For my birthday this past weekend, we decided to go with some friends to Xel-Ha.

Xel-Ha is a huge ecopark set on in inlet in the Riviera Maya, just south of Playa del Carmen. It has a great All Inclusive plan (all you can eat buffets and all you can drink bars), and it’s perfect for snorkeling, exploring and just relaxing. It has cenotes, lagoons, a mile-long river you can swim through, cliffs, ziplines, a floating bridge, and the list goes on.

One of the highlights was floating down the river, but I didn’t get any pictures because I don’t have a waterproof camera. I saw lots of fish and a barracuda!

Other than that, I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.

The dolphinarium

Its hard to get the full effect from this picure, but under this bridge were HUNDREDS of fish. Later, Jorge and I snorkeled through there... Ive never had such an amazing experience. Then someone threw fish food on top of me and I was attacked by hundreds of fish. Good times haha

The man of my dreams, taking a much-needed nap.

  3. I love Xel-ha. The hammocks are amazing. The fish are pretty cool too. Except for one thing – both times I’ve been there (15 years apart) I’ve had a close encounter with a barracuda. Very scary and not so cool. Don’t worry, I was very brave. πŸ™‚

  5. Hi, we are going o Cancuun soon and want to visit xel-ha…My husband and I went many years ago and now we are bringing our children. I’ve been doing some research and I’m trying to figure out the best place to buy the tickets. Through my agent is expensive. I can purchase them on-line at the xel-ha website which is a better price. I know we can get them at the hotel and if I remember correctly some they were sold in stores and restaurants around Cancun. Does anyone know the best place wth the best price? Thanks for any info.
