If you are someone who is looking for extreme activities surrounded by nature, maybe this park is for you. The Xcaret Group has just opened the doors of its most recent adventure park - Xavage, a complex, where you can climb a circuit of ropes suspended in the air, sail on a jet or drive a jeep off-road on complicated roads.

Located just 20 minutes from downtown Cancun (Quintana Roo, Mexico) and 10 minutes from the airport, this new park occupies an area of ​​57 hectares where eight experiences full of adrenaline were built, featuring different levels of intensity. All visitors to Xavage have access to two of them: a kayak ride and a ropes course on the heights.

All entrances include two basic attractions: The ropes course and "Crocodile" (a kayak tour through a quiet canal surrounded by lush vegetation), as well as the playground for children. The rest of the activities are optional.

Among the most 'wild' activities offered by Xavage is "Barracuda", a section of rapids, which has become the great novelty. Since there were no rivers in Cancun, they built an artificial 4-kilometer-long bed that descends from the hill and empties into a natural lagoon. The result: a rafting tour controlled by hydraulic pumps that produce level III rapids, something unique in the Riviera Maya.

Another attraction is "Puma", an off-road vehicle tour. You must overcome various obstacles, such as mounds of earth with great elevation. 

Xavage also offers a full speed jet ride and a zip line in which you must slide upside down. This attraction is "Dragonfly", a high-speed jet boat tour that reaches speeds of up to 85 kilometers per hour through narrow channels and where the pilot makes bold 360-degree turns, as you can see in this video:

As in any extreme park, you could not miss the zip line. It is called "Hawk" and allows crossing the heights at a speed of 29 kph during 400 meters. For its part, "Howler Monkey" is a horizontal string circuit of 240 meters and suspended at 65 meters height. There, visitors must use their strength, balance, and dexterity to overcome gravity.

The minimum age to enter the Xavage park is five years; Children under 11 pay half the ticket. Almost all attractions require a certain weight and height. If you go with children, you can leave them in the hands of specialized personnel to have fun in a special area that includes slides and swimming pools.

The"soft" package for example (basic attractions + other activity) costs USD 56 for adults and USD 28 for minors. Tickets can be up to USD 135 for adults, with all the attractions plus food. And for those who stay at Hotel Xcaret under the All-Fun Inclusive plan, the entrance fee is included.

Xavage by Xcaret is located next to Xoximilco Park, 10 minutes by car from Cancun Airport and 25 minutes from the hotel zone, in Quintana Roo. Xavage is open from Monday to Sunday.
