The compilation of Xcaret Eco Parks are very unique, to say the least, and we have been to most but this one is like no other. Xenses is an outdoor park with sense-themed activities and this past January we enjoyed an afternoon full of illusions. We recommend taking the entire day though .. you will need it!


Xenses is a great family park! When you arrive you will enter what is known as the Pinwheel and this is where your senses will awaken and where you will choose your path to begin the many magical experiences of Xenses. The Xensatorium is an experience in complete darkness where you use your senses to make your way through different ecosystems. Truly a unique experience!!!

When you exit the Xensatorium you will go through caves and see small cenotes which are part of the underground river system of the Riviera Maya. As you exit from the caves, you will see a really unique waterfall that flows into a small pond with fish, ducks, macaws and flamingos.

Once you exit this area back at the pinwheel you can venture to the parks’ heartbeat. A large RED heart that will bring you into the other side of the park where more activities await.

You will enter a small town and this experience will give your mind a real work out. Where NOTHING is what it seems and the laws of physics simply don’t apply. You will observe a stream that flows in reverse and you will be climbing when you feel you should be descending. This authentic Mexican town is full of surprises for your senses and full of wonder for your mind.

The fun really begins from the water slides that descend into cenote caves to the experience of soaring like a bird in the sky to calmly floating on a salt river where you will be covered with a secret recipe of mud to cleanse your body. 

Xenses is located next to Xcaret and Xplor at km 282 of the Chetumal – Puerto Juárez Federal Highway in the Riviera Maya. It is located 45 miles from Cancun and 3.7 miles from Playa del Carmen.
