“Xel-Ha is better and all inclusive! Don't waste your time here!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

We only received 1 lunch and 1 alcoholic drink at Xcaret. All the fun activities were an extra charge, as well as food and drinks. At Xel-Ha we had unlimited use of buffet and bars and snorkeling was free.

Departamento C, Customer Service Team at Xcaret Eco Theme Park, responded to this review, August 27, 2014
Dear visitor,

Thank you for sharing your comments.

We would like to share with you that some activities are offered as optional because of the following:

• In order to give a personalized experience, optional activities are available for a limited group of people, in comparison to the capacity of the park.
• The cost of maintenance of these activities is high; they are not included in the ticket for keeping the price as low as possible.

Hope you can visit us again.

“Must visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

Let me start by saying if you want to visit this park, which is expensive to begin with; buy it online and several days before and save yourself some money and also by the plus package. The plus package is well worth the extra $20 dollars or so, believe me if you don't the price for the gear, lockers and buffet inside the park are all extra and the plus package included it. The park has underground river, a beach setting, scuba diving areas it's a nice ecological park the truth you can spend all day at the park but after a while there is really so much you see. The food at the buffet was good in general, stay away from the Ceviche we found that out the hard way other than that the park is a great way pass the day. If you happen to have a rental car spend part of your day and then drive to Playa del Carmen for a couple of hours. It's really a nice way to spend the day and see a different part of Mexico. Once is enough for this kind of place that's my opinion.
