Do you love swimming?
Do you enjoy exploring the variety of the underwater world?
Then to visit Xel Ha is one of the best options during you mexican vacation. The most precious about this place is the lagoon that is a home of myriads of fish. The moment I found myself in the water admiring the fish I felt like I am in a different world with all the colorful fish swimming around.
Don’t worry about the snorkeling equipment in Xel Ha it is included in your day pass as well as the delicious Mexican/Mediterranean food and drinks served in several restaurants.
Apart from snorkeling Xel Ha gives you many other opportunities to have fun: zip line with landing in the water, swimming with manatees and dolphins, jumping from the cliff, river tour, trepachanga, exploring grottos, floating bridge, bicycle ride across the jungle.
Although one day is enough to see all the attractions you will want to come back and do all the activities once again. As for me the most impressive part was the snorkeling and zip line.
Around the lagoon on the side of the restaurants you can find quiet spots hidden from all the main roads. I call them timeless places and to truly enjoy the beauty of the Xel Ha you need to stay there for some time, sitting under an umbrella while observing the beauty of the lagoon.
Xel Ha is located on the road between Akumal and Tulum. A big sign will show you where to take the right turn to the main entrance, don’t forget your photo camera or selfie stick because you definitely will make a lot of photos. Beauty will be everywhere around you there.
