XCARET, meaning "Little Inlet" in Maya, was for more than 1,000 years one of the most important Mayan ceremonial sites and seaports. Mayans came here to purify themselves in the "Cenote" (natural water well, or sink hole) that is part of the marvelous area. Today, it is a spectacular eco-archaeological park where you should spend a day. So popular and spectacular is XCARET that there is a saying "When you visit XCARET, don't forget to visit Cancun."
XCARET, it's more than you think…
NATURAL FEATURES, NATURAL ATTRACTIONS AND WATER ACTIVITIES AT XCARET
Subterranean River Designed by nature and enhanced by man you will enter the 530-meter (over 1/3 of a mile long) subterranean river and float downstream. With natural skylights in the jungle above to light the way, you must swim here while at XCARET. There are locking duffle bags provided for you personal belongs and life jackets for all so that you can leisurely enjoy the cool crystal clear pure waters that bubble up from the limestone in the Yucatan jungle. 6 exits are located along the 530-meter course so that you may exit at any time.
The Beach What better way to spend part of any day that at the beach? XCARET has a beautiful beach on the Caribbean Sea. Pure white sand, crystal clear warm Caribbean water, accented with coconut palms and Palapas and lounge chairs to protect you from the sun and give you a chance to recharge your energies as the Mayans did.
XCARET Inlet This small inlet where the cool pure waters of the underground river mix with warm salty waters of the Caribbean is where the Mayans came for over 1000 years to purify their bodies and souls. Stand in 4 feet of water and feel the cool water on your feet and the warmer seawater on your stomach and chest. Truly a unique experience.
The Lagoon Between the jungle and the beach is the lagoon. A perfect place to see some wild birds and do a little relaxed snorkeling. Around the lagoon hammocks are located to relax in.
Nature's Whirlpools 5 pools constructed so that you can enjoy the force of ocean waves, without having to swim in the open the sea. The water swirls through the natural shaped tubs like a whirlpool.
Ocean lovers can choose to snorkel on their own, free of additional charge, or snorkel in an organized tour (not included in your tour.)
XCARET is home to the caves of XCARET and "Barracuda Reef." Dive with the experts of XCARET. This activity is not included in your tour and carries additional charges.
ANIMALS OF XCARET
Bird Sanctuary Here you will see an area of reproduction and exhibition of birds natural to the region. Over 30 species, many of which are in danger of becoming extinct. One of the ambitious projects of XCARET is the raising and reproduction of Guacamayas. These birds are in danger of extension. Once found in the Mexican States of Oaxaca, Veracruz, Tamaulipas and Chiapas, today they can only be found in the wild in Chiapas. Born blind and without feathers the Guacamayas must eat every hour for 15 days. Monogamous these beautiful birds can live to be 50 years old. Another ambitious project is the breeding and raising of the 5 different kinds of flamingos found on the Yucatan peninsula. Enjoy Flamingo Island where you can see these beautiful birds, which can live to be 30 years old.
Butterfly Pavilion XCARET has one of the largest butterfly pavilions in the world. The objective, aside from allowing tourist to see butterflies in their natural environment, is to breed and reproduce butterflies in danger of becoming extinct. The "larva factory" is where you will see all the stages in a butterfly's life, the eggs, the larvae, the cocoon, and finally the butterfly. With a little luck see butterflies coming out of the cocoon and entering the world. The best time to visit the open-air butterfly pavilion is in the morning, because the butterflies are more active as they prefer to fly when it is cooler.
Marine Turtles XCARET, since 1996 has helped various world governmental bodies study and reproduce marine turtles as they are in danger of extinction. Here you will see young turtles smaller than your hand, to old giants as big around as a car tire. Living to an age of 100 years only 2 in 100 turtles born reach the age to reproduce.
Jaguars and Puma Island The Jaguar was one of the most important symbols to the Maya. All the mammals that you see in XCARET will appear not to be in cages. The Jaguars and Pumas are in their natural environment and on an island surrounded by a deep ravine full of water. Xcaret has been very successful at breeding these beautiful symbols of the Yucatan peninsula.
Crocodile Lagoon For more than 140 million years crocodiles have been the terror of lagoons and rivers in the tropical zones. Even though they are cold blooded and spend a lot of time warming themselves in the sun, they are very agile and speedy hunters when stalking and attacking prey. See these ancient egg laying monsters in their natural environment.
Bat Cave At the end of the lagoon you will find a bat cave home to the two kinds of bats that inhabit the area. There are insect eating bats that are great at controlling the fly and mosquito population in the Yucatan and fruit eating bats that are responsible for spreading the seeds of local fruit trees that grow wild in the Yucatan area.
Botanical Gardens and Green areas 60% of the trees and plants in the botanical garden retain their foliage all year round. Here you will find ornamental trees and plants as well as plants used in medicines, chewing gum, even a native plant used by the Mayas against poisonous bites. As "chicle" or chewing gum was a very important product of the area at the turn of the century you will also find a "Villa Chiclera" or a house where chicle is produced which used to be used in the production of chewing gum. With the objective of finding another industry for the local rural population XCAERT has an on going project of studying edible mushrooms. 22 species of orchids have been successfully grown at XCARET and they are trying to grow all 76 species native to the region.
SPECTACULAR SHOWS OF XCARET
The Mayan Ball Game The Mayan ball game is reenacted at XCARET each day. This game was one of the most important of the rituals for the Maya. The modern tourist is amazed to learn that the captain of the winning team (not the losing team) was beheaded as a reward. This sacrifice by him was so that he could live with the Gods.
XCARET at Night As the sun sets get ready for XCARET at night where you will see one of the most spectacular shows in all of Mexico. See a folkloric show, Indian dancers, singers, and horsemanship at its best. Witness the famous "Papanatla Fliers". An ancient Indian ceremony from the state of Veracruz dedicated to the Sun God to insure that the harvest would be good. 4 fliers atop a tall pole do the ceremony. The 4 fliers represent the 4 important elements: land, air, fire and water; if the 4 important elements are not in equilibrium then natural disasters occur. The same for the fliers. If they are not in equilibrium they will be met with a disastrous fall.
OTHER THINGS TO DO AT XCARET…
See the genius of Mayan technology in the way they lived. Their homes were built so that the breeze blew through the house and with a thatched roof that not only lasted 20 to 25 years but also kept the house cool and dry. Each Mayan home also had their own small garden.
Archaeological Site With more than a thousand years of history the archaeological site at present day XCARET was constructed in the post-classic period about 1400 A.D. There are some 500 platforms and over 60 structures that possible were temples, meeting areas, and navigation points for boats arriving from pilgrimages to Cozumel to praise Ixchel, the god of fertility.
The museum at XCARET is unique in that it houses replicas in miniature of the 12 most important cities of the Mayas. Replicas so exact that when you photograph them the photos look as though they were taken from an airplane.
Aquarium The aquarium at XCARET is really an example of the living coral reef. Here you will see what most people see while snorkeling and diving. Flushed with fresh seawater the aquarium is state of the art.
