This is my fourth time at Xcaret, I love the park and everything on it but this time the Xcaret Plus experience was a bit disappointing. In my previous visits I really enjoyed the snorkeling in the underground rivers, in our last visit in September 2014 the snorkel is not provided anymore for the rivers, at least in the Plus... More

Its been a while now since we went but I'd love to go again. If like any sort of nature this place is incredible. We swam in under ground carverns and tunnels. We saw dolphins swimming in their habitat. We saw the research and breeding or turtles and other species. We were able to swim with sharks (cost extra) which... More

We were expecting a more natural Park experience. Instead there were animals in rather small enclosures, 'under water rivers' which were suspiciously purpose built, and lots of activities to do at extra cost. The staff were very friendly and our lunch was nice. We enjoyed seeing the turtles and had a snorkel. I just think we had a different idea... More

If you can't find something you like here then there's something wrong! You name it they have it! Plan on quite a bit of walking ...better yet try to plan your day either before you get there or once you get there come up with a plan of attack...since this place is big with much to see. This sway you... More

Huge ecological park. Has just about everything you can imagine. One day was not enough to explore the entire park. Experience beautiful botanical gardens, walking trail through the forest, live animals, river boat ride through jungle, beach, swim/snorkel area, restaurants, shops, churches, mayan ruins, cultural "areas" with authentic crafts for sale, aquarium, and a whole lot more. Will definitely go... More
