That said, it is expected to have a new set of theme parks over the next few years, including some world famous franchises as well as new sets of attractions in some of the established ones in the area (we're talking about the amazing water slides at Xel Ha Park) adding an extra to all the fun you are already going to have.

Important Information:

All of Cancun theme parks cover a good range of activities suited for all types of visitors. If you are drawn to eco-themed parks, Cancun’s luscious nature and surroundings make it the place to be, since around 90% of the theme parks in the area are ecological and nature parks. However, there is also a good option within a few miles of the comfort of your Cancun all-inclusive resort, Ventura Park is located at the end of the Hotel Zone and has a variety of rides and activities that cover every need for those seeking for adventures on air, in the water, fast rides and geeky outerworld battles. 

 What People Say:

There are many options for all types of travellers, starting with Xcaret Park, which is some sort of the poster child of all theme parks in Cancun. Its sister parks include XelHa Park, Xplor Park, Xenses and Xenotes are easy to navigate and have something for everyone appealing to older and younger crowds equally. However, to those more adventurous who are looking for more off the beaten path attractions, ziplining until you can’t zipline no more is always the way to go at Selvatica, or you can always have an encounter with ancient mayan ruins as well as rappelling down the largest cenote in the Yucatan Peninsula or go deep down underground and explore the amazing subterranean rivers and cenotes that Rio Secreto holds for you.


Most of the theme parks near Cancun are located at some good distance from the city which is why is a good idea to check if roundtrip transportation from your Cancun hotel is included in your park admission. It is also very convenient to be on time for your hotel pick-up so you can enjoy a full day of fun.
