About Xcaret

Xcaret houses the ruins of a Maya city which reached its peak in the 15th and 16th centuries.

Located in Mexico’s Quintana Roo region, Xcaret was then known as Ppole and is said to have been of great ceremonial importance, as evidenced by its wealth of temples, homes and monuments.

The Xcaret ruins are actually part of a much larger eco and amusement park, with a range of activities.
