Great views to be seen from tower. I thought the timings of the experience was ok had plenty of time to take plenty of pictures and just take it all in. Had a free entry ticket from ferry ride to Isle Mujeres as to pay up front would be quite expensive. So if you plan to take ferry / boat buy the boat ticket first then you get free entry and it makes it very worthwhile

The scenic tower has a very nice 360-degree view. The price is expensive and this lasts approximately 10 minutes, so u should make the most of it bc the view up there is incredible, u can appreciate the sea on one side and a lake on the other. I really enjoyed it :)

p.s: As you go up there is an informative recording about the Tower and Cancún, it’s only in Spanish, they should put it in English,bc the foreign people who were next to me didn't understand anything

We visited here after finding out that it is free admission with your ticket to Xcaret. Would not have paid the admission fee if it were not included. Views are nice and it turns at a reasonable pace. We went near sunset which made it picturesque. Not sure going at night would be as scenic.

Tip: you need to be wearing your Xcaret wristband for admission so don’t throw it away after visiting Xcaret.

Tip: parking next to the tower has a fee.

We went there as it was free with Xcaret admission. We went in the night and it was nice to see the well lit Cancun but don't think it is a must do and definitely not one if you have to pay 14USD to get up there in the night. May be the views would have been better in the day - esp of the beaches and the lagoons.

So my wife son and I decided to see the sights from this. We have passed it many times and finally decided to go. well I cannot tell you how the experience was. Unfortunately when we went to pay the credit card machine was not functional. My wife asked when it would be and unfortunately they did not know and it's been non functional for quite some time. So my question is how can a tourist attraction not have the capability to accept credit cards? it's very frustrating and unfortunately very common but this seems to happen in Cancun at a lot of events and attractions and businesses. I would suggest calling establishment before you go or having your hotel call to make sure they accept credit cards. This is the reason why my ratings are what they are. Very frustrating as my son really wanted to go and we did not have the available cash on hand.

This tower revolves giving a great view over Cancun however it is expensive.It cost about £12 per person.It is internal so looking through glass but we felt we needed to do it.The trip is short and there is a running commentary explaining the sights.Enjoyed it but costly.

La Torre Escénica allows you to get awesome views of all of Cancun. If you have done one of the trips like Excaret your entry is free. You’re able to see the pirate boat shows as you rise. It gives a history of Cancun in English and Spanish. Biggest plus... it has AC!

It is simple, neat, not so expensive. It is included if you get a Xperience Pass at the XCaret group parks. The view of the lake and the Caribbean Sea is beautiful. It's also a good way to have a sense of dountown Cancun and its Zona Hotelera.

It is a beautiful view of Cancún, but a little pricey. I suggest if you go to Xcaret to keep your bracelet and save the entrance on this attraction. It was almost $60 USD for a family of four and the ride last about 10 minutes. If you do not mind spending the money, go ahead, the view is the best you can have in Cancún.
