Xcaret Park

Xcaret means "small inlet” due to the fact that a portion of the Caribbean Sea enters the land, but now days, it's so much more than that! Xcaret Park is a water park, theme park, and an eco-archaeological location all wrapped up in one. Due to its location in the Mayan jungle, you'll find underground rivers and cenotes, and it's a stone's throw from the Caribbean Sea. The Xcaret eco-park showcases the best of Mexican history and culture, and is packed with thrilling rides, dazzling live performances, archaeological wonders, and sumptuous traditional food.
