Swim with sharks, dolphins, stingrays and evening show is spectacular. Park is huge wont do everything in one day, and reasonably priced if you can get a 2-4-1 on the dolphin swim

REally enjoyed this adventure. There was a lot I couldn't do because if you have heart trouble or high blood pressure you can't go in... More

We came here when our cruise stopped in the area. We got off the boat at around 9 and had to be back by 4 I think, so with the bus ride from the port to the park and back, we only got about 4-5 hours total to spend in the park which was definitely not enough. There are a... More

This is my 3rd visit to Xcaret and loved it every time. There is so much to see and do. The food is great and the show at night is excellent. I love floating down the rivers.

If you love conservation, and ecology then this marvel won't disappoint. Set amongst the heart of the Mexican jungle it has almost everything to offer in regards to the various species (albeit Animal or floral) this beautiful country has. It is definitely a place to visit and you will literally have a great time! You MUST try the underground water... More
