Xel-Há, further south to Playacar, it’s more than an archeological site, it’s a universe dedicated to ecology and the endemic fauna and flora protection. Its name means “origin of water” or “where water is born”.
In prehispanic times, the site was used by the Mayas as a port and was a focal point for merchandise traffic in the Caribbean Sea.
Legend says Xel-Há was created by the Mayan gods, who combined love and wisdom to give life to one of the most marvelous corners on Earth, making parrot fish and iguanas their guardians.
It’s a beautiful experience to swim inside a natural aquarium where the ocean joins the underground river and freshwater lagoons, snorkel between schools of colorful fish, venture into the jungle and find sacred cenotes, riding a bicycle through the lush nature and afterwards enjoy a soothing siesta in the hammocks.
