Horseback riding on the beach
Carribean Carnival(day & night cruise)
The private horseback riding tour along the beach was the most beautiful and relaxing experience.
On the carribean carnival you get to meet a variety of people and it is alot of fun.
At Mr Papas the waiters put on a show with some audience participation.
Xcaret -- archeological park that you spend all day doing activies and still do not achieve to do all that is provided!!!
While visiting the park we went horseback riding for an hour along side the beach. Then we went swimming in an underground cave that you can snorkel and if you are lucky see some fishes swimming around. The water was freezing. You can swim with the dolphins however that gets very crowded and is by appt only. Needless to say we did not do that. The highlight of the day was during Xcaret de Noche. It begins with a version of the ancient times of *Juego de Pelota* were actor re-enact a game that the Mayans played centuries ago. It was an awesome event. Then the tour begins of different villages and re-enactments. It ends with a show in a stadium of Mariachis and Ballet Folklorico and 'Los Voladores de PatPatlan'.
Even though this tour was an all day event that began at 7am and didn't end till 12am....it was exhausting however it was a good feeling of exhaustment!!! Really recommend this one!!!
Underground Rivers.Natural wonders, unique in the world. It's an experience floating along in the crysal clear spring water, passing through the Maya Village along canals and through tunnels naturally lit by shafts of daylight.
Visit this Park is a great opportunity to watch a ancient show and learn about Mayas as well as be in contact with nature.
You have to reserve 1 complete day to expend in this amazing place.
Rent the equipment or bring your own and get into those amazing underwater caves known as zenotes. You won't believe it!
Similar to Xel-Há (I was in both and I cannot tell you which is better so you should check out both :-))

Xcaret. The place is located a bit south of Cancun and Playa del Carmen.
It was a nice blend of culture, water activities and nature mixed in together.
