Various Activities to Take Part in at XPLOR Adventure Park
If you are a lover of adventure, then the activities at XPLOR are going to blow your mind. Situated deep within the jungle of the Riviera Maya lies XPLOR. Using its surreal surroundings, the park has designed a wide array of mesmerizing, relaxing, and fun activities. Xplor adventure park offers a variety of outdoor activities for visitors. Here is a list of some of the main activities offered at the park, along with a brief description of each:
Imagine soaring through the sky and the trees like a bird on one of the many zip-lining circuits available at the park. You can soar through the jungle, reaching speeds of up to 60 miles per hour! If you want to feel the rush and enjoy an unforgettable view, then you will not want to miss out on zip-lining at XPLOR.
Swimming in Underground Rivers
This is the perfect activity to escape the sun & heat and discover what lies beneath the surface. Get the chance to swim in underground rivers surrounded by limestone formations illuminated by colorful lights. These rivers are formed by water that flows underground through limestone caves and is known for their crystal-clear waters and unique geological formations.
Rafting in Underground Rivers
Want to explore the underground rivers but uniquely and spectacularly? Hop in a raft and glide through a cavern filled with stalactites and stalagmites. This is one of the best eco-tourism activities available at XPLOR. First, however, make sure to just sit back and relax and remember not to touch any stalactites, as they have been growing for thousands of years and are formed by very vulnerable minerals.
Amphibious Vehicles and ATV Rides
Take the adventure above ground and on wheels with an amphibious vehicle, and ATV tours through the jungle. Put the pedal to the medal as you cross rivers, navigate rocky terrain, and explore the natural surroundings. Not only is this activity exciting, but it’s the perfect time to take in all the local flora and fauna that make this destination so spectacular.
This activity takes zip-lining to a whole other level! Instead of wearing a harness and gliding through the trees in this activity, you get to lay down on a hammock before splashing into a refreshing body of water. While this activity isn’t as long as others and only lasts a few minutes, it’s perfect to cool off before getting ready for the next adventure! It’s safe and an incredible opportunity to have fun with the entire family. Before heading on to the next activity, warm up in front of a roaring fire.
The saying “make sure to stop and smell the roses” has never been more true at XPLOR. Enjoy a brisk and stimulating walk around the park and enjoy the natural beauty of the Riviera Maya. Encounter stunning wildlife such as monkeys, different species of birds, coatis, and more. There has never been an activity to take in the destination you are visiting than with this guided tour.
Make sure to ask the Seek @ Go team about all the activities currently available at the course, and they will be more than happy to provide you with all the information you need.
