Ziplining in Cancun has never felt so good! With so many options available it can be quite tiring to evaluate which is the best for you, let us help you see Selvatica with fresh eyes… So that you can choose wisely, and have a blast!

  1. Green as Can Be:

We’re not only talking about our location (which is also pretty amazing as it is centered in the Cancun Jungle) but about how Selvatica cares for the environment! So let’s get this very clear: Selvatica was built in a way that as little as possible trees were chopped off.

From the moment you arrive it’s very clear to see that the jungle it is situated in is pretty untouched. If you care for the planet and want to have fun, Selvatica helps you accomplish that! On the other hand, our biggest competitor has a mix of man-made environment and underground caves.

Selvatica also invites you to contribute to the program Seed of Life, which is based on diminishing carbon-based pollution. This is done by trying to balance out the tree to carbon emitters ratio. Selvatica’s Seed of Life program has helped to plant over 300,000 trees in the area!

2. A Genuine & Grounding Experience

First of all, one of the big advantages Selvatica has is that you won’t be waiting in Disney style lines for anything. Our programs and experiences are organized in a way that there is minimum waiting involved. Although you won’t be roaming around by yourself, and choosing what activity to do first, our guides DEFINITELY make up for it.

If there is something people are always satisfied with at Selvatica, it is the special atmosphere and customer service. We want you to treasure each moment spent here, therefore our staff is full of loving, fun people that are passionate about their jobs.

Selvatica’s Wildlife & Activities in the Jungle!

Join Us!

Explore the depths of the jungle with Selvatica… Don’t miss out on the chance to see some of the wild species that live in the Caribbean’s  tropical rainforests. Selvatica’s activities in the jungle will awaken your adventurous side and fill you with excitement!

What makes Selvatica special?

Unlike most theme parks in the zone, Selvatica is NOT in a man made environment! It sounds surprising, but most of the “natural” caves, rivers, and the vegetation in the other adventure or nature parks are actually artificial!

But don’t worry, Selvatica’s trees and overall environment is natural, making your experience there be wild and genuine.

Wildlife in Riviera Maya

One of the reasons why people choose to visit the Caribbean is the exotic flora and fauna found in its tropical jungles! Meet some of the species that inhabit Riviera Maya’s jungles…

Howler Monkey

mexican-black-howler-monkey-activities-in-the-jungle

The Mexican black howler monkey is one of the biggest monkey species in America. On average, it’s around 30 inches long – not including its tail.  These monkeys usually live in groups of 4 to 11 members. They’re strict herbivores who consume a variety of fruits, plants and leaves. Sadly, they are an endangered species, so only in special areas like Quintana Roo you might catch a glimpse of them.

Crocodile

The Morelet’s Crocodile is also known as an Alligator. It is relatively small, usually less than 3m in length. They have a broad snout, and are greyish brown in color with dark bands and spots on their bodies and tails. They mainly live in areas of freshwater, including swamps and marshes in forested areas.

 Hawk

Hawks spend their days gracefully soaring over open areas or perched on cottonwoods, willows, and mesquites along lowland streams. Female hawks are generally larger than their male counterparts. A hawk can live up to 20 years, although 13 to 15 years is about the norm. They patiently watch for lizards, then catch them with a swift dart toward the ground. A hawk can live up to 20 years, although 13 to 15 years is about the norm. You can see them flying over the jungles in Cancun.

Puma

The jaguar , the largest feline in America and the third in the world (after the lion and the tiger), inhabits the tropical jungles of Quintana Roo, although it is an endangered species.  Many ancient American cultures such as the Maya and Aztec, featured the jaguar in their mythologies, it was often regarded as a symbol of strength.

Barracuda

mexico-great-barracuda-activities-in-the-jungle

The Mexican Barracudas are characterized by their overall snake-like appearance and predominant silver color with black markings, which include a strong lateral line and stripes on the sides. The barracuda is highly evolved to be a master predator in its environment—the fish has been developing its skills for 50 million years!

