We originally visited Xcaret in February 2016 on a cruise ship excursion because it was one of the few that was toddler friendly - we had no interest in more ruins tours with hour long bus drives. In 2016 it rained most of the day but we made the best out of it by spending a good amount of time... More

We had an awesome time in this unique adventure park. Lazy river concept is one of the best and rare things I have seen so far. This park is for all age group

My husband and I spent the day here in December. I've never had more fun in my life! I think it'd be worth staying at the resort next time, there's so much to do and see that you can't do in just a day. We were there from the time they opened their gates to the time they closed them... More

We had a wonderful day exploring the Eco Theme Park. We went in the early a.m. to avoid the afternoon heat, and visited about 2/3 of the park. We saw the birds, the butterflies, the stained glass building, ruins, the alligators, turtles, etc. It is a short walk or gondola ride from the Occidental Xcaret resort.

There is so much to see at Xcaret. It is a beautiful park but found some planning is required to get the most out of your day. Activities alternate between water/beach to walking/observing. Started with the underground river and wish we had saved it for the afternoon. It was quite busy in the morning and appeared much less packed in... More

Xcaret was great. Loved the lazy rivers, the underwater adventure, the food, all the camera's, drinks, and staff, and the shows.

We enjoyed doing the river the best but the whole complex was fantastic. From butterflies, monkeys and cheetah's, we got to see so much wildlife!! The sea turtles were pretty amazing too. This is a fantastic day for the kids!!!

Enjoyed our day at Xcaret. We aid extra to swim with sharks and also do the Snuba, both were really good experiences and the staff were really lovely. The beach area was beautiful and the other attractions here are good. To be honest I did prefer Xplor as I felt there was more excitement. Xcaret is more of a laid... More

If you book the full day tour be prepared to take lots of breaks and keep hydrated and wear sunscreen. Expect to do a lot of walking. Even in February it was humid and hot. My wife and I are both seniors had visited approximately 10 years ago and there were some changes. We both were still able to maneuver... More

This is a must see and experience park. The entertainment, people, food was all great. The show at the end of the day was amazing, educational and colorful. Swimming along and in the Cenote was a wonderful experience. It was a one of the best parts of the day.
