There are two reasons why millions of tourists flock every year to Cancun: for beauty and adventure. It’s easy to see why. Everywhere you look, there’s something gorgeous to look at. Everyone knows about the soft-sanded beaches. There’s also the piercingly turquoise waters. Let’s not forget about the sparkling cenotes throughout.
But Cancun is more than that…
There’s also a vast Mayan jungle daring you to conquer it.That’s the other side of Cancun. The side that invites adventure. Like we said, there are two ways to enjoy Cancun: looking (beauty) and doing (adventure).
Some people don’t like adrenaline. Others demand it. It’s their way of ‘feeling alive’. For fans of extreme excursions, Cancun is your playground. Here, you can be free. Unshackle the chains of polite society.
The question is:
When the Mayan jungle beckons, do you answer the call?
For those who shout ‘yes’. Please proceed. We’re going to let you in on a little secret.
For those still unsure: don’t give up yet. Nothing summons the spirit like, adventure. This is the perfect proving grounds for conquering fear.
So step up to the plate. This is your chance to have a jungle excursion in Cancun.
But where you may be asking?
If you’ve been here before, it’s obvious.The best Cancun adventure is Selvatica.
Look’s look at 5 of the best reasons why that’s true.
1.-Insane ziplines over a jungle canopy
Where’s the best place to zipline in Cancun? Selvatica! Selvatica is the premier adventure park in Cancun. Situated in the heart of the Mayan jungle, at Selvatica, anything is possible.
And that includes…
Soaring through the air, over a jungle canopy, upside-down on a zipline!
That’ll wake you up!
Need more? Try Selvatica’s vaunted Tarzania Zipline. Not all ziplines were created equally.
Let me explain:
Most ziplines follow a single path. You start at the top, and gravity takes you down. Not Tarzania. No, Tarzania blazes its own trail. First, you go down.
But guess what? Now you’re going back up again. Then left. Then right.
It’s truly is zipline madness.
2.-Get Muddy on a badass Polaris ATV
Think back to your childhood. Remember when you could run freely through the mud? Return to your youth. Selvatica grants you license to ‘get dirty’ again.
Here’s how. Hop on a Polaris ATV. Here’s a tip: make SURE it’s a Polaris.
What’s the difference? Ever been on a buddy’s beat-up pickup truck? You know. Where the suspension is shot and you can feel every bump on the road? Then you drive a Cadillac and it feels like you’re driving on a cloud.
That’s the Polaris difference.
It’s not only that, though. It’s instant acceleration. The stop-on-a-dime brake system. And if anything happens? You have state-of-the-art roll bars for protection.
With nothing to worry about, the Mayan jungle is yours to conquer. One more tip: when they offer you a pair of goggles….wear them! The last thing you need is mud in your eye!
3.-Don’t look down! Hanging Aerial Bridges ahead
Do you have a fear of heights? The ability to stay calm when it matters most? Then prove it.
Walk, high up in the air, over wobbly hanging aerial bridges. But what if you fall? Fear not. You’ll be strapped up to a cable of course!
But don’t let that fool you. Even though you know you’re not in mortal danger, it still gets your heart racing.
4.-The fountain of youth is real: they’re called Cenotes
You know that feeling? The one you get when you come out of the shower after long grueling day? There’s nothing more refreshing. It’s completely reinvigorating. And how couldn’t you be?
Just a moment ago, you were filthy and worn out. Now? Full of life and clean as a whistle. Now take that feeling…and multiply it by a 100. That’s how you’ll feel when you exit our cenote. Remember, by this point, you’re going to be covered in mud, sweat, and exhaustion.
Think about it: is that how you want to drive home?
Instead, hang on to a zipline and enter our cenote with a splash! Is that too easy for you? Need something bolder? Try diving headfirst off a 60-foot ledge! Speaking from personal experience, if you do the big jump, point your toes downwards.
Just trust me on that. =)
5.-Make a difference in the world with our ‘Seed of Life’ program
What’s the Selvatica difference? Here, you’re not just another ticket sold. We’re in this together. When you’re here, you’re part of the tribe. We have your back. Your tribe leader will be with you for the whole journey.
Every year, we thank the jungle. Why? Because without the jungle, there is no Selvatica. Every year thousands of trees are cut down. The worst part? They’re being cut down faster than they’re growing.
Together, we can help. It’s easy. Place a seed in an expired helmet. Then dig a hole, and place the helmet inside. That’s it. With this simple project, we have shrunk our carbon footprint by MILLIONS of tons. 7.8 to be exact.
Honor the forest. Without it, there’d be no Cancun jungle adventure!
