It is the largest and most-visited water amusement park in the country. The park covers an area of 77,300 m³ and is thematically designed around a recreation of a Mayan pyramid.

The park contains four different pools and two different wave pools, one for children and one for adults. It also features different kinds of waves and a beach designed resting area as well as the Tumala river tube and the "Rapidos de Xocomil" which features five different options of speed slides in a 148 m ride. Other attractions include the "El Caracol" which takes riders through a dark tunnel that propels them into a big funnel and "Nido de Serpientes" which has 7 different courses of twisting flumes. Along most of the tubes are items such as Mayan masks and items which represent Guatemala's Mayan heritage.
