    What to Expect
    Depart from your Playa del Carmen hotel to begin your exhilarating excursion to the enchanting location of Xcaret. Enjoy the scenery on this short 15-minute ride to the ancient Mayan ceremonial site. 

    Descend to subterranean depths beneath the jungle to explore the sprawling limestone caverns. Navigate the underground labyrinth alongside an experienced guide, encountering diverse wildlife such as macaws, raccoons and monkeys as you explore. Listen to captivating tales of ancient rituals before emerging into the bright sunlight at Mayan Village, a historical hub that explains Mayan customs, social dynamics and village infrastructures.   

    Enjoy a serene stroll down a peaceful trail, stopping to marvel at interesting archeological sights as you walk. Awaken your senses to the sweet aromas of the orchid garden before immersing yourself in the colorful charm of the butterfly pavilion and coral reef aquarium. 

    Revitalise in the refreshing waters of a natural inlet or don snorkelling gear to explore the marine life that resides in the crystal clear pools beside the ocean. Dry off beneath the soothing shade of a palm tree or upon the silken sands of a natural beach. 

    As the sun begins to set, either return to your Playa del Carmen hotel or stay for the sparkling spectacle of the Xcaret Mexico Espectacular, an exuberant show in which over 300 vibrant performers depict Mexican and Mayan history throughout the ages. Admire traditional costumes and vivacious dances during this unforgettable experience. Return to your comfortable minivan after the show’s conclusion for your comfortable journey back to your Playa del Carmen hotel. 

    Xcaret Plus Option:

    Upgrade your Xcarat tour to enjoy the following additions to your expedition: a delicious buffet lunch served with zesty orange juice and lemonade; snorkelling gear and the use of Plus Xcaret’s exclusive facilities; private showers and changing room facilities.

    Lots to do worth going when the locals are not on holiday as it becomes very crowded. Very well created and lots of fun for the kids. Food expensive so bring your own, including water. The Rock slide was amazing.
