Looking for the best Cancun adventure parks in which to get your adrenaline pumping? There are some incredible options for adventurers, and here you’ll find the very best ones! 

The Riviera Maya is known for its incredible natural wonders and lush vegetation, which is the perfect setting for adventurous jungle activities, from ziplining above the trees to rafting on whitewater rapids or trying the world’s only jungle rollercoaster. 

And what about riding ATVs in Cancun? These adventure parks offer all kinds of adventures!

In this post you’ll find the 5 best Cancun Adventure Parks and what they have to offer, as well as the greatest tours that include transportation from your hotel and lunch, so all you have to worry about is having too much fun. Start reading and let the adventure begin!

I personally use GetYourGuide and Viator when booking tours, as both platforms offer a great cancellation policy, allowing you to cancel your activity up to 24 hours in advance and get a full refund. This is especially appreciated in current times when plans could change unexpectedly. 


Located about an hour from Cancun, the adventure park Xplor is one of the best options for adrenaline-junkies, as it offers all sorts of activities, from rafting through caves filled with stalactites to driving an amphibious vehicle through flooded caverns and thick jungle roads, swimming in subterranean rivers and ziplining in the highest zipline in the peninsula, that’s 49 meters high. 

As if that weren’t enough, Xplor also features hammock rides that end with a splash on a natural pool and hikes around the park. 

▶ With the Priority Access: Xplor Adventure Park you’ll get a full-day admission to enjoy all of its activities at your own pace, which includes splashing in a beautiful cenote from one of the ziplines, where you’ll be able to cool off and relax from the adrenaline rush you’re likely to get. 

In this Xplor excursion from Cancun you’ll be served an all-you-can-eat buffet with beverages, and you’ll also get to use the changing facilities and lockers to protect your valuables. Transportation from your hotel in Cancun to Xplor Park is included as well. ➥ BOOK IT HERE

▶ If you decide to head to Xplor from Cancun by your own means of transport, you can buy your All-Inclusive Ticket Entry in advance that, besides granting you access to all the activities, it includes a buffet lunch and unlimited drinks. Parking is free with your ticket as well. ➥ BUY YOUR TICKET HERE

Xplor Fuego near Cancun is one of the most unique adventures in the Yucatan Peninsula. Set in Xplor Adventure Park, it offers access to its most thrilling attractions with a very special plus: you’ll be enjoying them at night. 

You’ll get your adrenaline pumping as you glide through the trees in the zipline circuits while watching at the stars, drive an amphibious vehicle through different terrains only guided by the lights of the vehicle, ride on a raft through dark, stalactite-filled caves and swim in the subterranean rivers. You’ll be surrounded by the sounds of the wildlife as you venture into the jungle and experience the adventure park like never before. 

▶ The Priority Access: Nighttime Xplor Fuego tour takes you to the Xplor Park from Cancun and offers you priority entrance upon arrival, as well as the use of dressing rooms and lockers, and an all-you-can-eat buffet to refuel between adventures.

Selvatica is one of the most popular adventure parks in Cancun. It offers activities to keep you entertained and filled with adrenaline all day long, and it also features kid-friendly adventures. 

It’s less-than-an-hour drive to Selvatica Park from Cancun, and here you’ll get to enjoy its 10 ziplines, from the Aquazip (expect to get soaked!) to a thrilling zipline coaster, its bungee swings and the Madness track, where you’ll be driving a 4×4 through incredibly extreme trails. 

▶ With the Selvatica Park Ziplines, Cenote, and ATV Tour from Cancun you’ll get to join an adventure trip that combines the most exhilarating activities, from the zipline circuits to the ropes course and bungee swing, a parachute jump, access to Tarzania, the zipline coaster, and the world’s only Jungle Rollercoaster. You’ll also get to drive an ATV or RZR buggy through an off-road circuit. 

After you’re done with all those activities you’ll be much in need of a relaxing swim in a cool cenote, which is also included, and once you’re refreshed you’ll enjoy a typical Mexican lunch of Chicken Fajitas. Snacks are also included with the tour, and so is a door to door shuttle. ➥ BOOK IT HERE

▶ As an alternative you can choose the Selvatica Adventure Park: Ziplines and Cenote Tour which offers a different package with other activities you can enjoy at Selvatica from Cancun, Mexico. On this tour you’ll spend the day soaring through the treetops as you experience the ten ziplines of varying heights, including the zipline coaster, and then head into the jungle to swim at the park’s cenote. 

You’ll also get to enjoy lunch and benefit from the door to door shuttle on this half-day adventure. ➥ BOOK IT HERE

Xavage is one of the most exciting amusement parks in Cancun, Mexico. The park is the only one that features canals where kayaking is enjoyed, and it’s also home to the longest horizontal zipline in the area, as well as whitewater rapids for rafting, high-speed jet boat excursions and a rope circuit for the most daring adventurers. 

▶ The Priority Access: Xavage Day Trip offers you the chance to experience all of the park’s activities, from taking unpredictable turns aboard the Jet Boat to driving an ATV through rugged paths, climbing up to 36 meters in the ropes course and overcoming its 24 obstacles or going rafting in the rapids. If that kind of adrenaline gets you nervous, though, you can enjoy soaring among the trees or kayaking in the canals. If you’re into driving, don’t miss the Monster Truck adventure that takes you on an off-road vehicle through an obstacle circuit. 

While the All-Inclusive option provides access to all the attractions, you can also choose the Basic Admission to enjoy the Ropes Course, kayaking and have access to the Children’s Area. 

With this Cancun adventure park tour you’ll also get an extensive buffet with unlimited food and beverages, as well as use of the restroom and dressing rooms and direct transfer from and to your hotel. ➥ BOOK IT HERE

You can choose between the Basic Admission and the All-Inclusive one, which includes a buffet lunch and beverages, and you can even add hotel pick up and drop-off for an extra fee to avoid the hassle of public transportation. ➥ BUY YOUR TICKET HERE
