Xelha is an archaeological site of the Maya civilization, located on the eastern coastline of the Yucat√°n Peninsula, in the present-day state of Quintana Roo, Mexico. 

The etymology of the site's name comes from Yukatek Maya, combining the roots xel ("spring") and ha' ("water").

from their website:
Xel-Ha, one of the amazing attractions in Cancun, Riviera Maya, Mexico, a natural aquarium park considered the largest aquarium in the world, the perfect place to perform activities in Riviera Maya. If you love nature, there is no better place than Xel-Ha to practice snorkeling and water activities like swimming with dolphins, Snuba (combination of snorkeling and diving) or Sea Trek (walking under water).
