To swim with dolphins in Cancun is definitely one of the most incredible experiences, however, being under water with these mammals is something that you can only do in two places in the world, and Xel-há is one of them. 


You are required to wear a special helmet (Sea Trek) designed to dive, that only Delphinus has for this activity with dolphins in an entire natural environment.

Did you know that Xel-há is the world’s most sustainable park? In 2014 it became the first company in the world to receive the EarthCheck Gold International Certification, given by the world’s leading scientific benchmarking certification and advisory group for the travel and tourism industry.

If that weren’t enough, it also received the Distinctive as a Socially Responsible Company, the Trip Advisor Excellence Certificate and the Prize for the Best Business Practices for the Preservation and Conservation of Threatened Species, such as pink snails.

  1. Environmental Education Program for Public Schools of Quintana Roo 

Because Xel-há understands very well the need to educate little ones about caring for the environment, it invites 100 kids daily to workshops and tours, showing them the importance of preserving the natural resources that Quintana Roo and the rest of the country have.
