to drive a vehicle. Drinking and driving laws are strictly enforced, and landing in Mexican jail can really ruin a vacation. However, if you don't drink, you may want to choose the "Entrance Only" option and drive yourself.
Tulum & Xel Ha Packages:
In our opinion, Xel Ha is best experienced in an all-day tour, rather than a combo tour. We did this and felt that we wished we had more time at Xel Ha. However, if you want to see Mayan Ruins, but have kids - this is a good compromise. Something for you, something for them. Also if you don't have time to do both things during your vacation, this is a way for you to get a taste of both.
While we normally recommend to do the dolphin swim somewhere else on a different day so that you can enjoy the park to it's fullest, you can't do the Sea Trek with dolphins anywhere else, so that one you'll want to do here. Also, if you don't have time to do the swim on another day. For the best experience, though, doing dolphins with a Tulum & Xel Ha combo will leave you with very little time to enjoy the park, so we'd recommend only doing dolphins with an Xel Ha only tour. It is critical to book the dolphin swims well in advance, they will almost surely be sold out by the time you arrive at Xel Ha.
IMPORTANT: Xel Ha will not allow you to bring your regular sunblock into the park, as part of the ongoing effort to protect the environment. It will be confiscated at the gate unless it is biodegradable. See Biodegradable Sunscreen.
