You have five parks to choose from for this promotion, and don’t forget that Xenses, the Xcaret Group’s sixth park, opens in June.


Spend the day at Mexico’s most famous nature park and discover the country’s rich traditions too. Relax on the beach, go snorkeling and visit the aquarium, the sea turtles, dolphins and manatees. Tour the huge new aviary, sit for a few minutes in the peaceful sanctuary of the butterfly pavilion and walk to the regional wildlife enclosures, the orchid farm and botanical garden. Swim in an underground river. Marvel at ancient Mayan temples; visit a Mayan village and a henequen hacienda that is home to an impressive folk art museum.
See flocks of scarlet macaws circling the park and the Papantla Flyers emulating their flight in an ancient ritual to honor the sun god. Watch the charros or Mexican riders display their equestrian skills; munch mouthwatering traditional cuisine and stay on for the unforgettable evening gala performance that showcases Mexican history, music, dance and song.


This chain of turquoise inlets, lagoons and cenotes is a snorkeling paradise and offers much more besides. Take the plunge and come face to face to a variety of colorful reef fish. Leap off the cliff of courage into the water and drift across the lagoon on a giant inner tube. Try zip lining, swim in a cenote and walk across the floating bridge at the mouth of the inlet where larger fish swim placidly by.
See dolphins, manatees and stingrays, learn about the mangrove forest, walk along nature trails through the jungle and discover the ancient Mayan traditions associated with bee keeping.


There’s an adventurous spirit inside everyone, find yours at Xplor Park. Spend the day flying through the air on two different zip line circuits. Swim and steer a raft in an underground river flowing through spectacular caves. Board an amphibious vehicle for a thrilling drive through the jungle. All the activities at Xplor are great fun.

Xenotes Oasis Maya

Explore the jungle and four different cenotes in one day. Swim, snorkel and rappel down a cliff wall. Go kayaking, float in an inner tube and splashdown in a cenote on a fun zip line. Venture into ancient caves and enjoy a guided walk along nature trails in the jungle.
The cenotes you’ll visit during the Xenotes Oasis Maya tour are located on the Ruta de Cenotes inland from Puerto Morelos.


Are you ready for a magical Mexican evening of cuisine, music and all the fun of a traditional fiesta? Board a trajinera or colorful Mexican gondola for a cruise along tree-lined canals by the light of flickering candles and the stars.
Enjoy a delicious Mexican dinner as you listen to the sounds of the jungle and ancient Aztec legends. Watch as the mariachis and jarocho musicians strike up; dance to the rousing rhythms of northern Mexico, toast with a shot of tequila and play traditional party games.
Located en route to Puerto Morelos, Xoximilco is inspired by the floating gardens and canals of Xochimilco to the south of Mexico City.

Book trips to all these parks through at the Thomas More Travel desk during your Royal Resorts vacation and take advantage of this special seasonal promotion. Offer not available when booking online at www.thomasmoretravel.com
