Xavage – New Park in Cancun by Experiencias Xcaret
Xavage is the newest park from Experiencias Xcaret, the leading eco-park company in Mexico and the Riviera Maya. Opening in December of 2018, Xavage is a park focusing on more extreme and adventure-packed activities than many other parks.
When compared with other parks in the Yucatan Peninsula like Xel Ha and Xcaret or Aktun Chen, Xavage is a park for the adventure seekers and adrenaline junkies. Activities include zip-lining, kayaking, rafting, and more.
Activities at Xavage
Although they may add more attractions and activities in the future, Xavage is launching with six main draws. First, they have Crocodile, a kayaking tour. Crocodile is about a kilometer long, and you can go in a single kayak or double. Float down the river by yourself with a friend, and navigate the river, small rapids, and turns.
Next, there is Howler Monkey, a quarter-kilometer long ropes course. With nets, logs, hanging bridges, and more, Howler Monkey is an awesome way to get up into the jungle. You will be safely harnessed in and have the opportunity to use your strength and coordination to navigate obstacles and challenges up in the air.
Hawk is no ordinary zipline. Twenty meters off the ground and almost a half-kilometer long, Hawk allows you to soar through the sky and give you the experience of flying. Instead of sitting down in your harness, you will be horizontal, flying like a bird through the treetops.
The Dragonfly activity is not for the faint of heart. Speed through the waters on this super jet that travels up to 85 km/h. Take tight turns, race through canals, and get the adrenaline pumping. Dragonfly holds twelve people, and you will spend about a half hour on the boat as you travel the two and a half mile course.
The river rafting activity, Dragonfly, is truly unique. There are no other places in the Riviera Maya to go whitewater rafting, and Xavage offers an awesome river. Traverse rapids in the river with the safety of a guide, traveling downstream almost a kilometer.
Finally, there is Puma, the rock crawling adventure. Get behind the wheel of a buggy and drive through the rocks on the obstacle course that is over a mile long. Drive over rocks, mounds, holes, and much more as you use tact and skill to get through the course!
Opening, Location, and Hours
Xavage opens in December of 2018, and is the newest of the parks run by Experiencias Xcaret. Experiencias Xcaret is the leader in eco-parks, perhaps most notably running the popular attraction of Xcaret. Their reputation is strong, as they now have nine individual parks up and down the coast.
Xavage is located just south of Cancun, at the same site as Xoximilco. Just a few minutes from the airport, Xavage is an easy place to get to and will certainly be a popular thing to do in Cancun. You can take a taxi directly to the park, just like you can do with Xoximilco.
They have not published the hours quite yet, but we anticipate the park being open from around 9:00am until sunset. If there are evening activities added down the road, they may stay open later.
You can buy tickets to Xavage today, and they are offering quite a few discounts for families and multiple admissions. Get your tickets directly from the Experiencias Xcaret website.
