Hidden Worlds

Crta. Federal 307 , 10 Km N. of Tulum
Tulum , Quintana Roo , Mexico

Although the secret’s out—both IMAX and the BBC have reported on this stunning park made up of the world’s most extensive system of underwater caves and cenotes—it’s still a refreshing alternative to Xcaret’s more commercial attractions. Shake off sun-induced languor by whooshing through the jungle on one of two 600-foot zip lines or by rappelling into a cenote, where you can float, snorkel, or dive (if you’re scuba certified) in stalactite- and stalagmite-studded waters.

Insider Tip: Pedal your way through the jungle and over rock formations on the SkyCycle, a fun, more relaxing alternative to walking that runs for half a mile before depositing you next to a cenote.
