Enjoy a show at night, with more than 300 actors on stage, resulting in a musical journey through the history of Mexico since pre-Hispanic times to the present day, with all the colorful costumes, folklore and dancing. The recreation of a pre-Hispanic ball game, a charro celebration, a Mexican cemetery, a coral reef aquarium, a butterfly pavilion moreover underground rivers, beaches and natural pools, a place where you can swim with dolphins and have fun with countless attractions and activities that will make you live magical experiences. Xcaret has 2 chapels, in which you can have catholic, or non-denominational wedding ceremonies, one is an outdoors-indoors chapel on the hill overlooking the Caribbean sea and another one, is actually on a cave, with an amazing sculpture and lighting, that welcomes and surprises anyone that comes in, for it feels so magical, the main area where the minister and bride and groom stand is semi-surrounded by a natural cenote (sweet water sink-hole), and that my friends it’s pretty unique.
