This nature park is a large collection of ruins, gardens and animal exhibits. However, do not expect a peaceful walk through the woods, for while there are trees, the area is developed to cater for tourist.
Xcaret Park is found in the Riviera Maya, in Quintana Roo; it is 5.2 miles to the south west of Playa del Carmen.
While most people reach this park while on a tour, it is not too complicated getting here by yourself. Heading south out of Playa del Carmen on the main highway, you will exit as if you were going to the Occidental Hotel, however, when on the side road you will not turn into the hotel, but instead keep going down the road, and keeping right when possible, trying to maintain going southwest. This will bring you to the park.
Location: the Riviera Maya, Mexico
