Great for the whole family. This place is full of nature and culture. If you have one day only, get there as soon as they open and leave when they close. If you have 2 days... Lucky you!! Be prepared because you walk a lot and also have to swim. But it is very worth it. Dont miss the shows.... More

There is more to do here than can be done in a day. The best is the float along a river that flows through caves. Information is widely available but here's what they don't tell you which you need to know to enjoy the experience better: Get the plus package for convenience. Wear your swim gear under your dry clothes... More

This place is a paradise like you can never imagine.The best part for us were the underground rivers. We dumped all our stuff in a locked and numbered bag that was delivered to us at the end of the river swim. Everybody has to wear a good quality bright pink life jacket and you get flippers and away you go.... More

We bought the 3 day pass through Occidental Grand Xcaret and it was a great choice. The park is huge (lots of walking) so one day is not enough to do everything you want to do there. They have a lot of fun activities like underground river swimming, snorkelling (I recommend buying your own snorkelling kit before you go, you'll... More

Great park! Very pretty and lots of things to visit and to do! Buy your tickets at the desk there or through the internet on the Xcaret site (cheaper when you book early). Tour operators ask crzay prices, so avoid them! Tip: if you pay with Mastercard, you get a second day for free!

I was here when I was 15 years old and it was a very nice experience all the family members. There are many attractions and activities, you can even swim inside a CENOTE.

I was given a recommendation to go to Xcaret by a couple of friends who had previously went and I am glad I listened! The cost for this park seems pricey at first but it was honestly worth the money!! It is filled with so many activities that will definitely keep you stimulated throughout the whole day. Dolphin swim, snorkelling,... More
