Lots to do and see. We really enjoyed the zoo, aquarium, beach, and show. My tip is to forego the locker and just use the free bag service they have for the river float. We also didn't really need the towels we brought along. We...More

Was a nice park, well organized map and trails. Seems a little expensive for what is there but you have to do something while in Playa. Birds, butterflies, cemetery, rivers, turtles. It was a fun day.

This is a must place to visit when coming to Cancun!! You need 2 days to be able to enjoy the park as there is so much to do and see.

I enjoyed my experience here! I just found that there are to many things to do so I think it should be a two day visit. Loved the show at the end of the day!

I booked with the travel club group I'm in when I got to the resort; however I believe you may get a better deal on discounts from your home.
