Marvel at the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Preserve
Come into the jungle environment dotted with cenotes, or underground rivers, a lagoon, beaches, reefs, and the jungle. Explore the remains of an ancient Maya port and savor the mosaic of the most traditional Mexican traditions that are created and recreated within the Xcaret ecological and cultural park, which has first class facilities and technology.
DIVE IN CRYSTAL WATERS
Swim in the lagoon and explore its passages and caves between the islets that serve as home to a large number of bird species. Float across the underground river and enjoy the limestone rock formations above your head and the fresh water as it caresses your skin.
GET INVOLVED WITH CONSERVATION
Learn about the programs for the preservation and reproduction of species in southeastern Mexico, and coexist with marine turtles, manatees, spider monkeys, and deer.

LEARN ABOUT MEXICAN HERITAGE
Be a part of the ritual ceremony of the Papantla flyers who invoke the fluttering of birds and enjoy an unforgettable afternoon as you learn about life in an old henequen hacienda and that of Mexican charro horseback riders and the adelitas, or female soldiers, that demonstrate their skill while mounted on fine horses.
TO CLOSE A WONDERFUL DAY
At night, join a performance of music, dance, light, and color that takes you through the history and the joy of Mexico. You will enjoy ancestral representations, parties, and mariachis as you discover Mexico’s history.
