Flavors of Cancun & Riviera Maya
Visiting Riviera Maya is a lot more than just spending the day at the beach; it’s having the opportunity to live unique experiences and when the night comes to discover different possibilities to enjoy night attractions in Cancun: from a romantic dinner with the view of the lagoon to a theme dinner full of fun.
Come with us on this journey and get to know the other side of Cancun at night:
I am a citizen of the Quintana Roo Mexican State, where the Riviera Maya is located, and if someone asks me which is one of the must-see shows in Riviera Maya, I would definitely recommend “Xcaret Mexico Espectacular” at Xcaret Park. A celebration full of music and tradition that will take you to travel through history and Mexican culture, an experience that goes beyond just a show of dance, music and cultural elements. At the Gran Tlachco you delight all of your senses with a delicious complementary dinner that will make you live a culinary experience through the flavors of Mexico: I recommend delighting your palate with the Tlachco Dinner at Xcaret. A dinner that achieves a perfect combination of traditional ingredients with the art of contemporary gastronomy in a unique environment.
