Gay Travel Guide – Xel-Ha

By Ricardo D Argence

Many years before, the city of Xel-Ha was known to be a very important place as all the Mayan people came together where they performed certain dances and rituals in order to respect their Gods – the Gods of Mayan mythology. But a lot has changed. These days, Xel-Ha is one of the biggest aquariums around and a marvelous snorkeling spot. Most people come here to snorkel because it offers such an amazing experience.

Xel-Ha or Xelha is a popular site, known to be archaeological, and can be found on the Yucatan Peninsula, Quintana Roo, in Mexico. It is a very beautiful place, almost tropical. The seas are bright blue/green in color and make you just want to dive into the freshness. If all seas could look this way, one wouldn’t think twice about going for a swim.

Xel-Ha is situated about seventy-five miles south of the city Cancun. In order to get there, one is able to rent a car or take a bus or a taxi. If you use a method of public transport to get to the area, free transportation into the park is provided for all. So you don’t need to worry about getting right to the park from the highway.

Xel-Ha has some of the most amazing water activities for adults as well as children. In these incredible seas you can have fun on the kayaks; you can go to Aquaventura, Sea Trek, Snuba or go snorkeling. Besides all the water activities, there is a lot of land for you to explore. There are fascinating caves, deep lagoons, inviting coves, and many more sites for you to see.

If you prefer walking, there are wooden bridges and marked paths that will take you through everything, but if you would rather sit back and enjoy the ride there is a captivating train ride that takes you around to see everything. There are sites in this city that will make you wish you came to see them long ago. Take a step back into history to understand what you see and hear while in Xel-Ha.

Some interesting information about this wonderful city is; legend has it that the city was born during the time that the Mayan Gods united all their love, fantasies and shrewdness together in order to create such an area that will bring all nature’s greatness together. This is why all natural attributes to this area are so magnificently beautiful; they come from thousands of years ago. Some believe this, while others choose to think of it as nothing more than a myth.

There are different fees that need to be paid in order to gain access into the park, but it is not expensive and it differs. Children pay less than adults. It is worth any amount you have to pay. The sites you get to see once inside are amazing and you will not be sorry that you came all this way.

Xel-Ha is a must see for anyone and everyone that enjoys good history and beautiful scenery. Be sure to take your camera along. You will want to take these memories home with you!
