We went to Xplor Adventure Park in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico.

This all-in-one adventure park was amazing. We were staying in Cancun, but the drive down was worth it. 

This park had ziplines, amphibious vehicles, underground rivers, and included a buffet. 

This was definitely a highlight of our Mexico trip.

As you walk into the park you see this awesome Xplor carved into this stone.

As we checked in I requested a helmet with a GoPro Mount already on it. It took them awhile to find one, but it was totally worth it.

The Explor Park had 6 activities you could do. You can do them in any order, but we chose to do them in this order. 

  • Activity 1: Ziplines
  • Activity 2: Hammock Splash
  • Activity 3: Amphibious Vehicles
  • Activity 4: Stalactite River Swim
  • Activity 5: Underground Expedition
  • Activity 6: River Rafts

Xplor includes a locker to put your stuff in during the day.

Our first activity was to do the zip lines. We did the Jaguar Zip Lines first and then came back and did the deer zip lines.

Here are some pictures of the different ziplines:

As we walked across the suspension bridge, you look up and see this big spiral tower that you have to walk up to reach one of the highest ziplines in the park.

They even had ziplines that land in the water!

After we finished the ziplines and the hammock ziplines, we headed to our third activity, which were the amphibious vehicles.

We drove over bridges, through water, and through underground tunnels.

Next we did the underground river swim. At the end of the river is a waterfall that you get to go through.

Then we did the underground expedition. This expedition starts underground, but takes you outside on an obstacle course and on water slides too.

The last activity was going on the underground river rafts. They outfitted us with special hand paddles. This was a good shoulder and arm workout.

After doing all 6 activities we were really hungry. As part of our admission it includes a buffet. We went and had a delicious meal.
