    XCARET is a beautiful park! The layout is well thought out, and there are things to do for everyone.
    We ended up purchasing the Adrenaline Speedboat activity, with Manual as our captain. Manual and the guide were full of energy and had us laughing and excited the whole time. It was great, lots of fun, you get fully wet, so you cool off too. The aviary was great too, for my son who loves birds. Also to explore everything you need to spend the whole day there. The last bus leaves at 9:30. It makes for a long fun day.

    The only down side to Xcaret was the cost. After paying Xcaret plus for a family of 4, which included a buffet and the speed boat, and snacks, and tips, we easily spent almost $1000. So because of that it was hard to give 5 stars.

    I would return to Xcaret.

    Carlos was fantastic!! We were taken to Chichen Itza from Playa Mujeres, so we had about a 2 hour car ride there and then back! We had such great conversations with him the whole time we were traveling! He answered our many questions, half of which were about Mexico in general! Carlos genuinely cares about the history, and about separating the fact from fiction. He changed what we thought we knew about Chichen Itza, and contrasted the symbolism of the serpent used in Chichen Itza with the symbolism used by the Aztecs and later the Spaniards. The restaurant in Valladolid was delicious, and we appreciated Carlos’ recommendations for what to order! When we arrived to the cenote, he was very patient and encouraged us to take our time swimming. Oh, and did I mention he takes wonderful pictures???? I have probably about 200 total pics from our tour that day, all thanks to Carlos posing us or taking candids! He even followed up with us after the trip, which really meant a lot to us! We would love to take another tour with him and highly recommend Carlos and this tour company!

    What a fun filled trip! Maryna, Simon and Guillermo were the best guides and were so helpful. This trip was great because it had 3 activities in one. The cenotes were our favorite (you can borrow water shoes) as they are so unique and unlike anything we’ve ever done. Definitely recommended! Thank you Maryna for being the best guide throughout the day!

    This is a must see!! The performers are top notch and it was non stop performances all night!! We purchased the wine and appetizers ticket, nothing really special, dry wine and average bites of food. I really wanted to try the dinner experience but my hubby is a picky eater and was unsure. Overall it was an incredible night for the senses!!!

    There was just so much to enjoy at Xcaret that it’s really hard to choose a favorite experience! These parks are so much fun. The cost of a day ticket and night show was $150ish and WELL worth it! My favorite is the swimming through the jungle mangroves with warriors in full regalia waiting to attack you (pretend) and take photos with you at several turns, the fish underwater, tunnels, and so on. However, I also really enjoyed the show at the end of the day even though it was in Spanish. The free roaming animals in the park is awesome. A pack of howler monkeys put on a performance in some of the trees while beautiful parrots were all over in the trees. Swimming with the dolphins was really fun. You feel a real connection with them and if you didn’t care about saving dolphins before that, you’ll be a staunch supporter afterwards. This place is like a swim park combined with an adventure park and zoo all rolled into one. When you get tired, you can simply buy a cold drink and relax or even take a nap right on the sandy shore between coconut trees. Lunch and supper were included in our tickets and were amazing! My wife and I had a second honeymoon renting a home right on the beach within swimming distance to the coral reefs offshore and we visited a few of the eco-parks and had a blast at all of them, but I’d say Xcaret was our favorite, so much so that we took all our kids with us the following year. The family still talks about that trip! If I could give it 10 thumbs up, I would have. I honestly don’t get why we don’t have such parks in the Everglades.

    Me and my wife thoroughly enjoyed this amazing day!
    It was very informative and had such an brilliant experience.
    Our guide Carlos and driver Eric we're both very friendly and went out of their way all day to make sure sure everyone on the tour was well looked after and enjoying themselves.
    Carlos the whole day did an amazing job in giving a very in depth tour in which I found very interesting.
    Yes the weather was incredibly hot and we had to be picked up at 05:40am but it was well the worth it.
    Thank you again for the incredible experience that has made a day for us to remember forever.

    The sea turtles were amazing to see in their natural environment! The operators were very professional, and Laura was extremely knowledgeable. The cenote was out of this world! I did not expect a cave tour with such "refreshing" water. I highly recommend this excursion to anyone looking for an adventure for the entire family!

    This was by far my favorite excursion from visiting Playa del Carmen! The tour was wonderful and exciting and we were able to see local culture and meet people. Carlos was a fantastic guide and knew a lot about the area and locals. We were able to help our families and buy them bags with some small items to help them out which was really great that we had that opportunity. We bought pretty bracelets that some of the families from the village made! They also made us a delicious snack and the children were so sweet! Would definitely do this tour again and would recommend to anyone visiting Playa del Carmen!!!

    I loved this tour. Our tour guides Carlos and Saul did an amazing job in explaining in details everything to know about the ruins and were super charismatic, making it even better. They also made sure we were taken well care of and handed out water at each stop since the heat and humidity was intense ( atleast for our group). Over all if you would like to know more about Tulúm and Cobá ruins this is definitely the tour to book.

    We got the included bus (which we had to go to a different hotel for but apparently this can be changed if you contact them) so we got there before 9 from Riviera Maya.This meant we had no queue to check in and we were first to zip-line. I would recommend doing zip-line first as it does get busy. Everything was efficient and staff were friendly. We did all the activities by about lunch time and by then queues for things were big. The food was a good buffet and the snack bar was nice for a relax and a hot chocolate to get some more energy.
    Water shoes are needed but they sell loads in the shops if you don't already have some.
    The bus home wasn't until 5 so it was a long day and we didn't really need that long there. There is plenty of hammocks and things to sit in though so can relax for a bit.
    Wear biodegradable sun cream as they will take yours off you if now.
    Really good day out, fun and nice to have a bit of time out of the sun too in the underground activities. I think the parks are quite expensive for what they are- nice that they're all inclusive but compared to Disney/Universal etc (I understand these are much bigger companies) expensive for 1 day and not as much to do.

    We had the pleasure of being hosted by Jean Paul around Tulum Ruins and a visit to Taak Bi Ha cenote. We were very impressed by his knowledge and couldn’t do enough for myself, my husband and our two children. The street Tacos were especially delicious and a welcome surprise! 5* service, felt very looked after all morning, from a very pleasant and knowledgeable tour guide! Thank you JP!

    This was by far my favorite experience in a long time. The caves and underground River were just fascinating. Our guide Miguel made this trip so awesome, he was very knowledgeable but so much fun. I have recommended this trip to so many people even outside of Mexico. I would do this excursion every time I come to Cancun/Playa Del Carmen!

    We really loved the trip, it was so much fun, our tourguides Katia and Steffi were just great, we got explained everything in perfect german, we got lots of drinks and the food was also really nice, the crew (drivers etc.) were also awesome, just as the car and boat. Contoy was really beautiful, wonderful nature, beach and animals. They really care about protecting Nature, so please don't wear sunscreen to the Trip and protect youself from the sun with long clothing. It was our second tour with ocean tours, the first one was with Ruben, who was also an awesome guide!
