Gorgeous ocean view from XCaret Eco-Park near Tulum, Mexico.
Without a doubt, one of the more beautiful and amazing places on the Riviera Maya coast is XCaret . It is an eco-park that features some amazing flora, fauna, and water experiences where you can really touch nature.
We were able to touch sea turtles and see giant pools filled with hundreds of baby turtles the park is trying to rescue. In Mexico, since 1990, marine turtles are protected by Federal Law. Xcaret joined efforts with government institutions and has built a special program to protect two species of turtles that nest in Quintana Roo's beaches: the Green Turtle and the Loggerhead Turtle.
This was an amazing experience for our family because we were able to really be involved with the animals at the park - it was a true science education. Click through below to see the photo series of up close and personal animal experiences we were able to have. It was wonderful!
