An ecological theme park, Xcaret has a plentiful roster of activities and attractions focused on the surrounding natural environment and Mexico's cultural history. A coral reef aquarium and jungle paths dotted with animals are among the natural attractions, as are snorkeling and swimming in a vast underground river. There are on-site eateries and a central plaza with a Colonial Period facade, where guests can shop for Mexican handicrafts, browse the library, tour the wine cellar, or view classic Mexican films. In the evening, a live show caps off the day, with 300 performers involved in a musical rendition of Mexico's history.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
