Xcaret is a water amusement park in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo, where the fall of 2005 took place the presentation of the MTV Latin Music Awards.
Xcaret is located south of Playa del Carmen on the 307 freeway, and just 45 minutes south of Cancun, where also organized bus tours.
To reach the park is also directly through the Hotel Occidental Grand Flamenco Xcaret, which is located next door. From there you can be brought to the park by a small canal with a boat. However, this is only allowed travelers
The park is nestled in a tropical landscape and all the buildings are modeled on the Mayan style. Center of the complex is a kind of musical theater, which is modeled on a ball court at that time Maya sites. The audience sits there like in a stadium for a place around, on a nightly two-hour, final show takes place, representing the history of the conquest of Mexico and the cultural differences of the different Mexican regions and states in the more than 100 artists. The show is thereby shaped by actors and descendants of the Maya.
