We were so happy that we included this in our trip. This place is a nature's Cedar Point/Disney World. You can cliff dive, snorkel, kayak, go tubing, explore, and there were bars everywhere. We had an absolute blast. If you like outdoor activities and adventure then you're going to love this place.

We all loved the swim in the underground river, and the park is beautiful especially the turquoise color river there, we saw dolphins, turtles in the park, the night show is good too, but a little bit too long for kids. We bought a photo package $110 for 8 ppl, so we can just scan our waistband on the photo... More

We had a great time floating down the lazy river and snorkeling. It was a long day and we didn't stay to see the evening show. If you plan to go all day, make sure you get a good nights rest!

Floating through the underground cave rivers with lifejacket on was by far the best part. The $30 per head buffet was no option at all with the hotel buffet restaurant just next door as part of your all inclusive. The evening show was OK with all the different areas of Mexico represented and a good fun 'fire hockey' match. It... More

We visited this park during our holiday in August and was amazed at how big the place is. Plenty of activities and things to do and plenty of things to see as well. We did additional activities including ocean walk and Adrenalin. We have to say, Adrenalin is just fantastic, a must do if you like fun, getting wet and... More

Fantastic. Went on a Sunday so less crowded as this is changeover day for a lot of people either departing or arriving for their vacation. Lazy river was amazing, suggest you go early. Chill out hammock area was great. Snorkelling fab. Pick of the day of course was the show in the auditorium in the evening. Too much to do... More
