Swim, Bike, Zip

June 25, 2015

If you're done laying on the beach and soaking up the sun, and are looking for a day crammed with fun activities, then it's time to check out Xel-Ha, a sustainable tourism development that preserves the natural ecosystem of the Riviera Maya while at the same time encouraging visitors to interact with it. Located about a mile and a half from our Playa del Carmen resort, at Xel-Ha you can snorkel, dive, swim with dolphins and rays, go cliff-diving, explore underwater caves, ride a zip-line, hike or bike through jungle trails, and even meet some manatees. At Xel-Ha, the only difficult thing is deciding what to do first! And after you've worn yourself out, the beach will be waiting right where you left it.
