This ecological park is powered by quiet river currents.

Legend has it that the Mayan gods combined their wisdom, enthusiasm and love for the beauty to create the place where the best of the Caribbean nature were together. The ancient Maya civilization called this place Xel-Ha: "Place where water is born".

Set in the Aventura Cenote surrounded by the most beautiful vegetation and glorious tropical sun we offer you the Flight of MO, the macaw guardian of the skies which according to Mayan legends had the duty of taking care of the trees.

 Stone of Courage - One of the most extreme water activities of Xel-Ha, performed next to the floating bridge. Jump to the river from a height of 5 meters! The excitement begins once the adventurer reaches the edge and stares into the sandy bottom of the clear blue river; the river at this point has 4 meters in depth and is apt for diving.

Nursery - Rustic and built from the region´s raw materials, the Nursery has several projects intended for preservation of the natural reserve as well as programs in our educational forum intended to educate our visitors on the vast flora we protect in Xel-Ha.

Cenotes- are truly ones the most beautiful and exotic landscapes of Mexico. The word Cenote comes from the word Dzonot which means water cavity. Cenotes were of great importance because not only were they sacred places but also the only way of reaching fresh water in the jungle. There exists a whole variety of Cenotes ranging from pools of clear water to underwater caves and passages that contain the precious resource that is water.

Mayan Cave- the Mayan world was upside down. Heaven was below ground in an "underworld" of caves, guarded by fantastic beasts and gods. The religious beliefs of the ancient Mayas always represented a sort of cyclic duality which was explained to them by nature itself. Caves had a very significant importance in their culture because they were considered to be a portal of communication with their gods, a characteristic true of many ancient Mesoamerican cultures such as the Maya.

Grotto Ixchel- Ixchel was the greatest Mayan Goddess, of the Moon, Wife of the Sun and a High Deity of Reproduction, her numeric and symbolic ascendancy refers to a variety of sacred nuclei in terrestrial and celestial orders.

Grotto El Dorado- Five million years ago, the 84 hectares that encompass the park were below sea level. One-hundred and twenty-five million years ago, the Wisconsin Glacier ground the sea bed into the exotic and fascinating formations we see today, compressing the rock and limestone beds and creating the Inlet.

Floating Bridge - The 80 meter floating bridge is an opportunity to get face to face with nature and to relax in the calm breeze that enters from the sea. Our Floating Bridge at Xel-Ha is an engineering masterpiece and we are proud to say that no other water park has such a spectacular bridge.

Mayan Wall- A remnant from the days as a port of Xel-Ha, the Archaeological Zone displays the products that made Mayan commerce flow making the Mayan empire thrive and become one of Mexico´s cultural jewels. The wall marked the limit for the port of Xel-Ha in ancient times and was constructed with the typical limestone used in Mayan architecture.

The Inlet- At Xel-Ha we wish to offer you the comfort of experiencing the underwater adventure of the Inlet by renting full snorkel equipment, including: mask, fins, safety jacket, and with the rental of the snorkel equipment the park gives you a brand new snorkel, just for you.
The Inlet adventure is one for everyone to enjoy, even our less experienced swimmers which can float along the current with the protection of a safety jacket and a mask and snorkel that will reveal the true nature of Xel-Ha.
