I loved this place! There is something for every one, from snorkeling to museum, to zoo and the late show is so amazing!

This place was WORLD CLASS and AMAZING, never seen anything like it. It cannot be compared with any other park I have visited. I was so impressed with the beauty and excellent service by the staff. The last show of the night is INCREDIBLE!! The food was soooo delicious.

The park had numerous activities, a few of them required an extra fee except for floating down the river and snorkeling in a small area of the park. I recommend the sea trek - it was a phenomenal walk underwater. It's great for non-swimmers and also adventurous people who love the sea life and coral but do not dive. The... More

Xcaret is another great place to go like Xel-ha and Xplor. There is food and fun. Then in the evening there is a nice show. This place has many underground Caves where you can snorkel and swim. The end of the swim there is a major waterfall. It's great for teenagers and adults. The little ones would do fine just... More

This was a wonderful experience. it was our first visit and boy was it a lot of walking. So bring some walking shoes. It was so much to see and do. We took so many pictures and the caves was awesome. My husband did the river and he loved it. I can't swim so it wasn't for me, The flying... More

This is one of our favorite nature parks in the world. The flora and fauna at Xcaret captivated our senses the second we walked through their gates. We love the indigenous plant life that dotted the expansive jungle terrain of this nature park. The natural pools and beach alcoves were tranquil and relaxing. We enjoyed the fresh and delicious buffet... More

My partner and I visited Xcaret and I had high expectations. The plus package costs $129 and includes buffet meal, lockers and snorkel. Firstly, the locker area is chaos and I went to a different locker area to use the bathroom and it was ten times better than the 'plus' ones we had. We went to the river first as... More

Xcaret- where all your dreams come true!!! I visited here in January 2014 and it was truly unforgettable. There is a wide range of activities, well organized and you will be supplied with a map so you can plan which ones to do. A must see is the horse show which is located right outside the International Restaurant which serves... More

Prior to going to Cancun I spoke with several friend/family members that had been there already. The ones that had gone to Xcaret all highly recommended going to this park. Personally, I was expecting more. (I live in Southern California, we're lucky to have Disneyland, Sea World and other large theme parks.) The attractions are far away from each other... More

The park went from great to horrible. Many of the phone numbers listed on their site do not work and the employees are very confused about the payment processing process. They are completely incompetent and can not even get a simple credit card processing to work. It took me more than 1 hour to get a visa transaction processed. The... More
