Spend a fun-filled day at Xel-Ha, an aquatic theme park where you can enjoy activities such as river tubing, bicycling, snorkeling and soaring like a bird on the zip-line.
After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a scenic journey to Xel-Ha, a beautiful aquatic park in a large protected cove on the mainland. Centuries ago, the Maya created a trading center, pilgrimage site and shelter for sailors here. In the Mayan language, Xel-Ha means “where the water is born,” and it is still a fitting description.
In this natural wonderland, you will be free to participate in whatever activities interest you the most. You might ease into an inner tube and float down the Xel-Ha River. Along the way, you can pause on the riverside platforms and, if you are feeling adventurous, you can climb the Cliff of Courage and then jump off into the river.
Riding the zip-lines and then splashing down into the water is another exhilarating, adrenaline-pumping activity. You can also fly through the air on a rope swing named for the Mayan Guardian of the Air, Chuc Kay.
There are also plenty of activities that are less physically demanding. You might meander down a jungle trail, enjoy the serenity of Chacah’s Garden, and snorkel through the cove, which is teeming with marine life such as angelfish, snapper, turtles and even manatees. The day is yours to enjoy as you so fit, whether it’s being physically active or simply relaxing.
