Quintana Roo, México (PRWEB) June 29, 2012
Xel-Ha, Quintana Roo-. With the arrival of summer, Xel-Ha Park, located in the Riviera Maya, promotes its new activity: interaction with stingrays. Xel-Ha is the only place in Mexico where visitors can swim with stingrays that live in the Park’s inlet, but are not in captivity.
The new and exciting attraction offers visitors a unique opportunity to live an activity different from those shown in other places, as these animals, despite having an unusual appearance, are completely harmless and a friendly species. Visitors can touch them, feed them and if they wish, hold them and most importantly, learn about the lives of these wonderful creatures.
Professional instructors will provide guests with information in a fun way about their defense mechanisms, and its similarities to other species like the sharks. Visitors have about 30 minutes of interaction with the stingrays.
Each ray that participates in the activity has a Mayan name making reference to the ancient civilization that inhabited the area where the park is located now. Guests who partake in the interaction can learn about Bo´´ox whose name means dark skin in Maya or meet Ki'in which means sun.
The goal of the attraction is for guests to leave with a message of conservation and protection of the stingrays, considered an endangered species.
