Resting on 330 acres of lush Mayan jungle, Selvática is called the Adventure Kingdom. If the name’s not convincing enough, think a 12 zipline circuit, ATVs, offroading, and zipping into a freshwater cenote to top it all off. The hot new thing at Selvática is their Tarzania Human Coaster which claims to have evolved from the love of ziplines and rollercoasters. We like the sounds of that. What about you? The staff members at the park are very helpful and friendly and are happy to help you become “a citizen of the jungle!” Bring: sunscreen, a bathing suit and a towel.
