A theme park that can be equaled to Mexico's "eco-park" version of Disneyland, Xcaret has natural and cultural attractions for visitors to the Riviera Maya region. The river that flows through the Mayan ruins and the subterranean river in Xcaret park offer swimming and snorkeling, coral reef diving, and dolphin encounters. See the turtle nesting site, manatees, butterfly pavilion, bat cave, island of jaguars, and the orchid greenhouse among many sites that make up the diverse eco-park.

The cultural activities in Xcaret also make it a premier attraction for tourists. The replica of a Mayan village, the colorful Mexican cemetery, and the Papantla Flying Men illustrate the cultural blending of Spanish and Mexican traditions. The resort culture of Cancun has traveled down the coast to Xcaret, so expect luxury accommodations and evening entertainment, including an ancient Mayan ceremony show of Vegas proportions.

Practical Info

Xcaret Park and archeological zone has the perfect balance of historic ruins, nature adventures, resort luxury, and cultural excursions that give the eco-park its unique feel. Xcaret is also known for its celebrations around Day of the Dead and the "Travesia Sagrada Maya," the Mayan Sacred Crossing to Playa del Carmen and Cozumel to honor the lunar goddess Ix Chel in late May.
