Xcaret Parks and Tours, known for combining archaeology, culture and ecology with entertainment, will welcome its 50 millionth visitor in 2019.

Group Xcaret CEO announced the milestone for the theme parks and tours company in the Mexican Caribbean.

The brand’s nine parks and tours combine adventure, culture and nature-driven experiences, with more than 100 diverse attractions.

“We are proud to be considered the first and most important ecologically and socially sustainable tourism company in Mexico,” said CEO Miguel Quintana Pali.

“Our commitment to our country and our community throughout our 25 years of operation has proven that a different kind of experience is possible in the Cancun area, one that connects travellers to the spectacular and unique nature of our surroundings, and that will ultimately result in a better understanding of our heritage and culture,” he added.

In October, Xcaret announced plans for He’Elel Riviera Maya – a new eco theme park for Riviera Maya, with outdoor adventure sport offerings including hiking, biking and kayaking.

The company also previously revealed its plans for the Suut Há water park, located near the existing Xplor Park. It will include a 40-metre high slide, swimming pools, canals and natural areas, spread over two hectares.

The group’s original park, Xcaret features over 40 attractions set in the jungle, coves and underground rivers of Mexico – including an aquarium, four archaeological sites, and a 20th century Mexican Hacienda.

Xel-ha, an eco-adventure water park, features water slides, snorkelling, rope swings and the remains of an ancient Mayan port city.

Also in Xcaret’s attractions are Xplor and Xplor Fuego, which have ziplines, amphibian vehicles, rafts, stalactite river swimming, hammock splashing and spelunking. At sunset, Xplor becomes Xplor Fuego, with torches and bonfires illuminating the park.

The Xenotes Tour takes visitors on a journey to four different types of cenotes (swimmable sinkholes). Ziplining, cliff jumping, kayak rides are among activities exploring the diverse aquatic life of the Riviera Maya.

Offering innovative experiences, Xenses takes visitors through sensorial journeys in water, air and land, from optical illusions to mud rivers.
