Xcaret Park part 2

There is a horse show every evening for about 25 minutes.

The Park is almost fully open but parts are still being rehabilitated after last year's hurricane season.

The Park also incorporates several sets of ruins, as does the resort next door.

Some local performances doing traditional music outside the park's auditorium, the 6,000 seater Grand Tlachco.

The show they put on inside the auditorium is spectacular, beginning with various portrayals of Mayan myth, history and games. It was followed by Mexican music and dance from various States. Very little English translation it's easy to figure out what's going on. The packed house of locals who sang along to many of the Mexican songs made it an electric atmosphere nearer the end. The Mayan games were a little weird - think hurling played with a fireball, and playing soccer using your bum.
