Floating Down the River Of Xcaret, Riviera Maya. Xcaret is a Maya civilization archaeological site located on the Caribbean coastline of the Yucatán Peninsula, in the modern-day state of Quintana Roo in Mexico.
Xcaret is an archaeological park in Cancun that's that combines learning about ancient history with a fun day at the beach-- and there's a little bit of eco-tourism and theme park thrown in as well. One of the must-see attractions at Xcaret is, without a doubt, the underground rivers. They take you past Mayan ruins and into mysterious caves-- and all you have to do is put on your life jacket, sit back and relax because the refreshing stream's current will just carry you along.
