This place is truly amazing. A must if you visit Cancun. They give you all the access to the gorgeous, historical views and provide great guides to provide a history lesson. The park is relaxing. It's great for families with young kids.

Lots to thing to do the only bad thing is that the best activities have an extra charge, if you pay for the regular entrances all of the better activites are on the side so be ready to spend some money if you really want to take advantage of all that Xcaret has to offer.

Would not recommend this park. It is totally over crowded and over priced. We went in July 2015, spent most of the day standing in queues. Despite the excessive cost, at least 60% of activities in the park have to be paid for separately. We did the dolphin experience for 45 mins and it was a total waste of time.... More

This is an excellent change of pace if you're staying on the strip. The main strip of Xancun has all the hustle and kinda bustle of a big city resort twon. But if you're looking to get in touch with nature - this is a good tour to start with.

Simply beautiful. Make sure to get there early and save your appetite for the buffets. Don't miss out on the show they have on the end.
