Xcaret Tours

Only an hour from Cancun, Xcaret is one of the many natural eco parks within touching distance and a popular tour to take. An underground river journey takes you for over a kilometer to emerge next to the gorgeous Xcaret beach. Explore the park, see turtles, the aquarium, big cats, butterfly pavilion and swim with dolphins. Stay into the evening for a chance to see the ancient Mayan 'football' game and a show in the amphitheater that gives an insight into Mexican culture.

Surrounded by tropical jungle and wildlife you can laze in the natural lagoon. Hundreds of brightly colored tropical fish and the sound of birds floating on the air from nearby islands makes Xcaret a natural paradise. Easy access to the water for children and physically challenged makes this fun for all.

Xcaret has two naturally occurring underground rivers. The cold water provides a sharp contrast to that of the sea and is an ideal way to start off your day. Life jackets and locking bags are provided at the river entrance and your belongings will be transported by donkey to await you at the end of your swim. There are many exits and stopping points along each river so it is easy to take a break and either rest or explore. Even non swimmers will enjoy this.

Full range of Xcaret tour options:

Xcaret has a fantastic aquarium which educates you about various types of reefs and their importance, along with plenty of fish. Saltwater flows freely between the aquarium and the Caribbean, bringing along a variety of marine life. Great for kids.

For an additional charge certified open water divers will enjoy diving Barracuda Reef or the sunken wreck "Mama Viña". If you’re not certified but want to learn you could join the professional dive masters for a resort course and take the plunge. For something slightly different try Snuba - diving without a tank or Sea Trek - diving for the non-swimmer, yes really! Experience the underwater world with fun and safety.

Xcaret offers the opportunity to swim with dolphins for an additional charge, varying programs and prices are available. It is strongly recommended that these are booked in advance. With a typical ratio of 4 persons to each dolphin, if you try and book this on arrival at Xcaret you are likely to be disappointed particularly during peak season.
