Just 80 minutes from the Cancun International Airport is one of the unofficial natural wonders of the world, and one that is also considered the largest natural aquarium in the planet. We're talking about Xel-Há, a paradise-like spot located in Riviera Maya.
If this holiday season you want to live a wholesome family experience, surrounded by dreamlike landscapes where you can enjoy many aquatic activities and get to know incredible marine species, the Dolphinclusive Xel-Há all-inclusive package by Delphinus is your best choice, and in this article, you'll find out why.
Ancient wisdom and sustainability
In Mayan times, and for its privileged location on the shores of Quintana Roo, Xel-Há functioned as a commercial and refuge port for navigators. By 1995–when it joined the Xcaret family–this park became a model for sustainable tourism since it has implemented several protection programs of water, flora, and fauna, while avoiding new impacts, for example, by providing its visitors with chemical-free sunscreen samples.
Now that you know a little more about the history and importance of this natural wonder of Mexico, keep reading to find out how you can get more out of your visit to Xel-Há by purchasing your package that includes the entrance to the park + swimming with dolphins.
Why buy the Dolphinclusive Xel-Ha package?
Enjoying Xel-Ha is easier with an all-inclusive package for 4 reasons:
- It includes free transportation from your hotel and back, so you can enjoy a whole day of fun without driving.
- It provides you with towels, lockers and snorkeling equipment, so you can make "like fish in the water", while your clothes and valuables are dry and safe.
- You get unlimited food and drinks all day in their buffet restaurants!
- You guarantee your place to swim with dolphins in Xel-Há, an interaction that usually comes at an extra cost.
Regarding the last topic, Dolphinclusive Xel-Ha allows you to choose between three different swimming with dolphins programs:
- Premium. 18 free activities with dolphins, including a foot push in which two dolphins will propel you over the water. Perfect for groups of 4 people.
- Ride. 14 activities for groups of no more than 10 people, including a fun ride drawn by the dolphin's fin.
- Interax. 14 activities for groups of no more than 10 people, perfect for families with small children or elderly people.
All these interactions can be enjoyed in one of the largest habitats of Delphinus, which is equivalent to swimming with dolphins in their natural environment.
But if you think the excitement stops here, keep reading to learn more about the activities included with your admission.
A fun day in the sun
Symbol of Xel-Há and an irresistible attraction for everyone who visits the park for the first time, the 40-meters-high Scenic Lighthouse and its views of the scenery are a must. And to get back down... descend on its spiral waterslide and feel all the adrenaline!
If your little ones aren't prepared yet for this kind of intensity, the Children's World area is a great option for its variety of waterslides, climbing ropes, and tunnels, that will keep them entertained for hours. And just a few steps away there's an area full of hammocks where you can keep an eye on them while you rest comfortably.
Besides the fun and games, the park is full of naturally amazing sights: explore the mangroves and admire the local wildlife; visit the Xel-Há Nursery to be amazed by its endless flora; marvel at the magic, mysticism and beauty of the cenotes and caves of crystalline water, or relax for a while in the Bay of Caprices, which is as pampering as its name implies.
Moving between the different areas of the park can also be an enjoyable experience, since you can move through its trails on foot, by bike or on a mini train.
And we can't talk about Xel-Há without mentioning the freshwater river that turns into a saltwater creek that flows into the Caribbean Sea. Swim and snorkel among more than 90 species of tropical fish such as angelfish, surgeonfish, damselfish, and even some barracudas that live in this place of indescribable beauty.
