This is a great combination of the Mayan history at the Tulum ruins, an archaeological zone overlooking the beautiful Caribbean Sea, and the natural beauty of Xel-ha with its crystal clear, natural aquarium waters. Ideal for snorkeling!
This great combo gives you the best of both worlds. We'll start with the Mayan history of Tulum, the only archaeological zone in the area with views of the sea, followed by snorkeling and other fun water activities at Xel-Ha Inlet, a crystal clear natural aquarium home to many species of fish.
The ruins of Tulum are perched high atop a cliff, against the awe inspiring backdrop of the Caribbean Sea. This archaeological site is one-of-a-kind. Tulum flourished in late Post-classical times with buildings dating back to the 12th century. It was once an important trading port, one of the few Mayan cities still inhabited when the Spaniards arrived. You will take a guided tour of the ruins to learn about the secrets of the Mayans. Your guide will point out important sites, explaining the historical significance of buildings such as the Castle, the Temple of the Masks and the God Chaac.
Then we will drive 20 minutes north to an incredible aquatic park created by the Mayan gods themselves: Xel-Ha. This special place gathers the best of the Mexican Caribbean all in one place. Enjoy nature through the crystal clear waters of this spectacular natural aquarium. An environment of creeks, lagoons, natural wells and ancient caves is fed by underground rivers flowing out to the beautiful Caribbean Sea. Explore the underwater world by snorkel to come face to face with exotic underwater flora and fauna such as curious rays and French angel fish.
We will leave Xel-Ha at 5:00pm when the park closes.
