Experience an unforgettable day at Xcaret - the most exciting and largest eco park in Latin America! This eco-archeological park offers a wealth of exhilarating activities in a tropical jungle setting on the Caribbean Sea. It is pure fun and enjoyment in a natural setting.
Leaving your cruise ship behind, you will travel by ferry to the mainland and Playa del Carmen, where your guide will escort you to your coach for the short transfer to Xcaret. You are on your own to explore and experience the park to its fullest at your own pace. There is an abundance of things to see and do here, such as a museum, a bird sanctuary, stables, botanical gardens, an aquarium, restored Mayan ruins, a replicated Mayan village, stunningly beautiful beaches and natural pools. As you stroll about the grounds you can view wild animals in their natural habitats and turning a corner, find yourself at the butterfly pavilion, surrounded by thousands of free-flying butterflies.
A must activity during your visit is a swim in the underground river (life vest is included). Flow with the current through these cool waters that take you along on an amazing journey through an underground cavern. You may participate in this independently or an optional guided tour is available at an additional cost.
