The night show made this trip. That show was awesome with dancing, singing, and lots of action. This was a very moving and often patriotic show covering much of the history of Mexico. Many of the locals sang along with the show and the closing number was very rousing. Much of the park is man made or artificial. The river... More

So I always had xcaret in mind and always wanted to visit this park. I'm not sure what it was if I was so into it that maybe I had my exception to high. This park was average to me. We did the sea trek, I wish the visibility was better. Anderalina is MUST TO DO. I love it. It... More

We spent a day here and enjoyed every minute. The scenery and water is beautiful. If we had another day we would have gone back!

I agree abslutely with several reviewers. All in one - a safari/nature park, a water park, a fantastic aquarium and a memorable show. Excellent fun. A good idea to have a stroller for kids. My Pre K girl complained of being tired, pain in legs at some point in the day. Luckily we were with friends who had a stroller... More

This was a very pretty park but somehow I thought it was more natural than man made. We went with another couple and overall had fun but by the end of the day we were exhausted. The underwater river was fun, then we relaxed by the beach and had some drinks, the night entreatment was fabulous but the seats were... More

You cannot see how humans have work trough the jungle in order to create this amazing pace. There are so many attractions to see and enjoy one day is just not enough. I only wish they would not have dolphins as I consider this animal cruelty.

There was just so much to do here we did not have the time or energy to fit it in. We paid for some extras as it was our honeymoon and loved the Snuba diving and Sea Trek with Sting Rays. For Sea Trekking you don't even need to be able to swim, you walk on the seabed! The show... More

We got strong recommendations from friends to go to this park and stay back for the nightly show. It is a nice park but doesn't justify the expensive tickets. Besides almost everything is extra money. We took the Plus package. Kids had fun swimming in the underground river, the wildlife is minimal. Butterfly pavilion is nice. The night show is... More

This trip is worth trying at least once. I laugh at the people who give it low ratings and are "sooo dissapointed" in it. Do your research and find our exactly what it is you're getting yourself into. If you expect visitng a full blown zoo, then go to a zoo! Xcaret is NOT a zoo! Are things pricey, uh,... More
