The Magical World of Xcaret
Riviera Maya's popular archaeological park, Xcaret is where Mexican culture, history, and the ecological diversity for which the area is known are highlighted in one entertaining package. You’ll find a vast slate of eco-adventures such as snorkeling in cenotes, swimming with dolphins, horseback riding, scuba diving, bird watching and basic beach pleasures. Or if you prefer, transport yourself to the secret world of the ancient Maya, visiting jungle-studded archaeological sites, and a replica of a Maya village, which showcases daily life, including a demonstration of the legendary, 2,000-year-old Maya ball game called pok-ta-pok. When night falls, dancers in the Gran Tlachco amphitheater stage a magical tour of Mexico from mythical Maya ceremonies through the Spanish conquest to modern Mexico. Book seats in the dining area and indulge in a three-course meal while viewing the brilliant musical spectacle.
