“Good Time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Go have a great day. My wife who is sometimes less adventurous, traveled the multitude of zip lines with as much enjoyment as my kids. The all terrain vechicles are not all that fast but offer a nice time. The rafting, swimming caves and food were all pleasantly enjoyable. It's a good way to do something with the family and have a few laughs. The food is pretty decent too. I would recommend a visit if you are in the area.

“Yippeeee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

What a fun day!! Zip Lining, swimming in Cenotes, driving the jungle cars and atv's!

The zip lining here at xplor was a must, I believe they have the tallest lines in the area too so you get a really good aerial view of the yucatan. The jungle jeeps were really fun to drive through the caves and over the sketchy bridges! The food was awesome as well, a huge buffet with a good selection of fruits and veggies.

“Good Fun.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

We have been to the area numerous times and decided to check out the Xplor Adventure Park. This park is together with the same group as Xel-Ha and Xcaret, so as the other parks, they are well done. I suspect they would have some pull with the Dept. of Tourism and have some clout in order to turn this impressive cave system into an amusement park. The staff indeed were professional and well trained and we felt safe at all times. My kids ae now 14 and 15 and had a blast even though the cars were a bit slow for them but never the less, they had a fun day.
TIP... It says that closed toe shoes are required, but the best shoes are water shoes. Purchase from Wal-mart for about 10.00 not in the park for 32.00. We were at the park at about 8:45 and left by 4:30.
Buy your tickets in advance to save a bit of money but if you do not book a specific day you must arrive before 9:30 am in order to be assured you get into the park. After 9:30 , it is by availability only..... the park is busy so you want to be there early anyway to get everything in at a relaxed pace.
Another TIP.... eat a bit earlier... your food is included and it seems that everyone eats between 12:15 and 1:15. We went at about 11:50 and there was no line up.
I would reccomend this for families with teens or even as young as 5 or 6 if the kids like adventure. If you have mobility issues , this is probably not the park for you.

“great day excursion.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

went in July of 2012 with 2 other couples. the price is pretty reasonable, they pick you up from your resort and take you back, it's included in the price which is nice. We really booked Xplor for the zip lines, but came away impressed with the other options. Cave swims, snack bar, a huge buffet, all terrain vehicles you drive through caves. I've zip lined in the mountains of West Virginia before, and i'd say these are quite a bit better. overall i'd recommend this place. we're going back to the Riviera Maya next month, but I doubt we're going to make a return trip. so many other things to see in the area.

“Cool place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

All the tour busses show up at the same time so plan to spend a lot of your day standing in lines waiting. Zip-lining was cool. Lots of towers to climb though. Underground river swim was a life experience in the caves. The raft trip in the caves was not worth the wait and the cluster of people jammed together. This forced us to not have time to try the amphibious vehicles that we went for originally. Not enough time to do everything in a day. Large crowds and not organized very well. The photo booths at the end were fast and efficient though.

Dear visitor,

We understand your annoyance over the large number of people in the park, considering that Xplor is as visited as many other touristic places, mainly on holiday season.

We offer you an apology for haven´t advice you about the most convenient time to do the rafts, which is before 1:00 pm or after 4:00 pm, when it is less crowded.

We´ll be very glad to have you back soon, so you could try the amphibious vehicles.
