Tulum and Xel-Há Day Trip

  • English English
  • 13 hours
  • Hotel pick up

Xel-Há is considered the largest natural aquarium in the world, and it's catalogued as one of the 13 Natural Wonders of Mexico. On this tour you can also visit Tulum, the most photographed archaeological site in the country.

Itinerary

Picking you up first thing in the morning, we'll head to Tulum, the ancient Mayan city and one of the peninsula's most popular tourist attractions with spectacular views looking out onto the Carribean Sea.

The direction of an official guide will illuminate the long and storied history of the site as we pass through the Tulum ruins. The walled city was constructed by the Mayans, and we'll visit the construction known as "The Castle" for its impressive and imposing size and the Temple of the Descending God, associated with the Mayan God of the Bees, symbolising a link to the spirit world. You will then have an hour of free time to swim and really enjoy some of the best beaches in all of Mexico.

And before heading to Xel-Há, a natural paradise where you'll be able to snorkel, snuba something between snorkelling and diving) or Sea Trek (walking underwater with special masks which need no prior diving knowledge).

After a day in the Xel-Há adventure park we'll take you back to the hotels of the Riviera Maya.
