The Xplor Adventure Park is a popular attraction for adventurous explorers of all ages. If you fancy a break from the beautiful beaches for the day, then this eco-activity centre offers a welcome distraction. Embrace the opportunity for a touch of adventure and adrenaline on your Riviera Maya vacation.
The naturally formed ecological park is located in the heart of Playa del Carmen. There are four main areas to enjoy here, which consist of the zip-lines, cenote caves, underground rafts and jungle route driving trails.
One of the best things about Xplor is that you can explore it at your own pace. If you want to do one activity in particular then head straight for it. If you manage to complete all the activities throughout the site in a day, then you should feel very proud of yourself.
A day out at the Xplor adventure park is definitely not a relaxing
experience, it could almost be described as an assault course. You
do get a great sense of achievement though when you eventually make
your way back. Completing all 13 of the zip-lines alone is a challenge
After all that hard work you should feel more than entitled
to tuck in to the all-inclusive buffet. The choice of food and drink on offer is good and comes complete as part of the admission ticket.
There is also a bar and an area with hammocks to relax and unwind afterwards. If you plan to take your own photographs you will have to bring a waterproof camera.
You also have the option to purchase photographs from the centre itself. As you make your way around the park, you will notice photographers snapping away at key points, and at the end of your trip you can purchase these photos as a memento of your own adventure experience.
A word of warning though, they can be expensive, especially if you are buying individual snaps for multiple members of a group.
You will definitely get wet at the park so a spare change of clothes is advisable. There is a lot of walking involved so if you have your own wet shoes, it is also a good idea to bring them.
There are 14 different zip-lines at the park. The zip-lines are grouped into two circuits 'The Jaguar Circuit' and 'Deer Circuit'. Riding the zip-lines is a really fun and enjoyable experience. Some people are often a little nervous when setting out on their first one, but they soon get into a rhythm and cannot wait to try the next.
The Cenote Caves
In this section of the park, you can swim or float through the beautiful underground caves. As you make your way around be sure to look around and take in your surroundings amongst the spectacular stalactites and stalagmites. You will need to wear life jackets for this activity, towards the end of the route you will get the chance to swim through a dramatic waterfall.
The Underground Rafts
In the underground rafts section of the adventure park you can board a single or double seated raft and paddle your way through a challenging route of mysterious cenote caves. This experience offers visitors the chance to enjoy the naturally formed features of the impressive ecological centre.
The Jungle Trails
In the jungle trails section, you can enjoy the the option to drive and negotiate your way through the various jungle routes on four by four amphibious vehicles. Negotiating the dirt paths, water crossings and jungle landscape obstacles is a fun and enjoyable activity.

If you plan to spend the best part of your vacation in relaxation mode, then this popular eco adventure park definitely provides a day out with a difference.
The park opens daily from around 9am to 5pm.
You can arrange transportation from your hotel as part of the package, or if you prefer to just book the admission tickets, then you can always jump in a taxi or rental car form your resort and make your own way there instead. Good luck on the ziplines, have fun in the jeeps and remember to take advantage of the all-inclusive food afterwards.
