Cancun is well-known for its tropical beaches, warm waters, and sunny climate, and its many water parks are the perfect way to enjoy a day of water activities with the whole family. Here are the best places to enjoy waterslides, zip lines, and more.

Xel-Ha
This aquatic theme park allows visitors to experience snorkeling, cenotes, cave spelunking, and more all at a single site that’s one big natural aquarium. The kid-friendly park also has a hidden beach and native wildlife. Some full-day tours combine a visit with entrance to other parks and a visit to Chichen Itza. Choose an all-inclusive day trip from Cancun for included transportation, food and drinks, use of snorkel equipment, and more.

Xcaret
An eco-archaeological park located in the Riviera Maya, Xcaret incorporates Maya history and culture into more than 40 attractions. Visitors can swim in its coral reef aquarium and underground rivers, enjoying the wildlife of the Caribbean Sea. Ensure entry by prebooking a ticket, and upgrade for a buffet lunch, unlimited soft drinks, and use of snorkeling equipment.

Xplor
This adventure park is great for eco-conscious adrenaline junkies, as its many zip lines are surrounded by rain forest, rivers, and natural pools. It’s easily accessible from Cancun and Playa del Carmen, from where full-day tours typically include hotel pickup and dropoff.

Ventura Park
An oceanfront amusement park, Ventura Park Cancun has many thrilling attractions, including waterslides, a wave pool, and a waterslide park called Wet'n Wild.

Rio Secreto
This nature reserve is home to some of the most spectacular underground rivers and caves on the Yucatan Peninsula. A visit allows for the tranquil experience of floating down the below-ground river while viewing the crystal-like formations of the cave ceilings and floors. Book ahead of time and choose a tour with hotel pickup for a seamless experience.
