This aquatic wonderland counts itself as the world’s largest natural aquarium. Thanks to a unique inlet where fresh water and salt water collide, it’s a haven for all sorts of underwater lodgers. We’re talking schools of neon fish and rare sea turtles, swimming in and out of multicoloured coral formations. What’s more, Xel-Ha offers up an elaborate network of underground rivers, fresh springs and tropical lagoons, so it goes without saying it’s a major player on the snorkelling and scuba diving scene. Once you’ve been given a guided tour of the place, you’ll have plenty of free time to take a dip, explore the surrounding jungle pathways, or relax next to the pristine lagoon. Lunch is included, too. Take your pick from the Mexican restaurant or the shorefront barbecue grill.
It's a 45-minute boat ride and 45-minute coach ride to Xel-Ha. Towels and lockers are available with a refundable deposit.
