Different places for an Easter family vacation in Cancun

February 24, 2023

The best combo: adventure activities + stimulate your senses 

With Xavage and Xenses! The newest Xcaret parks for the whole family 

If you are looking for where to go on your Easter vacation, let me give you the best recommendation: Cancun and Riviera Maya in Mexico. Why? Surely you have heard about these two paradises in the Mexican Caribbean, a destination that has so many things to offer:

  • Crystalline water beaches
  • Delicious typical food
  • Water activities
  • Theme parks
  • A new wonder of the world
  • All-inclusive hotels 

I could continue naming you a thousand wonders of this destination and how it's perfect for everyone, but it's something that you have to come and see for yourself. As an additional bonus, the people are warm and friendly towards tourists.  

Are you already visualizing yourself here? For a more realistic view, let me tell you more about the best attractions of Cancun and Riviera Maya.  

Grupo Xcaret is a leading Mexican sustainable tourism company famous for its theme parks, tours, and all-inclusive hotels: everything you need to create unique, comfortable, and unforgettable experiences. 

As I mentioned, among the best of its attractions are the family-friendly theme parks; let me tell you more about two of the newest, most fun, and most adventurous ones.  

Xavage, for the most adventurous people 

Located in Cancún, Xavage park is perfect if you like an adventure with activities for the whole family where fun will be your best companion. Here’s the longest horizontal zip-line in the destination, a Monster Truck obstacle course, a Jet Boat ride with 360° spins, and more.  

My best tip, if you like challenges, is the Ropes Course: a four-level obstacle course where you will test your ability from a few feet high in addition to having fun. 


Is Xavage for children? 

If you bring small children, they can enjoy the Splash Zone with an exclusive kids' area to have a great time on waterslides, fun bridges, and a wading pool.

Tip: if you want to know if your children can do all of the Xavage activities, they can do them as long as they are at least 1.20 meters tall.


What can I eat in Xavage? 

Don't worry about the food; Xavage is an all-inclusive park because we know that after so much activity, you want to recharge your energy with delicious food.

There are two places where you can eat inside Xavage.

  • The first is the Xnack, where you will find delicious breakfast/brunch options.
  • The second is the main restaurant with an extensive buffet for your afternoon meal.

    Get ready for unlimited food and beverages!


For me, Xavage is a park where you can genuinely say:

What would our life be like if we didn't dare to try new things?

Xenses, fun with all your senses 

As a second recommendation, let's go to Xenses! This theme park is in Playa del Carmen, next to Hoteles Xcaret. It is a half-day experience because it will not take you more than 5 hours to enjoy it to the fullest with your whole family.


If you want to explore and relax in addition to feeding your adventurous spirit, then get ready because Xenses will put all your senses to the test.


The day starts with the Town, where you must div out if you're going upward or downward. How good are you with balance? Prepare yourself for a few very funny wobbles.

Another of my favorites is the Xensatorium; if you are afraid of the dark, this is an excellent opportunity to overcome it and step outside your comfort zone in a completely safe environment. In this activity, you will use all your senses except sight.

The food in Xenses 

Although this park is not all-inclusive, you can still find the Xnack, a restaurant with a menu at an additional cost where everything is delicious!

Take the opportunity to get amazing pictures since every corner of this place is the most beautiful and instagrammable thing you can imagine.


As you will see, they are experiences we could call "somewhat opposite," but they complement each other, and that is why you won’t lack either fun or adventure.

What better than combining these two parks to have a vacation where you can enjoy a little bit of everything? Get ready to take home memories and life experiences.

Now you are ready and with the perfect activity guide to have an incredible vacation. Tell the plan to your whole family and start packing your bags because Cancun awaits you!

And you know, Grupo Xcaret is always eagerly waiting for you! Because we are sure that after you come, you will always want to return.

Orgullosamente Cancunense, viajar es mi actividad favorita. Amante de los atardeceres, la pasta, el vino y la luna. Creo que vida es increíble.
