Manatee Xel-Há, Cancun Activities

In 2008, as part of a rescue by federal authorities in Tabasco, 2 specimens of manatees were delivered into the custody of Xcaret and then became part of Xel-Há's family. Here, manatees receive veterinary care, feeding according to their age and weight, and are monitored around the clock. Manatees are part of a research project of organisms in captivity as they are an endangered species in Mexico and the Caribbean. As a result of the care received in the park, a manatee was born in captivity.

In Xel-Ha, you can swim with these amazing ancient creatures that communicate with the universal language of glances. Know the labour of Xel-Ha for their protection and care.
