Add This Park to Your Mexican Vacation

Heading to Mexico anytime soon? If you are, you want to include this mermaid paradise on your itinerary. This amazing eco-adventure park, Xel-Há, is an aquatic theme park that is located in the Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, Mexico, which is between Cancún and Tulum. The fitting name translates into “where the water is born”, which was given to this breathtaking site by the ancient Mayans long before anyone thought to transform it into a tourist attraction. In 2009, it was the first part in the world to receive the prestigious Gold Award , which is the most important certification within the tourist industry. Not only does it offer attractions for water lovers, but nature enthusiasts will adore the nursery and conservation areas within the park.

Rather than disrupting the ecosystem, the park is incorporated into the land and hosts a litany of research and conservation programs.

Admission to this water wonderland begins at $80 USD and includes unlimited snorkeling and equipment, breakfast and lunch, and access to 21 park attractions. There are also deals on their website that offer a considerable discount.

Some may think this a steep price, but considering the food and attractions, it is beyond reasonable. Families benefit with entrance being 50% off for children 5-11. There are also 11 additional paid attractions such as zip-biking and scuba diving. You most likely will not be able to complete all of the attractions in one day because you will find yourself wanting to bask in the glory of the park itself.
