A unique combination of zoo, museum and amusement park, Xcaret provides a one-stop entertainment shop for every visitor. Enjoy hotel pickup from Playa del Carmen and the 15-minute ride to the modern eco-archeological park.
Mayans held sacred rites at Xcaret, meaning ‘small inlet,’ for more than 1,000 years. It is believed they engaged in cleansing rituals in the underground limestone caverns here before canoeing to the island of Cozumel to pray to the goddess of fertility and childbirth.
Explore these caverns that sprawl beneath the jungle of the Riviera Maya. Wander through the underground maze and run into rivers and local wildlife, such as deer, monkeys, raccoons and macaws. Solve your way out of the labyrinth and find yourself at Mayan Village, where you’ll learn about the ancient Mayans’ societal norms, family dynamics, home construction and village infrastructure.
Walk along a peaceful trail and visit archaeological sites, or stroll through the orchid garden. Take delight in the wildlife wonders at the coral reef aquarium, aviary and butterfly pavilion.
Cool off with a swim in the inlet lagoon, or snorkel in warm clear pools and greet sea turtles. Then dry off on a natural beach under the shade of a palapa.
Return to your hotel at the end of the day, or stay until after the sun sets. Complete your Xcaret visit by attending the popular Xcaret México Espectacular, a night show featuring more than 300 performers in traditional costumes who act and dance their way through Mayan and Mexican history and culture from pre-Columbian times to present day. After the show, bus transport will be waiting to take you back to your Cancun hotel.
