Xplor Playa del Carmen

July 27, 2016

If you’re more of a nature person, Playa Del Carmen is one of the best places to scratch that itch. From horseback riding, to zip-lining, to hiking, to diving, your stay at The Reef Playacar provides you access to so many ways to spend a day out in the open, salty air. However, XPlor Park, located fifteen minutes away from your hotel, is probably one of Playa Del Carmen’s biggest and most rewarding attractions. This day trip is more than worth it, as there’s much to do well into the night at this unique and beautiful adventure park.

As far as amusement parks go, XPlor Park is much more hands-on than any other you’ve been to. With four main adventurous attractions, this park will provide you with exhilarating ways to experience the preserved nature around you. Zip-line through XPlor Park’s natural beauty, from heights of 148 feet. Land in the clear, cool waters of the park’s cenotes and scale your way up suspension bridges before moving on to the other attractions.

If you’re afraid of heights, stay low to the ground on an amphibious ATV vehicle in Playa Del Carmen’s teeming jungles. See exotic plants and wildlife up close as you navigate your ATV through trees, dirt, and ponds. Maybe take a break from the heat and raft through XPlor Park’s underground caves and grottos, or swim under stalactites and stalagmites. For an even more magical experience, wait until night falls to experience XPlor Fuego—where tiki torches line the pathways and your driving skills might be more challenged.

Throughout the day, refresh with complimentary beverages to keep you going. And when you’re all adventured-out, hit up the complimentary buffet in the park for a spectacular lunch or dinner, and allow the shuttle to transfer you back to The Reef Playacar.
