There are several theme parks and amusement parks all over the country where the whole family can have fun. If you wish, you can see Mexico’s vibrant culture in its original form. With that sorted out, let’s take a look at some of the best theme parks in Mexico.
Since its opening in 1990, Xcaret Park has offered a variety of activities from water fun to eco-archaeological adventures for all ages. The park is home to several ecosystems including a coral reef aquarium, butterfly garden, rainforest trail and many others showcasing the park’s flora and fauna. Jaguars, manatees, flamingos, deer and tapirs are some of the animals you can see up close. The children’s world at Xcaret Park offers plenty of fun water activities. Chaak, the Mayan water god, inspired the creation of underground rivers, lagoons and beautiful natural seawater pools.
