If you are heading to the Riviera Maya on your next vacation, be sure to go to Xplor Fuego adventure park, especially if you are looking for fun and a jolt of adrenaline. Discover this nighttime spectacle—it is pure thrills!

Discover Xplor Fuego, an Attraction in Xcaret

One of the Riviera Maya’s most exciting attractions is this amusement park. At night, hundreds of torches illuminate this spot hidden in the middle of the jungle. Of course there is fire, not only as a light source, but also as part of some of the attractions, such as the flaming rings crossed by a zip line circuit.

Adventurers, step forward! Everything here is exciting: slides, hanging bridges, amphibious vehicles, narrow caves, lava rivers, and unimaginable obstacles await.
