Spend a fun-filled day in Xcaret Park. Relax on the beach or in a shaded hammock, swim in the underground rivers or board a raft and drift along a jungle waterway called the Paradise River. If you are interested in nature, don't miss the aquarium, butterfly pavilion, sea turtle tanks, the placid manatees feeding in the lagoon, the aviary and the regional wildlife compounds.
As you walk along the paths through the forest you'll come across Mayan temples, the legacy of the days when Xcaret or Pole was a port. If you are interested in the Maya, take a few minutes to stroll around the miniature models of the Maya World's most important cities, visit the Ball Court and the Mayan Village, where you can watch craftsmen at work in front of traditional thatched houses.
