Xcaret Eco Theme Park, Playa del Carmen
(4/5 based on 24,000+ reviews on the web)
Take a short drive out of Cancun to Xcaret Eco Theme Park, where ecologically oriented activities cater to visitors of all ages. The theme park gets its name from a nearby settlement once inhabited by the pre-Columbian Maya, and some of the original village's structures remain. The park's 81 hectare (20 acre) grounds also contain a coral reef aquarium, bird and butterfly pavilions, bat cave, deer shelter, and a greenhouse designed to protect and display delicate orchids and bromeliads. Aiming to entertain both adults and children, the park's nature-based activities include snorkeling with sea turtles and swimming with dolphins. Check the official website for ticket discounts and a complete listing of special performances and family-friendly activities.

  • Looked in the Park show the history of Mexico. Uniquely 5 points. I advise you to be seated in the upper grandstand-from there you can see all much better representation. On the territory of many shops/bars/cafes, there is an ATM machine.

  • Wonderful park. Be very careful because the "all inclusive" sold around did not one, many activities are paying and sometimes very expensive. It takes the day to fire the round of all animals quietly. It's really a nice meeting with animals magic, rarity, size, etc... Everything is there... The side business doing a little "task" should change.

  • I didn't have very high expectations, as I'm not an amusement park person. This really was fantastic - something for everyone. Appreciated the motorcart rental - made our trip possible.
