Great park!

We were at first unsure about visiting this place since we had our one year old baby with us, but it worked out nicely. There are lots of activities to do and animals to see.

We had a Great time in Xcaret. Our boys got to swim with Dolphins. Awesome Food and service. Safe environment. Will visit again when we go back. So much to do in one day. Not enough time. It's a 2 day park to visit.

After a rain all day visit to this park 4 yrs ago, we returned and it was a beautiful day for a out door adventure! They continue to add things so I can see how you could easily do a two day visit. We do not swim so we only toured the beautiful grounds. We liked the turtle, butterfly and... More

We had read reviews before we came and decided it was something we really wanted to do while in Mexico, and it really was worth it. XCaret isn't a theme park in the sense that it's full of rollercoasters. It's more like a massive zoo. Only instead of walking around, there are three rivers that you can swim around, some... More

It's a truly amazing place. There's so much to see and do. Do you own research before you go and pick the things you want to get in before then if show at 19:00. There were 5 adults and 5 kids ages 3, 10, 12, 13, and 15 in our group. Everyone loved the cave swim and that is the... More

We did buy the picture thing that was really neat they have all these different places that take your pictures around the park, however when we got home our pictures were already off of... More

Xcaret is a lovely place. The park is beautifully designed and shows the best of Mexican culture. That said, if you are visiting it in conjunction with a cruise stop in Cozumel, you will come away feeling disappointed. There is just not enough time to see the place before your guide is herding you back to the bus. We spent... More

I have been lucky to have been here 3 times over 10 years. Whilst its become much more commercial the beauty is still amazing. The caves are a must, there are 2 choices, one is for absolute beginners and very safe.(life jacket on at all times). The beach although I believe is man made has the most amazing array of... More
