Xplor Park – The Adventures of Rubi
Welcome to episode # 5 of my adventures, the adventures of Rubi! This day we expect great emotions in the park Xplor, is one of the famous parks of Experiences Xcaret group. It is located a few kilometers south of Playa del Carmen, it takes about 20 minutes by car to get there. This park is famous for offering 5 exciting activities; two circuits of 14 impressive zip lines, a raft trip in the heart of an underground river, two circuits of travel in amphibious vehicles, a hammock-zipline that flows into the water and a ride swimming in the waters of a mysterious cave full of stalactites . Another very important thing to recover the energy between two activities: the buffet bar with protein drinks is unlimited throughout the day. Join me!
1a. activity: The Tirolesas
If what you are looking for is to immerse yourself in the heart of the jungle in the Riviera Maya, Xplor is the place you have been looking for: two circuits of 7 zip lines each for a total of 3.8 km of aerial acrobatics are waiting for you !. The tallest tower is 45 meters above sea level, sometimes you can feel as if you reach the top of the trees, a really impressive experience!
2nd activity: Rowing on raft
This second activity will take us to an adventure in the heart of a closed cenote in the form of an underground cave for a raft trip. It can be done in a shared raft for two or individual if you want to venture out alone. The staff provides you with two paddles that you will have to put on your hands to paddle for just over 500 meters (about 30 minutes at a leisurely pace).
3rd activity: amphibious vehicles
For our third activity an exciting ride in amphibious vehicles awaits us. The park offers 2 buggy circuits in the heart of the jungle with passages in underground caves, each circuit is more than 5 km long. Of course, a driver’s license is required for the driver and a minimum age of 18 is required.
4th activity: Aquaculture
The hammock-zip line is an original and very fun concept. The activity consists of choosing a hammock and sitting in it either as a couple or alone, then you launch yourself to a vertiginous descent to aquatize in water…
5th activity: Swim in a river of stalactites!
Then we submerged in the rapids of the underground river surrounded by totally natural stalactites. The adventure lasts about 400 meters and the water is at a good temperature, it is incredible to find yourself in a cave in the heart of the earth.
To conclude, Xplor is really a good fun option to the maximum for both adults and families. A lot of adrenaline in the middle of the jungle.
