Xcaret is an unforgettable playground with many different attractions that celebrate the Mexican culture and honor its natural beauty and wonder. Just minutes from Cancún, you’ll find getting to Xcaret is convenient and a perfect way to experience the diversity Mexico has to offer in one spectacular destination. Find yourself surrounded by clouds of color in the Butterfly Pavilion or marvel in the graceful beauty of more than 44 species of tropical birds in the Wild Bird Aviary. Paradise is always in bloom at the Orchids Greenhouse where botanical experts grow 89 of the world’s 105 species from the Maya region.
Come to Jaguar Island to get an up-close introduction to these impressive animals known as the symbol of the Mayan jungle. Out of the jungle and into the sea, Xcaret also features a wonderful Coral Reef Aquarium. It’s home to more than 500 reef structures showcasing the diversity of the Caribbean.
For a daring adventure, come explore the caves below the Riviera Maya. Twists and turns amid underground rivers and wildlife encounters will lead you to a Mayan Village where you can immerse yourself in ancient traditions and heritage.

"XCaret" — 03/18/2018
A great family oriented way to spend the day. Something for everyone. We enjoyed snorkelling in the underground river. There are pockets of daylight sections and steps if you get nervous and want to exit. Dining on the beach at the restaurant there with another family was fun. Enjoyed walking through the hacienda. Saw the show in the evening and it was worth it.
