In Cancún, fun and adventure can be had at nature reserves, beach resorts, zoos, and some of the best theme parks in Mexico.
Considered the largest in Mexico, the Dr. Alfredo Barrera Marín Botanic Gardens in this corner of the Caribbean, invites tourists to get lost in vegetation representative of the region’s hot and humid climate. In this 148-acre green space, visitors can appreciate how much knowledge the Mayans who inhabited this region had of their natural environment. And tourists will come away with a greater understanding of Cancun’s exuberant vegetation.
Surrounding the city are theme parks that use nature as a way to provide entertainment such as Xcaret and Xel Ha. And there are water parks like Nizuc, Wet n’ Wild, and Xplor EcoPark. They are all designed for the particular tastes and needs of visitors, who may also choose to visit the ecological reserves to have direct contact with sea animals; observe birds, mammals, amphibians, and reptiles; and learn more about the Mayan culture.
Adventure, history, and nature can be explored and experienced firsthand in Cancun theme parks, adding interest to this popular tourist destination.
