Amazing place with a lot of options to enjoy nature, dolphins, zoo, cenotes. Great buffet restaurant (including depending on your paid choice). The night show is unbelievable.

Unique experience. This park is surrounded nature , clear water, super clean. The maintenance at Xcaret is well done. Food is amazing 😉. Authentic flavor of Mexican food. Worth every second that.

Nice experience, not really convinced about food, but the experience is a must, loved snorkeling, and dolphin swim, the shuttle service was rude and disrespectful, however the park service was good, as I said I don’t suggest the buffet for lunch

Floating down the underground rivers is the best part of this park. There is nothing to do at this park worth the $99 price tag.More

If you are staying at Occidental resort. Xcaret park is a must. So much to do and see. A little pricey but it is so worth it.
