Itinerary

For your All Inclusive Day at Xel-ha & Dolphin Swim you’ll be picked up from your hotel in Cancun in a comfortable coach and whisked to the Xel-ha Park where you’ll embark on a day of fun and adventure.

Once at the Park, you should confirm your Dolphin Swim time at the Tickets Counter or with the tour guide. Then you are free to explore the wonders of Xel-ha natural aquarium at leisure. You’ll be able to snorkel next to an assortment of tropical plants and hundreds of fish in the natural Caribbean waters, explore the underground Mayan caves, sit back on a floating tyre on the lazy river or kick back in a hammock overlooking some spectacular views.

Your swim and interaction session with the dolphins will take place for 1 hour. During the session you can swim, play and jump with the dolphins – they’ll even give you a foot push!

If hungry you can indulge in a breakfast buffet (9:00am - 11:00am) snacks buffet (starting at 11:00am). For lunch there is a huge choice. You’ll find different restaurants offering variously international-cuisine (meat, fish, pasta, salads, fruit, desserts), or Mexican foods or snacks such as pizza and French fries.

You can also keep yourself refreshed with unlimited drinks (coffee, soft drinks, juices, water) and an open bar with domestic alcohol.

Your guide will tell you the time and place to meet to catch your return transport. After this unforgettable day, you’ll be dropped-off back at your hotel in Cancun at approximately 7:00pm.
