Xel-Há, an Eden created by the Mayan gods.
Legend has it that the Mayan gods while combining their knowledge, dreams, purity and perfection, created a paradise where they got together the best of nature and themselves. They called it Xel-Há. "Xel" means "spring water" in Maya, or "place where something is born", and "Há" means water, therefore Xel-Há is "the place where waters are born".
The gods designated the iguana, the macaw and the parrotfish to look after the earth, the sky and the water and they were named "Xel-Há's guardians." Once created, the gods were so pleased with the place that they decided to allow the entrance to humans.
With turquoise waters as a scenario, Xel-Há is a unique set of inlets, lagoons and cenotes, arising from the longest underground river in the world. The world's most beautiful natural aquarium, a place to fill your senses with the wonderful colours of tropical fish and stunning marine vegetation that inhabits the inlet.
