For those people with an adventurous spirit, Xplor is the most suitable option. Located on the Riviera Maya, near Cancun, this natural park is one of the experiences you just cannot miss, as it has everything you need to satisfy your curiosity and hunger for adventure. The park’s history begins something like this: after the impact of an asteroid which 65 million years ago crashed into the Yucatan Peninsula and killed off the dinosaurs, the basin formed by the enormous crater began to fill with water, creating large caverns. This is the scenery offered by the subterranean landscape of Xplor.
What are the attractions it offers?
In Xplor you will be able to glide over the treetops by means of its 14 zip lines with a height ranging from 26 feet to 13 feet. From these heights you will be able to admire the park’s natural beauty and end your tour landing in the clear waters of the cenotes. Drive an amphibious vehicle over circuits between 1.5 and up to 3 miles long along jungle trails, caves and grottos; defy the level of the water and be amazed by the ancient rock formations. Dare to swim in an underground river surrounded by stalactites and stalagmites; board a raft and row with your own hands while you watch stunning rock formations millions of years old.
Besides living exciting adventures, in Xplor you will be able to enjoy refreshing and energizing drinks and food to recharge your batteries during this experience where everything is included in the admission fee, including the most modern and safe equipment and the best trained staff to ensure your safety. The park offers the entrance fee and tour with transportation from your hotel. Take into account that the park has limited capacity during the day to avoid crowds and to ensure that its visitors are able to participate in four activities in one day; therefore you will have to purchase your tickets in advance, and arrive early.
What you cannot miss
Admire the jungle from up above on board the largest zip lines in Latin America and enjoy the amazing scenery of the Mexican Caribbean. Your adrenaline with overflow when you go zip lining at 18 miles an hour and end in a refreshing cenote.
Pilot these powerful amphibious vehicles and go over rough terrain without fear of any damage to your colossus as it is perfectly protected and will allow you to move forward, even in water. Quite an adventure! If you want to experience a different adventure, you will be happy to learn that there is also a tour called “Xpor at night” which takes place very Wednesday.
