The Eco-Wonders of Xcaret

August 01, 2014

There is almost no end to the wonders of Xcaret, the eco-archeological park that opened in 1990 and has since become one of the Riviera Maya's most sought-after attractions. Here, Mexico's history, traditions and breathtaking natural beauty are captured in a 12-acre Caribbean seaside park featuring a coral reef aquarium, aviary, orchid greenhouse, butterfly pavilion, manatee lagoon, Mayan Village and much, much more. Join guests of the Reef Coco Beach on Mayaland Tours' full-day tour to Xcaret, where highlights include "Xcaret Mexico Espectacular," a beautifully designed show featuring more than 300 costumed actors showcasing the country's unique culture. From Mayan history to modern day, this is an exuberant tribute to Mexico. One word of caution: There's so much to see and do here, one day may not be enough!
