Xcaret series here.
Don’t leave the park without taking in the Spectacular Show at night. That was everybody’s advice to us when we told them about our planned trip to Xcaret. Apparently, it’s really magnificent and fabulous.
Heeding their advice, we made sure we were in the auditorium early so that we could get good seats. We had the pick of seats having gotten there early.
On the way to the auditorium was the Hacienda Henequenera, which houses the Mexican Folk Art Museum.
There is an attached gift shop, where I picked a piece of souvenir - a cat figurine.
The Spectacular Show is a Mexican history lesson presented in colorful dances and songs and dramatizations. Spectacular is definitely perfect to describe the presentation. The husband and I were engrossed with what we were seeing that we purchased the DVD of the show. It was very educational. The show touched on Mayan culture up to the colonization of Spain and up to the present day Mexico. The part where every Mexican state makes a presentation in the form of a dance or song is enlightening. There are very distinctive differences in traditional clothing and colors in every state. We have yet to watch the DVD, but I’m sure I’ll get more information once we do.
It was at this time that all our photo gadgets were dying out, as you can imagine. We have been taking photos nonstop all day long and at 8 pm, understandably they would be worn out just like us. Our batteries were dead by the time we got to the bus bound for the resort.
Kind of ballgame.
Another game that is played with something like a hockey stick, except the ball is burning.
The arrival of the Spanish conquistadores.
