We went here on a day trip. Did not book any extras so only did the events included in the package, transfer, entry and one meal. It became a very enjoyable and full day. Did one of the river rides as soon as we arrived, which meant it was quiet and very relaxing floating down the river. Noticed it was... More

I am really well impressed with the Xcaret Park. In a overview I could say the place is beautiful, well maintained, tidy and the staff are polite and friendly. A single day isn't enough to know all the attractions, so your endurance is what will tell how much you will be able to enjoy. Between all the things that I... More

Bring plenty of extra cash because you need to submit deposits for everything.Bring your own towels and water proof camera. We did the swim with the... More

The lazy river is a cool crystal clear river that you float along the mangroves on, it was amazing. The snorkelling was great I swam with the stingrays in the main snorkelling area, I didn't have to pay extra to do this. Bring your underwater camera so you can get great shots. I found the maps a little confusing and... More

We went in May 2011 and are planning on going again this year. We just can't wait! While there we watched little chic eggs hatching. The kids were rooting them on. And floating down the river that flows through the park, through buildings and past native villages...breath taking! Highly recommend.

River float was a lot of fun. I highly recommend using snorkel there is fish and areas where the cave is deep there is a lot to see. The shows are great. The butterfly Garden was awesome really enjoyed it.
