Wanna Help Haul a Flock of Flamingos?

The Occidental Grand Xcaret, located next to the eco-archeological Xcaret Park in Riviera Maya, Mexico, is giving guests two unique ways to get a hands-on conservation experience.
Option 1: an opportunity to get up and close and personal with the hotel's Flamingo Flock as a trainer. Every day hotel guests can help park trainers carry the flamingos one-by-one into a public area during their "walk around times" in the morning and afternoon. Talk about getting "hands on" with the local wildlife!
Option 2: join in a Manatee Rescue. Thee resort's marine specialists rescued the first manatee and a second was later born at the park. Guests can take part in a Manatee Encounter at any time during a stay, and it's all for the benefit and continuation of the program.
