Mexico Doesn't Always Mean Party
Going wild in Mexico doesn't necessarily mean a beach vacation dancing on tabletops. In fact, Cancun is a short distance from lush parks hosting wildlife of another sort. Neon pink flamingos, howler monkeys, brilliant toucans and mysterious sea turtles are just a few of the locals you can meet. The Northern Hemisphere's largest barrier reef, natural springs, mangrove swamps, salt marshes, thick jungle, woods, cenotes and waters off the coast host great blue herons, anteaters, giant iguanas, ocelots , manatees and countless other animals.
Just a short ride from the resorts of Cancun and the Riviera Maya are the eco-parks of Xcaret, Xel-Ha and Tres Rios. Xcaret and Xel-Ha have swim with dolphin programs.
