Xel-Ha vs Xcaret

Will be traveling in Cancun the week of 1/24 to 1/31 and thinking about visiting either of these parks. Enjoy water activities such as snorkeling and scuba diving.

Looking for pros and cons of both. Could anyone help?

Go to Xel-Ha!

Xcaret has way too many things going on and the snorkeling I thought was a bit pitiful. Xcaret has all sorts of other things plus a little area to snorkel. It crowds very quickly and then you don't see anything at all. All the fish take off because there are too many humans.

Xel-Ha can be crowded and you won't feel it like Xcaret. There were many areas to scout for snorkeling and I think they offer scuba, I don't scuba so I wasn't looking for it. I saw sting rays, sea turtles and scads of fish. It's very peaceful compared to Xcaret.
