Xcaret Eco-Park is situated in the heart of the Riviera Maya. Xcaret means, in Maya, ''Small Cove'' and it is located on the shore of the Caribbean Sea, in front of the island of Cozumel. Xcaret Park features an impressive natural cove and invites you to discover a paradise that shelters all the wonders of the Mexican Caribbean. It's just few minutes away from Playa del Carmen and less than an hour from Cancun. Without a doubt it is one of the most famous of all the ecological and archaeological parks.
On your next visit to Riviera Maya, a trip to Xcaret is a ''must'' because it offers 30 fully-interactive activities, among which the most incredible ones are the underground rivers, the butterfly-pavilion, the turtle farm, the interactive aquarium, the museum and dolphin center and the best show with folk costumes, music and regional dances from all over Mexico.
While at the park, you will be able to sample fresh seafood cooked with characteristic regional flavors, as well as other interesting Mexican dishes. And you'll also be able to enjoy listening to fantastic Mexican folkloric musical groups.
In the late afternoon, the best is yet to come. You will be transported into the past in a blink of an eye, to the times of the ancient Maya, where you'll find yourself immersed in Mayan ceremonies, pre-Hispanic dances, witness to a ball game and to top it all off you'll get to experience the sounds of instruments enriching colorful regional dances from all over Mexico, at the ''Xcaret at Night'' show.
