Using the natural surrounding of Mexico's Riviera Maya, Xenses Park lets visitors lose themselves in the sounds and sights of optical illusions. The park's vision involves the fascinating neurological phenomena known as synesthesia, where a single sense has the ability to suddenly stimulate another. Colors seem to be heard, sounds felt and smells seem to be tasted.
At Xenses Park, waterfalls thunder by underground labyrinths and ziplines crisscross the trees, while pools, water slides and animal exhibits accompany 3D movies. Throughout a half-day experience, travelers will take delight in questioning what is real and what is instead just a product of stimulated senses. Opened in 2016, Xenses Park allows visitors to experience something outside the norm of regular, adrenaline-fueled theme parks, and pair the adventure with mind-bending features that must be seen to be believed.
Xenses Park can be visited on tours from both Cancun and Playa del Carmen. It is three miles from Playa del Carmen and 45 miles from Cancun, while offering free parking for travelers who choose to visit the park on their own. All travelers should bring a swimsuit or clothes they don't mind getting wet. Some activities, such as ziplines, may have height or weight requirements.
