Tour Details


Spend a day in paradise at Xcaret, an eco-archaeological park located in the Riviera Maya. Discover an underground maze of rivers where Mayans once prepared for ceremonial rites, frolic in a lagoon, and snorkel in clear Caribbean waters. Keep your eyes peeled for birds, butterflies and monkeys as you wander the lush forested grounds and visit archaeological sites. When the sun goes down, settle in for a spectacular show of lights, music and dance highlighting Mayan history and culture. Convenient pickup and drop-off from most Cancun hotels are included.

Know More about this tour

Travel in air-conditioned comfort from your Cancun hotel to Xcaret, meaning ‘small inlet’ in the Mayan language. Inside the history-filled eco-archaeological park, there's something for everyone in your family or group.

Explorers and budding archaeologists can head beneath the Riviera Maya jungle to underground caverns, where the Mayans once engaged in cleansing rituals before boating to Cozumel island to pray to the goddess of fertility and childbirth. Stumble upon rivers and perhaps spot macaws, monkeys and deer along the way. Once you make your way out of the underground labyrinth, find yourself at Mayan Village.

Learn about family traditions and village infrastructure at exhibits; visit archaeological sites; or marvel at the beauty of the orchid garden. For more wildlife wonders, head over to the aviary, butterfly pavilion and coral reef aquarium. Meanwhile beach lovers can snorkel in crystal blue waters to spot sea turtles, take a dip in the inlet lagoon, and then soak up the sun on a natural beach.

At the end of the day, you can get dropped off at your hotel or stay for Xcaret México Espectacular, a popular night show featuring more than 300 performers in traditional costumes. Through drama, music and dance, learn about Mayan and Mexican history and culture from pre-Columbian times to present day.

After the show concludes, enjoy easy bus transport back to your Cancun hotel.

Xcaret Plus option:

Includes a buffet lunch with orange juice and lemonade, snorkeling gear and the use of the Plus Area, a more private shower and changing room facility.

  • We had a great trip to Xcaret via air conditioned busses. Our guide going was very good about giving us info about the park and letting us know where to meet at the end of the day to board our bus again. It was professionally done.
    1. Not all suntan lotions are allowed in since it is an ecological park. You can buy an ecologically sound sun block at the park. Check website for more info.
    2. Bring your own towels or rent them there.
    3. This all day event ends at approx. 9 pm after the Xcaret Spectacular show buses left at 9:45 pm although it seemed that u also had the opportunity to go back at 4:45 pm. Check with company ahead of time
    4. The underground river takes about 45-60 minutes swimming from point A to point B. There are multiple early exit routes through out.
    5. Do not miss the Mexican buffet at La Cocina
    6. The Xcaret Mexico spectacular is a MUST!!!

  • Our Xcaret Day Trip was absolutely amazing! It was especially nice that we did not have to drive. It was a great idea to have Viator pick us up and drop us off. I strongly encourage it. Can't wait to go back.

  • This was an excellent tour from the hotel pick up and until the drop off around 11 PM. The Viator bus waited for us very patiently until the final show A MUST SEE on history of Mexico ended at 10 PM and brought us back..

  • This was an excellent tour very smoothly arranged by Viator with hotel pickup and drop off perfect on time. The final show was a MUST SEE and the Viator bus waited for all of us very patiently to get back around 10 PM and brought us back to the hotel.

  • We had a great time. Not enough time to do everything, too many choices. Really enjoyed the evening show!

  • Loved this one. Only thing is, its too much to enjoy everything in one day. We left early because we were so tired. We missed the show. We were bummed but loved the excursion. The extra things to do are so worth it. We did sea trek and loved every minute of it. Would definitely do again and so worth the money.

  • If you have a day to spare in Cancun, I highly recommend spending it at Xcaret.

  • Fantastic! Had a great time! Bus comfortable and on time! Tour guide gave great suggestions!

  • We were pick up at the hotel on time and got back to the hotel without any issues... The park is beautiful, there are plenty of activities to do and keep you busy all day long, there are also a lot of activities available that you have to pay extra for but are worth doing...

    There are a lot of good restaurants around the park, lots of things to see and do. The staff is very helpful and eager to help in any way the can, they really want to make sure you have a good time and a very enjoyable experience...

    And you have to stay to the night show spectacular, it is well put together and very entertaining, it is a very enjoyable show... Overall if you go to Cancun, you have to visit Xcaret and Viator make is a painless and wonderful way to experience it...

  • The pick up was crazy and chaotic and a long walk from our hotel. The tour guide did a great job at switching from Spanish to English to make sure everyone understood the park. It turns out a lot of the things cost extra so I was not pleased with that, but we had a good day swimming through the underground rivers, looking at the wildlife and laying out. I will not go to this park again.
