Tour overview

We begin at the archaeological site of Tulum, the only walled Mayan city, located on a cliff where visitors can enjoy a beautiful view of the turquoise blue Mexican Caribbean Sea. The tour continues with a visit to Xel-Ha, which is considered the largest natural aquarium in the world where tropical fish swim among countless rock formations and in underwater caves.

Xel-Ha has been honored by the International Association of Amusement Parks and is a "Must See Waterpark". In 2005, two parks in the U.S. received this award and only one was granted to a park outside the United States. Xel-Ha is a Mexican-owned park.
