Xplor’s history began 65 million years ago. When a 10 km-diameter asteroid crossed through the Earth’s atmosphere, stuck the Yucatan Peninsula and put an end to an era, thus generating a series of changes giving rise to new forms of life. For millions and millions of years, nature sculpted the underground landscape of Xplor. Drop after drop impressive stalagmites and stalactites began taking shape, which created an impressive underground decoration along with fossils.
TXplor Cancun Park opened to the public in July 2009. It is next door to Neighbor Xcaret Park, located only 5 minutes from the heart of Playa del Carmen and 45 minutes from Cancun. It takes up 59 hectares, eight of which are adapted underground.
All explorers can enjoy four incredible activities: zip-lines, amphibious vehicles, rafts and swimming in the underground river. All related to adventure and nature; these activities take place in a natural setting and outdoors. In addition, to the delight of the adventurers, they can find unlimited smoothies and juices in different parts of the Park and enjoy a delicious and healthy buffet at the “El Troglodita” restaurant.
And for the most extreme visitors, Xplor offers a new experience that makes it possible to enjoy the sunset and night. Xplor Fuego Tour joins the best of two worlds in a night version that invites you to discover new emotions with additional ingredients such as the fire of torches, fireflies and stars that light up caves, paths and bridges.
What this new adventure promises is witness the sunset, venturing into the darkness of the jungle and plunging into the refreshing waters of an underground river, watching the bonfires that light your inner fire, sharing time and space with the fauna of the night and receiving light from the Moon and the stars that guide you in the shadows. The invitation is unique: ignite your life with Xplor Fuego, a challenge in the dark as you could never have imagined.
Many people come to the Park wishing to live and enjoy incredible experiences filled with adventure and adrenaline. Xplor is located in a place where the mystery of nature gets exposed in an amazing setting, ready to welcome a true explorer.
