Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

The Basics

With more than 50 attractions across two unique routes, including a gravity-defying pueblo and immersive mud bath, the park is ideal for a half-day excursion. Tours typically provide round-trip transfer from Cancun and the wider Riviera Maya, plus plenty of time to explore independently. After you’ve splashed your way through the water-based activities, dry off over a bite to eat in the on-site snack bar or take advantage of all-inclusive packages that include complimentary refreshments.

How to Get There

Xenses Park is situated on the outskirts of Playa del Carmen, around 5.5 miles (9 kilometers) from the city center for a 10-minute drive. It's about 47 miles (75 kilometers) from Cancun for an hour drive. Free, on-site parking is available, though round-trip tours with hotel pickup are a great way to avoid the stress of finding your own way.

When to Get There

Most tours offer the choice of a morning or afternoon excursion. Unlike at other Riviera Maya attractions, rain only adds to the experience at Xenses Park, making it a great top choice on wet weather days. The park is closed on Sunday.

Xcaret and Xel-Há

If Xenses appeals, you might want to visit its sister parks, Xcaret and Xel-Há. Xcaret Park is an eco-archaeological haven on the coast, just south of Xenses, where you can snorkel, hike, or raft your way around the Mayan jungle. Xel-Há Park is about 25 miles (41 kilometers) south and offers a range of outdoor aquatic activities, as well as an aquarium and turtle reserve. Some passes include free entry to all three parks.
