Here, you’ll uncover an array of eco-adventures, cultural immersion and delectable cuisine. It’s impossible to sum up the embarrassment of riches available at Xcaret – but here are just a handful of “Xperiences” you won’t want to miss.
Discover Mexican Traditions
Xcaret Park can be a trip back in time. The wonders of Mexican culture are on full-display here. Visit the Mayan village to enjoy traditional music and dance amongst underground rivers. Witness the mysterious Owl Dance in a natural grotto. Purify yourself during the ancestral ritual of temazcal. And marvel as the Voladores de Papantla fly through the air above the crowd.
Fly Above The Park
Have an elevated experience at Xcaret … literally. A parasailing adventure here will send you soaring high above the sea and jungle – 600 feet high to be exact. The views are spectacular, and the adrenaline rush is unparalleled.
Get ready for some high-speed thrills and climb aboard a motorboat that zooms across the Caribbean Sea at speeds up to 90 kilometers per hour (55 mph), performing dizzying 360° turns. A word of warning, though: you will get wet!
Float Down Paradise River
They call it Paradise River for a reason. This gorgeous waterway offers stunning scenery as you float gently onboard a comfortable raft. Don’t get too comfortable, though – you’ll want to keep an eye out for wildlife, including blue crabs, iguanas, peccaries and other friendly creatures.
Snorkel with the Stingrays
This one is a perfect (and perfectly safe) aquatic activity for kids. They’ll learn all about the amazing stingrays who call Xcaret home – and then get to interact with them in a tranquil natural lagoon.
Enjoy Authentic Cuisine and Spectacular Performances
Bring your appetite to Xcaret. The El Gran Tlacho theatre offers an elaborate seven-course dinner that presents the diverse and delicious flavors of Mexico. While you eat, you’ll also have front-row seats for the Xcaret México Espectacular, a thrilling journey through history, with more than 300 artists on stage.
Go For a Dolphin Ride
Ever dreamed of getting up-close-and-personal with a dolphin? Xcaret Park can make that dream come true. In a respectful, guided experience, you’ll be able to make a new friend or two as you receive dolphin kisses, see fun fin shakes and even go for a ride through the water with one of these magnificent mammals.
Indulge and Refresh
It’s not all about excitement and adventure in Xcaret Park. Located in an evocative cave, the Xpá is an otherworldly relaxation location offering sumptuous massages, amidst shimmering waters and gentle waterfalls. Inner peace is within reach.
Swim with Sharks
Don’t worry, this isn’t Jaws. Xcaret lets you immerse yourself in the world of nurse sharks – gentle giants who only feed on mollusks and other small species. During this unforgettable experience a trainer will always accompany you as you swim in the natural environment of the nurse shark.
Climb to the Top of Xcaret
Is this the best view in all of Mexico? Maybe! Rising more than 250 feet above the park, Xcaret’s Rotating Scenic Tower gives you a birds-eye panoramic view of the sparkling Caribbean Sea and the surrounding jungle. It’s a sight you’ll be recalling with fondness for the rest of your life.
