Xplor’s history began 65 million years ago when a 10 km-diameter asteroid crossed through the Earth’s atmosphere and struck the Yucatan peninsula, putting an end to an era and generating a series of changes giving rise to new lifeforms. For millions and millions of years nature sculpted the underground landscape of Xplor. Drop by drop impressive stalactites and stalagmites began taking shape, creative stunning underground decorations and exposing precious fossils.
Xplor Cancun Park opened to the public in July 2009. It is next door to neighboring Xcaret Park, located only 5 minutes from the heart of Playa del Carmen and 45 minutes from Cancun. It takes up 59 hectares, eight of which are adapted underground activities.
Explorers can enjoy five incredible activities: zip-lines, amphibious vehicles, rafts, swimming in underground rivers, and hiking through caverns and grottos. With nature and adventure at their core, these activities take place in natural settings outdoors and within underground environments. In addition, to adventurers’ delights, unlimited smoothies and juices can be found in different parts of the Park and a delicious and healthy buffet can be enjoyed at “El Troglodita” Restaurant.
