Where is Xplor Park?

Xplor Park is just south of Playa Del Carmen on the 307 Highway. From Playa Del Carmen to Xplor Park it will take about 13 minutes driving. From the Hotel Zone in Cancun, it will take about 1 hour and 15 minutes driving. If you are coming from Tulum Xplor is about 42 minutes away.


How do you get to Xplor Park?

There are 4 main ways to get to Xplor Park and it will depend on where you are staying and how fast you want to get there. Here are the three main ways.

    1. Include transportation in your ticket. Xplor Park will pick you up either at your hotel or nearby meeting point. This is a good option if you want a simple all in one option to plan out your day. It is also a good option if you are staying further away, like in the Cancun or Tulum area. You can purchase this Xplor All Inclusive with Transportation here.
    2. Taxi. This option is good if you are staying in Playa Del Carmen or nearby. This is good for 1-4 people or if you are more, a taxi van. It is fast and a direct way to get there. It is cheaper then buying the transport with your ticket from Xplor Park. If you are staying further away this option can get expensive. When you go to leave the park there will be taxis waiting in the parking lot.
    3. Colectivos. These are shared minivans that go from Playa Del Carmen to Tulum and return or between Playa Del Carmen and Cancun and return. These are cheap costing only a dollar or a few depending on where you are coming from. This is a good option if you are staying near the highway or can easily get to 2nd Street in Playa Del Carmen where they leave from. Colectivos are also good for a few people, larger groups can find it hard to get seats in one van. Colectivos will leave you in the highway in front of the entrance of Xplor Park. When you are leaving the colectivos will pick you up from the highway.
    4. A last option is a rental car. This makes sense if you are renting a car for a few days or are staying in Cancun or Tulum and have a group with you going to the park. Parking is easy at Xplor and is free.

  1. We went to Xplor on our third day of vacation and we think it was out best time every! Best zip lines and we should know since we have been to 5 countries and been on most zip lines. Super cool park and so close to Playa del Carmen.

  2. After going to both Xplor and Xel Ha it was a toss up between my kids but I thik we had more fun in Xplor park. THe zip lines and underground caves were spectacular. It rained a little but we did not mind since it was part underground and we were wet from the zip lines and swimming.

  3. Question: I will be checking out this area around Christmas, and I am not getting any responses from the parks whether they are open Dec 23-26?
