    What to Expect
    After pickup at your Cancun hotel or central meeting point, travel in air-conditioned comfort to Xcaret Park outside of Cancun. This Xcaret excursion offers activities for every interest, from history to ecology to adventure.

    Explore the underground caverns beneath the jungle, once used by the Mayans for cleansing rituals before sailing to Cozumel Island, a sacred site. Keep an eye out for brightly-colored macaws, deer, and monkeys as you wander through the network of subterranean tunnels.

    Discover the orchid garden, a favorite of nature-lovers and amateur botanists. Check out the butterfly pavilion and the aviary, as well as the aquarium featuring specimens of gorgeous coral reefs. Head to the beach to relax, swim in the warm, calm waters, or snorkel with sea turtles. Most of these activities are included in your admission to Xcaret. Prices for additional activities may vary.

    If you want to extend your outing at Xcaret in Cancun, stay for the Excaret Mexico Espectacular, a show full of folkloric entertainment, dancing, and music. Follow the narrative of Mexican history from the pre-Columbian era until modern day through the performers.

    Xcaret Plus Upgrade:

    Enjoy a buffet lunch, including orange juice and lemonade. Use snorkeling gear to further explore Xcaret's waters off of Cancun, Mexico and receive access to the Plus Area, which includes a more exclusive and private changing room and shower area.

    At the end of the day, enjoy drop-off at your Cancun hotel.

    I was really dumbfounded how commercial this tour is from XCaret. The whole day we were sold many different things under the guise of being introduced to the Mayans and the region. They spent a lot of time on places where cheap touristy stuff is sold, but we were asked to hurry

    I was here about 25 years ago when this destination highlight was the underground river that you could swim/float. Today, I have to say, "Wow. Just WOW!" That river is about 3 times longer (yes, we swam it!) and the park has become a rival to the San Diego Zoo (check out

    As others have written, this is definitely not an inexpensive day by any means. However, it is a unique experience and one that my family really enjoyed. We started our day with the lazy river which was incredible. While we were told by others that we should start our day
