Trip Planner: Mexico / Yucatan Peninsula / Quintana Roo / Riviera Maya / Playa del Carmen / Xcaret Park
Take a short drive out of Cancun to Xcaret 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.

The prices were great! Also by CST, we made airport transfers to hotels, Cancun to Carmen and the tours. They were extremely professional, attentive and punctual. Vans and buses clean and in a great state of preservation. The park offers many options for all ages and tastes. The Super package (which includes lunch) has great cost benefit. Highlights: 1-swim through the underground Rivers 2-interesting the church and the old farmhouse with all the decoration of the season. 3-Climb the rotating tower to see the whole park from the top. 4-The Great closing show at night.
