Depart from Cozumel’s Main Pier (ferry ticket not included) to sail to the Mexican mainland. Climb aboard a comfortable minivan before cruising to the sacred paradise of Xcaret to discover the sublime region hailed by ancient Mayans as a tropical paradise.
Awaken your senses to the alluring attractions of the natural park as you wander through a variety of areas; admire the bounteous flora and fauna on guided walks through the wonderland, focusing on the diverse beauty of the botanical garden as you hunt for Mayan ruins.
Next, discover the dazzling wildlife in the aviary, the aquarium and the butterfly farm, marveling at the complex physiology of incredible creatures. See, too, the excellent exhibition of scale models depicting significant structures of the Yucatan.
Refresh and revitalize in the crystal clear waters of a freshwater lagoon; discover troves of tropical fish in natural inlets; or sink into the silken sands of a beach to enjoy some rest and relaxation. After a time of tranquility, satisfy a craving for adventure with a gentle ride down the underground river; journey through subterranean caverns past mysterious crevices and natural rock formations as you follow the current.
Return to the pier at 6pm, unless you wish to stay for the park’s spellbinding night show. Watch in wonder as the ancient world of Mayan Mexico is brought to life through color, light and sound for a truly unforgettable experience. Return to the ferry in your comfortable minivan at 9pm, where the tour concludes.
