Xplor, Mexico

Probably our favourite outing during our week in Mexico, Xplor is a jungle-based adventure park with amazing zip wire courses, amphibious vehicles, rafting & underground rivers.

Coba Ruins & Xel-ha, Mexico

Another tour booked through Experiencias Xcaret and the perfect blend of culture and activity! The first part of this tour starts out at Coba, an ancient Maya city.
