Undoubtedly one of the triathlons with the most followers is the Xel-Ha Triathlon in its Sprint and Olympic categories.

Undoubtedly the most fun and daring obstacle course you’ll ever experience. The point is to cross to the other side of the island with the most flags… okay, but it’s not so simple.  The “running lava” will do everything possible to strip you of your flags. Get ready to run 5kms where you will jump, run, crawl, muddle, and of course have fun.  Not to mention the underground and jungle environment of Xplor will transport you to another universe.

As you can see, the Riviera Maya is extremely attractive for all champions, big and small, who seek to do their best in every race, every obstacle,  and every competition. Are you ready to accept the challenge? Book your stay with us today. Click here.
