Jaguars Island at Xcaret Mexico
WHERE THE SACRED ANIMAL OF THE MAYAN CULTURE WATCHES YOU
Hours: 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
The king of Xcaret is curious and attentive to whatever is happening on his island. To the ancient Maya, the jaguar was a sacred animal because of its strength, speed, and beautiful skin, which they considered a supernatural entity called Balam.
Surely you have seen it represented in their paintings, sculptures, and ceramics. Here, you can contemplate the jaguar of Xcaret Mexico, among the leafy trees of its island, sharing the shadow with the puma... and always vigilant.
Due to maintenance works in the jaguar habitat, the exhibition will be closed from August 24th, 2018, until further notice.
