Fun activities in Riviera Maya Parks
Slide & Splash
It’s no secret that most of Riviera Maya Parks are part of Experiencias Xcaret Family. But did you know that there is something special that connects all of these Water Parks? Each of them has a water slide! Some of them are part of the main activities, but in other Parks, they are one of the best-kept secrets. Discover where to find each of these water slides and get ready to have fun!
One of the main and craziest activities in Xenses Park. In this 295 ft water slide, you’ll go at full speed to end up in a refreshing cavern of 4 ft deep. This attraction is recommended for the whole family, especially for the adventure seekers.
Important! It’s necessary that children under 4.2 ft tall are accompanied by their parents.
Definitely one of the most refreshing ways to go into a water slide is after flying in a zip-line. Choose the Venadodeerix route to go through here. Keep in mind that the water slide is only available at Xplor Day and that the minimum height required is 3.6 ft, a minimum weight of 88 lbs and a maximum weight of 300 lbs. In the case of children, the harness must fit properly. If it doesn’t, for their own safety, they won’t be able to do the activity.
