Great place to spend the day

Spent 1/2 day there and saw probably 1/3 of the park. Our fravorites were the river and snorkeling in the ocean inlet. Would go again for sure!

This theme park cannot be done in a single day! We experienced the cave river float, the exotic bird aviary, butterfly pavilion, puma and jaguar exhibit, enjoyed an excellent meal and were out of time for the day in port off of the cruise ship. There are plenty of restaurant venues, excellent beaches with lounge chairs for enjoying, fantastic exhibits... More

We had so much fun here! Make sure you buy the photo pass! It is worth every penny as photos are a huge part of the park experience. They have 3 underground rivers to float, they are magical and beautiful, they are open to the sky sometimes and underground sometimes. The foliage is beautiful and there are many places to... More

I loved this place! It's definitely worth the money. I absolutely loved seeing all the different wildlife the place had to offer, all up close! There were sea turtles, dolphins, sharks, sting rays, pumas, and parrots were flying all over the park. They also have several beaches and pools to cool off in, and the views are incredible!! There's also... More

The place was absolutely phenomenal. I went with my girlfriend and we had a blast. Bring your swimming suit. Staff barely speaks english so I recommend taking a bus there and then on the way back take a taxi after the 7pm show. DONT BUY THEIR SUNBLOCK, IT DOES NOT WORK. Sunblock cannot be "all natural", so buy CeraVe or... More

The underground river through 45mins of Cenotes was fantastic, the snorkeling was grt, the other attractions of the park like the bird sanctuary, the butterfly sanctuary, Pumas & Jaguars, and the mayan village were wonderful, and if you visit Xcaret Park, you must stay for the show at night, it was MAGNIFICENT. The tour guides were FANTASTIC, and the organisation... More

Being involved for a number of years in biosphere reforestation projects, I wasn't all that thrilled at first about going to a manicured nature-park. And, it is true that a fair amount of the venues are not included in the basic ticket price and are priced a bit high for questionable value. But I must say, the over-all experience was... More

We went to Xcaret Park last year for a couples days and this year we took our son, daughter in law, and three granddaughters and they loved it. We swam with dolphins, took in the Adrenalina ride and stayed for the evening show. Spectacular!

We brought our 4 and 6 year old to this excursion and they loved everything. Their favourite part was swimming through the caves. We did this a total of 3 times. This was also our favourite part. We didn't like that you could only leave at 430 or 830. We wanted to stay longer but knew that our kids wouldn't... More
