There are two reasons why millions of tourists flock every year to Cancun: for beauty and adventure. Its easy to see why. Everywhere you look, theres something gorgeous to look at. Everyone knows about the soft-sanded beaches. Theres also the piercingly turquoise waters. Lets not forget about the sparkling cenotes throughout.
But Cancun is more than that
Theres also a vast Mayan jungle daring you to conquer it.Thats 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 dont like adrenaline. Others demand it. Its 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. Were going to let you in on a little secret.
For those still unsure: dont 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 youve been here before, its obvious.The best Cancun adventure is Selvatica.
Looks look at 5 of the best reasons why thats true.
1.-Insane ziplines over a jungle canopy
Wheres 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!
Thatll wake you up!
Need more? Try Selvaticas 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 youre going back up again. Then left. Then right.
Its 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.
Heres how. Hop on a Polaris ATV. Heres a tip: make SURE its a Polaris.
Whats the difference? Ever been on a buddys 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 youre driving on a cloud.
Thats the Polaris difference.
Its not only that, though. Its 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.-Dont 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. Youll be strapped up to a cable of course!
But dont let that fool you. Even though you know youre not in mortal danger, it still gets your heart racing.
4.-The fountain of youth is real: theyre called Cenotes
You know that feeling? The one you get when you come out of the shower after long grueling day? Theres nothing more refreshing. Its completely reinvigorating. And how couldnt 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. Thats how youll feel when you exit our cenote. Remember, by this point, youre 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
Whats the Selvatica difference? Here, youre not just another ticket sold. Were in this together. When youre here, youre 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? Theyre being cut down faster than theyre growing.
Together, we can help. Its easy. Place a seed in an expired helmet. Then dig a hole, and place the helmet inside. Thats 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, thered be no Cancun jungle adventure!
