Xel-Ha is one of the most acclaimed adventure and ecotourism parks in Cancun and throughout Mexico. It is part of the Xcaret Group and is visited by more than 750 thousand people annually. This park has 70 hectares in which you can find wonderful attractions surrounded by adrenaline and nature.
Xel-Ha is home to a huge natural cove, as well as diverse species of flora and fauna. The park's name, "Xel-Ha" means "where the water is born" because several subway rivers converge here.

Find in this post all the information you need to plan your next visit to Xel-Ha.
Xel-Ha is located just 40 minutes south of Playa del Carmen and approximately 1 and a half hours from Cancun.
Xel-Ha park's opening hours are Monday to Sunday from 8:30 am to 6:00 pm. These may vary depending on holidays.
Xel-Ha park has different types of tickets with different prices:
It is important to mention that children under 4 years old get in for free, while children from 5 to 11 years old only pay half the adult ticket price.
First of all, you should know that Xel-Ha has its own tour, which offers transportation. However, most visitors want to save money and have more freedom during their visit, so they decide to get to the park independently.
Among the best options is Cancun Car Rental, which is quite common since it provides freedom and comfort to visit every corner of the area. There is also the option of hiring a Cancun Taxi service, which will take you quickly and directly to the park. However, this is usually an expensive alternative due to the high seasonal rates and lack of regulation.
If you want to save money during your trip, we recommend you get to Xel-Ha by ADO buses that leave from the Cancun and Playa del Carmen bus stations.
Xel-Ha Park radiates beauty thanks to its fantastic nature. In it, you will find a large creek where several subway rivers flow, as well as diverse species of flora and fauna, four different types of mangroves, and many ecosystems of relevance in the Mexican Caribbean.
Xel-Ha is characterized by its diverse activities full of adventure and adrenaline, such as snorkeling, mangrove tours, scuba diving, zip lines, and swimming in the coves, cenotes, and subway rivers. Other attractions also include:
Xel Ha also has some activities that have an extra cost, such as: swimming with dolphins, sea trek, snuba, spa, zip-bike, and encounter with rays and manatees, among others.
Visiting Xel-Ha is a unique experience; however, due to its enormous extension of just over 70 hectares, it is somewhat difficult to visit it in a single day. Therefore, here are some recommendations for you to enjoy your visit and make the most of it.
