This is not the cheapest park around but they have carved out a beautiful park and preserved the natural surroundings. Different levels of entrance fees depending on what you would like to do. Under ground river spectacular. Worth having a look see.

In order to take advantage of the online discount pricing, you'll need to book a day ahead. The night pass, which is much affordable than the all day pass, only gives you access to the park starting at 3pm. Keep in mind that the underground river closes at 430pm, you'll need to pick and choose activities before the night show... More

Stunning and awesome time… underground river was beautiful and fun. Swam and played with dolphins and did SNUBA on the nearby reef. The show at the end of the day was excellent!

Beatiful theme park, lots of fun even with children. The water is cold but the way is beatiful. There are many animals to see, bat cave, aquarium, giant turtles. But, be prepared because it is expensive and many atractions are payed a side. Other catch is that "all inclusive" means only a buffet lunch at lunch time and anything else.... More

Xcaret was a blast! The river rides and the show was our favorite. The girld enjoyed the Kids Adventure - we were impressed by the staff in charge there. Professional and engaging. Glad we took the plus ticket, everything provided and worked smoothly. The show was great, especially when sitting next to super-enthusiastic mexicans :-)

If you wanna have fun this is the place! You have so many things to do and it is fun for everyone. We recommend to take the package with all pictures included. It is 79$ but the pictures are good quality and you can take advantage of their photographers on the site. Then they give you a usb to put... More

You will need a full day to see and do everything and there is lots of variety from everything from swimming down indoor rivers to exotic animals to sandy beaches to fun shows. Worth every penny.

We did a 1/2 day evening tour here and arrived Round 3:30 pm. We walked around the park for a couple of hours and saw most of it. Our primary reason for visit was the show. It was ok.nnas a non-Spanish speaker, I had difficulty understanding the show. It was ok, but began to blend after a while. We would... More
