Top 3 Experiences
Go to an Authentic Mexican Fiesta!
Xochimilco is a popular tourist attraction in central Mexico, and now Experiencias Xcaret has created its own version right in Cancun, just five minutes from the airport. At Xoximilco visitors enjoy the best of Mexican cuisine, music and culture while riding on “trajineras”, colorfully decorated gondola-like boats. All courses and aguas frescas (fresh fruit drinks), beer, tequila and soft drinks are included. The tour culminates with all trajineras gathering together for a lively party. This is a fun, one-of-a kind tour that hightlights the best that Mexico has to offer.
Discover the Mayans!
Another popular Mayan ruin site, Tulum is located a bit closer to Cancun than Chichen Itza, roughly 2 hours south. This is a smaller site and can be seen in about an hour but it’s worth the trip simply for the breathtaking views. The Mayans knew good real estate when they saw it and the main pyramid of Tulum sits on a cliff above an amazing beach. Once a major port for the Mayan empire, the ruins site is the main attraction of the growing town. Tulum also boasts a downtown area (Tulum pueblo) and a bohemian “hotel zone” with relaxed cabana hotels and open-air eateries.
This eco-park is part of the Experiencias Xcaret family. Xel-Ha boasts the “largest, most beautiful natural aquarium in the world”. You can swim in grottos & cenotes (natural sinkholes)and see local sea life, explore Mayan ruins, jump off the Stone of Courage, cross the floating bridge, ride bikes or fly kites. There are plenty of other activities and exhibits to keep you occupied for the entire day or you can simply spend your time relaxing in the sun or napping in a seaside hammock.