 

You can get to know all of these species and more when visiting the Riviera Maya. Don’t miss out on the fun, and enjoy Selvatica’s activities in the jungle to feel a true connection with Earth and nature!

What is a Cenote?

What is a Mayan Cenote?

Selvatica is Latin America’s number one adventure park. This isn’t a marketing slogan. This is reflective of thousands of peer reviews from Trip Advisor. The results are in. Selvatica is Cancun’s number one outdoor activity—for several consecutive years now.

What makes Selvatica so great? Well first off, no one does adventure like we do. Whether it’s our blazing ziplines over the Mayan jungle canopy, or our badass Polaris ATV ripping its way through the muddy terrain, we know what will get your heart pumping. We know adrenaline.

But part of what makes us unique is how we culminate the experience. It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish right? We make sure that everyone who takes part in our wide variety of adventures available—don’t forget about our wild bungee swing—leaves feeling refreshed, revitalized, and reborn.

What’s our secret? In a word: Mother-Nature. Think of it like this…we have our own fountain of youth, right here on the property. It’s called, a cenote. Now before you look at a dictionary definition of a cenote (believe me, this will only make things more confusing), allow us to explain what a cenote is, and why it’s the perfect finale to an amazing outdoor adventure in Cancun.

What is a Cenote?

Every year, millions of tourists flock to The Riviera Maya to swim and dive in its hundreds of crystal clear, freshwater swimming areas called cenotes. The word ‘cenote’ originates from the Yucatec Maya, meaning ‘ts’onot’, or ‘any location with accessible groundwater’.

Cenotes are sinkholes that develop over millions of years. In a nutshell, a cenote is the result of acidic water collapsing the limestone bedrock and uniting the top body of water with groundwater. In a sense, all cenotes are fundamentally united.

Mayan History

Centuries earlier, the Mayans reigned supreme in the Yucatan by relying on cenotes as their primary source of water. Unlike other great civilizations that depended on a network of above-ground river systems, the Mayans used a subterranean network of access points connected to groundwater. They also viewed cenotes as a portal to communicate with their gods, Chac, and Xibalba; the god of rain and the Mayan mythical underworld, respectively.

American Misperception

Some American’s may be wondering, as I originally did: why on earth would I want to willingly swim in an acknowledged sinkhole?

Growing up in Florida, I viewed sinkholes as your worst enemy. It has destroyed many homes insidiously, over the course of a decade. Some, overnight. Just a few years ago, a 37-year-old man in Florida was swallowed alive in his sleep by a sinkhole.

However, there remains a BIG fundamental difference between a Florida sinkhole and a Riviera Maya cenote.

The difference is, Florida sinkholes have a top layer of sand and clay. Most of the time, this top layer has held up. Other times, it has crumbled. Those are the times you hear about on the news.

Mayan Reality

In the Riviera Maya however, the collapse has already taken place long ago. There is ZERO inherent risk of collapse like there is with Florida sinkholes. With cenotes, the water gets ultra-filtered through the ground, removing any particle that would leave the water looking murky.

All that remains is a fun and safe freshwater swimming area with shockingly crystal clear clarity and brilliantly beautiful turquoise blue water. Also, due to its lack of salinity, you won’t have to worry about irritated eyes or salinized hair or swimwear.

Selvatica’s Farewell Gift

Now that you have a better understanding of what a cenote is, I want you to picture this. You’ve soared through the air like superman on our ziplines. You’ve boldly jumped on our bungee swing. You’ve tested your agility on our wobbly hanging aerial bridges. And finally, you’ve flung mud in every direction with our fearsome Polaris ATV.

You’re sweaty. You’re muddy. You’re tired. Is this how you want to enter the bus?

Of course not. Allow us to present the perfect solution: Selvatica’s cenote. Jump in our very own fountain of youth, and become reborn. Swim in crystal clear water and connect with a reinvigorating force of nature. Words can’t describe how amazingly refreshed you’ll feel when you come out of the water. There’s no better climax to a wild day of adventure.
Go Wild. Get Dirty. Have Fun…then

Jump in. Get Wet. Be Reborn.

This is the Selvatica Experience.
