Our natural park, Xcaret, brings you the best of all that’s related to Mexican tradition and culture. This is a place where beauty, nature and cultural wealth meet in a heavenly location. It is located just 45 minutes away from Cancún, Mexico, inside the Riviera Maya. At Xcaret, you are a spectator to underground rivers, natural pools and infinity of marvellous attractions that promise nothing less but memorable times. Our structure is one of its kind, to the extent where you can have one of the very rare experiences of observing the first Mariposario (butterfly Pavilion) and a Coral Reef Aquarium undisturbed from their natural habitat.
At Xcaret you can also sit and watch as we bring to you festivals and ceremonies, dubbed as Intangible Human Heritage by UNESCO featuring the famous ceremony of Flying Men of Papantla, the celebration of the Day of the Dead, the mariachi as well as a delicious touch of Mexican cuisine.
As night falls, more than 300 actors will be waiting for you to join them on a musical voyage through our heritage. It is a bursting sensation of light and colour bringing you the best of Mexican culture and history. Come and be part of this moveable feast, and enjoy the cultural heritage and love for the environment through the knowledge and coexistence!
