10 BEST Cancun Zipline Tours & Experiences [2023]

Looking for the best Cancun zipline tours? There are plenty, as zipline parks abound and offer all kinds of adventures. Let’s check out the best zipline activities you can try! 

Get ready for an adrenaline-pumping, heart-thumping experience as we take you on a thrilling journey through the best ziplines in Cancun. Soar high above the lush jungles and breathtaking landscapes, while feeling the wind in your hair and the excitement in your soul.

There is no doubt that ziplining is one of the most popular things to do in Cancun and in Riviera Maya. Nothing quite beats the exhilaration of flying over the jungle! And while the city is mostly known for its beaches and nightlife, if you want to zipline in Yucatan Peninsula, Cancun is a great spot to do it.

I’ve ziplined in a few places around the world, but the two zipline tours I’ve done in Tulum and Cancun were the most memorable ones. Some of the zipline parks you’ll read about are just insane! The height, the speed, the variety of ziplines… it’s really difficult to find such incredible zip lining in the world.

Whether you’re a first-time flyer or a seasoned zipline aficionado, we’ve got the lowdown on the top spots to unleash your inner adventurer. Strap in, hold tight, and let’s zip through the 10 very best Cancun zipline tours.

I personally trust and use Viator to book activities when I travel, and I especially recommend it because they have an excellent cancelation policy. In fact, you can cancel up to 24 hours before the tour and still get a full refund for most activities.

Xplor: Best Zipline in Cancun, Mexico

The Xplor Adventure Park offers all sorts of activities, from swimming in subterranean rivers to gliding on a raft through the incredible stalactite caves, or driving an amphibious vehicle through jungle roads and flooded caverns. 

The Priority Access: Xplor Adventure Park with Pick Up and Drop Off offers roundtrip transportation from your hotel in Cancun and priority access along with a full-day admission ticket, so you can enjoy the Xplor Cancun zipline and all the other thrilling adventures. 

👉 Why this tour? Xplor is the most visited zipline park in the world, and for good reason. This epic adventure park offers not just one, but 14 exhilarating ziplines in two circuits. Making the best of the natural scenery, they have hammock rides that end with a splash on a natural pool. They also have the highest zipline in Cancun; it’s 49 meters high! 

I had a blast at this park, and would definitely go back on my next visit to Cancun. I also feel that Xplor’s commitment to safety makes it the ultimate choice for ziplining in this area.
