1. Slides 40 m high: Lighthouse Mirador de Xel-Há

The famous Xcaret Natural Park is perfect for a family day out, but did it tell you about its emotional ending? Don’t worry, I’m not going to spoil anything for you, but what awaits you at Xcaret México Espectacular is a waste of impressive talent.

Few things excite us as much in southeastern Mexico as the hammocks. Many may talk about them in relation to a nap and rest, but few associate it with extreme activities. This is a unique opportunity to have The most original nail in history. The best thing is that thanks to the use of helmets and other safety, this activity is suitable even for the little ones. We recommend that you consult the activity traffic light located in the center of Xplor, as it is the best way to optimize time. No one wants to miss out on delicious grilled food.
Fly on a night zip line: Xplor Fire
Xplor is the most visited zip line park in the world and its constant innovation has a lot to do with it. Between torches and a hoop of fire, this park manages to transform with the help of the flames. Slipping through the darkness of the rainforest can be a more than liberating experience, totally unrepeatable! Many visitors prefer Xplor Fuego for its extravagant atmosphere and cozy colors, but you should definitely live both experiences, even once. If you are doing well in the dark, this should be on your list of best excursions in Riviera Maya.

Kayak in cenotes: Xenotes
Activities in communion with nature can sometimes be of great impact. Kayaking is the perfect combination between contemplation and body activation. So sign me up! Comfortable clothing is mandatory, can be in constant motion and fun not for Xenotes guides.
I recommend you mentalize for a day of disconnection … Sometimes getting a signal is tricky, but I’ll be very busy discovering all the charm of ancestral cenotes. Other surprises waiting inside the tour: abseiling, zip lines, slides and snorkeling. The use of a vest is mandatory during the day, but it is definitely part of the adventurous outfit.
Here we tell you what clothes to wear for the Xenotes Tour.
Play the touches on a trajinera: Xoximilco Cancún
The full tour lasts approximately 3 hours (including traditional food and dessert), which may seem small, but no one knows how to get away with playing the seconds as a Xoximilco Cancun team. As your safety comes first, purchasing round-trip transportation is a great option, but if you’re staying in Cancun, a taxi isn’t a bad idea either.
A ritual very difficult to explain to the rest of the world, but of course the attempts: imagine being part of a floating party, aboard a trajinera, with free bar and live music. Throughout the sailing, you will have many invitations to participate in Mexican games organized by the compadres. The touches are definitely the favorites. It is not as painful as one might think, but a challenge that requires a lot of courage and guarantees laughter on board.
Original memories: Xenses
Whoever said a picture is worth a thousand words, surely understood the package of photos on his visit to Xenses. This is the favorite park of those who love short but impactful walks. You can spend hours capturing the best optical illusions with your friends or exploring confusing scenarios and completely out of the ordinary.
