A thrilling mix of high-flying fun & magical sightseeing, when it comes to adventure in Riviera Maya, few places compare to the wonder of Xplor Park – home to 14 of the region’s highest ziplines, miles of tropical trails, & underground rivers.

If you’re looking for an adventurous, distinctly Yucatan experience, this 145-acre eco park near Playa del Carmen is the perfect place to spend the day or night. From the minute you set foot in Xplor, you know you’ve entered a sacred place, slowly shaped by millions  of years of geology, as well as the painstaking efforts of developers and conservationists.

The tropical park is a soaring and sunken network of bridges, treetop platforms, underground rivers, and deep dark caves full of jaw-dropping rock formations. Altogether, daytime guests are welcome to enjoy 14 of the region’s highest ziplines, more than six miles of trails for amphibious vehicles, and over a kilometer of crystal cave waters for rafting – not to mention unlimited smoothies / juices and a BBQ lunch buffet.
