Xpu-Ha whose meaning in Maya is “estuary of two waters”, is a fascinating beach whose depth is only half a meter, where you can practice sports ranging from scuba diving to kayaking, because there’s almost no waves and the sun gives a crystalline sense. Its crystal clear waters are perfect for swimming and snorkeling adventure at the nearby reef patches.
