We had a 3 day pass but could have done it all in 1 day. The reason we didn't was because the park got so busy after 1100, it was chaos. So we went in at opening time and left at midday every day. The sea trek (we did the stingray close encounter) is fantastic and a must do. There... More

Fantastic water park. The lazy river was a blast. Food was excellent at number 36. There were a few more restaurants that's the only one we tried. Snorkelling wasn't the best because there were too many people making the water murky so you couldn't really see the fish properly unless you found an undisturbed cove. My friends went swimming with... More

2nd visit. Something for everyone. Wildlife, entertainment, history, shopping, food and natural beauty. The river swim and cemetery are not to be missed. It's pricey so plan to spend the whole day.

First let me tell you the price for two adults, with transport from our hotel, admission to the park and a buffet lunch for two: $290.20 (at current exchange rate). You get one beer for each adult with the meal. It is the "Xcaret Plus"(Admission, buffet, snorkel equipment and a locker) Now that that is out of the way, let's... More

From the beautifully groomed landscape to the sea turtle exhibits or snorkeling in the pristine waters of this Mexican paradise, you are sure to enjoy this beautiful park. Take a ride floating through the underground river filled with breathtaking beauty. Even if you are a non-swimmer like me! All life jackets are provided and the guides are always at your... More

Great seeing the animals, they had a few indigenous species which was interesting to see. We floated down the river that took approx. 25 minutes. It's long but worth it because it's a nice way to cool off. Not for everyone, although you can exit before the end of the float.

This attraction was connected to our hotel so it was very convenient. The price of admission was quite high but when you realize all of the amazing things to do and see it is well worth it! What I thought was a very cool concept was the photo package that you are able to scan your wristband and take photos.... More

We were part of a large group visiting Xcaret as part of a conference trip. For the most part explored the site in smaller groups and on our own. It was a wonderful experience from start to finish and I would recommed it for families with kids of all ages, for couples and singles too. It truly has something of... More
