Modern life is fascinating, our digital world moves at a fast pace and while we get pulled along by our screens and our social networks, we often forget to take a moment and breathe. To connect with our physical selves and the natural world around us.
A true experience in the jungle is just what you need to reset, recharge and refresh and Selvatica Cancun is the perfect place to do just that.
“A brave heart and a courteous tongue. They shall carry thee far through the jungle, manling.” ~ Rudyard Kipling.
While Cancun is famous around the world for its spectacular beaches and luxury resorts, what many travelers may not know is that the city is surrounded by endless stretches of jungle waiting to be explored!
The Yucatan Peninsula is home to a lush tropical rainforest full of life, exotic species of plants and animals and the potential for adventure.
Explore the Most Beautiful Cancun Ecosystems
The Yucatan Peninsula is one of the most densely forested regions in the world (the state of Quintana Roo is 90% jungle!) and is home to four main ecosystems; jungle, mangrove, coral reefs and savanna.
At Selvatica Cancun, we are delighted to show you our little corner of the planet where you’ll have a true experience in the jungle!
In building our home in the jungle, Selvatica Cancun has dedicated itself to conservation, creating minimal environmental impact for maximum natural fun and adventure.
We are more than just a Cancun zipline park (though we are really good at that part too!), we are a natural eco-park rich in tropical flora and fauna.
You may come for the adrenaline rush, but we promise that you’ll leave feeling more connected with nature and the planet!
Enjoy A True Experience in the Jungle at Selvatica!
What can you expect to see at Selvatica Cancun? Green, green, green as far as the eye can see! In the jungle you’ll find mahogany, red cedar, cacao, coconut palms and the majestic ceiba tree, ferns and lush exotic plants all around!Discover the chechen and chaca trees, one is toxic and the other is the cure and they are always found side by side.
Be sure to ask your guides to share the legend of how two Mayan warriors, brothers Kinich and Tizic, were transformed from men to these opposing trees for eternity! Hearing ancient Mayan tales passed down for generations, now that is a true jungle experience.
The jungle is home to a wide variety of tropical animals and birds, close your eyes and just listen. Hear the unique call of the mot mot bird as they lead you to the Selvatica Cancun cenote, the rustle of coatis (kind of like jungle raccoons) burrowing through the brush, and if you are lucky you may even spot one of the mischievous monkeys that call the jungle home.
The endangered jaguar leaves traces of its nocturnal visits to Selvatica, seeing a jaguar footprint is an exciting moment for all of us!
We know that you come to us for fun, adrenaline and adventure and oh boy, that is guaranteed in all our activities, but we invite you to take a moment to appreciate the nature all around us. Immerse yourself in nature and excitement!
