The Perfect Extreme Outdoor Adventure in Cancun

What makes for the perfect extreme outdoor adventure in Cancun? Here at Selvatica, we have over 20 years of experience that allows us to answer that question with authority. Let’s delve in a bit further. Here’s a divide-and-conquer breakdown:


What makes an activity extreme? Or better put, what is the common denominator between all extreme activities? They all have an element of speed. If you’re racing at 3 MPH, that’s not extreme right? Second element is heights. This isn’t a requirement, but it doesn’t hurt to have either.

The 3rd element—the most important—is uncertainty. It is the most important because uncertainty breeds fear. And fear breeds challenge. That’s what this is all about. Challenging yourself in the face of fear and uncertainty and coming out victorious and triumphant.


We are all creatures of nature. Yet, we spend most of our lives enclosed in our offices and homes. That’s fine for most of your life. But sometimes you need to reconnect with your roots. Science has proven that people who spend time outdoors are less stressed and happier!

Outdoor enthusiasts are even more creative, have greater brain function and age more gracefully.

The lesson? When nature calls. You answer.


An adventure is a narrative. It’s a story about the time you were challenged. Every adventure has moments of trepidation and anxiety. Yet, you pushed yourself through each obstacle. You dug down deep and summoned your greatest self.
Allow adventure to make yourself a better you.
Here's a look at all the services we provide you in order to have the perfect EXTREME OUTDOOR ADVENTURE:


Traveling in a foreign country can be a daunting task. You’re on vacation! Let us do the work! We’ll pick you up from your hotel AND drop you back off**. Transportation should take roughly an hour each way, depending on your starting point. You should return to your hotel approximately 5 and a half hours after pickup.

**There are some hotels that do not permit lobby pickups, so you may be redirected to a designated pickup spot.


Upon arrival, you can leave all of your valuables (you don’t want your wallet disappearing into the dense Mayan jungle!) in a locker provided for you. Of course, if you need to ‘go’ or freshen up, there are bathrooms and showers on site.

When you’re done with your adventure, you’re going to want something tangible to remember it by. That’s why we have the Souvenir Shop. Want to swim in the cenote but forgot your bathing suit? Don’t sweat it. You can purchase one at the Souvenir Shop. Want to commemorate your adventure with action photos? Our professional photographers will capture every moment so you can relive the experience with your friends and family for years to come.


All that adventure got your stomach grumbling? We have delicious Mexican food and beverages, like fajitas and jamaica (iced tea), and other drinks available. Vegetarians, don’t fret. We haven’t overlooked you. There are vegetarian meals there too.


First, let’s talk about safety. Throughout our 20+ years of experience, we have put safety first and foremost. We know how to keep you safe and secure. One of our methods is to break you guys & gals into manageable groups accompanied by one of our guides. Our guides know all the DO’s and DON’T’s, so be sure to pay attention to every instruction and guideline they give.

Most importantly, wear the helmet and harness they provide you with, exactly as they instruct you to.
