Family Activities:

Xenses Park


Xenses Park

Carretera Chetumal-Puerto Juarez Km. 282, Int B Colonia Rancho Xcaret, Playa del Carmen

This optical illusion park (a spinoff of Xcaret) will have the whole family scratching their heads. Just getting to the lockers and restrooms upon arrival will have you walking through a spinning vortex and under a ladder with a black cat on top. Have you ever thought of drinking from a water fountain that is actually a toilet?

You will want to leave your phone in a locker, but don’t worry because a special bracelet each guest wears is ready to take all the photos you want. And you will want to take a ton of photos in order to get the full experience of the park.

Families can tour the more than 15 activities at Xenses over land, water and air. All of your senses will experience the fun. Take a walk through The Town that will have you thinking you’re a giant in a tiny town but then also you will feel miniature in a giant town. You may even feel as if you are drunk despite any alcohol consumption while walking through this town. Swing to relaxation in the hammock garden and take selfie after selfie with the Xenses bracelets.

Zip down a waterslide, float in a salt lazy river, relax in a mud river, fly like a bird on a zip-line and get all your senses involved when you walk solo through the Xensatorium. Families could easily spend a half-day at this park.


8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday
