Dive Deep Into Mayan Heritage at Xcaret

In Play, Playa del Carmen & Tulum by Suzanne Koch

The ultimate adventure, Xcaret Park, which in Mayan means “small inlet,” is an eco-archaeological, family theme park filled with countless activities, entertainment and Mayan heritage. Explore over 50 thrilling attractions including river cruises, archeological sites and cultural performances and activities. A scenic tower offers guests panoramic views of the park and the Caribbean Sea, while on the ground feel free to explore archaeological sites, Mayan caverns and villages, or jump onto a river raft to cruise down Paradise River.


For the more adventurous, water excursions are a plenty. Snorkel through the underground rivers which are part of a natural network of channels that circulate under the Yucatan Peninsula or hop on Adrenalina, a fast and thrilling aquatic adventure in a high speed boat. Dolphin rides, shark swims, stingray encounters, snorkel tours, snuba dives and water walks are among the many other adventures awaiting you at Xcaret.

For those who’d rather stay dry or simply need a breather, enjoy attractions like the butterfly pavilions, a greenhouse, marine turtles, a jaguar island or fun, cultural performances like equestrian shows, prehispanic performances or Voladores de Papantla. Afterwards fill up on traditional Mexican and international cuisine before enjoying “Xcaret Mexico Espectacular,” a history of Mexico told through the celebration of light and color with 300 artists.
