How is this. I go to a them park in MX and the guy at the gate says "would you like the meal package". So I say "what is included in the meal pass?" He says "there is five restaurants in the park and you can eat at any of them! It is all you can eat and as many... More

Maybe our family's standards are too high after experiencing Discovery Cove in Orlando, but we were sadly disappointed with Xcaret. The grounds are spread out, so be prepared to walk a lot. The layout is confusing and the map is just as bad...at times I felt like were going in circles through the jungle. We did the Plus option that... More

This was a great experience for us, although wished we had planned the day better with the heat. The aquarium is great but plan it during the hot part of the day as it is cooler. The aviary is spectacular but go in the morning before it is hot. The river swim is pretty amazing, but the long tunnels (although... More

Our second time here, this time brought the family and it was a huge hit.....from young to old there was something to do. The park is huge and impeccably clean.....we did find the signage to be a problem...but that is the least of it! The best thing we did was purchase the photo package (there were 10 of us) and...

We arrived about 10:30 am and immediately went to the underground Rivers area where you can "swim" the rivers. This was an awesome experience. We arranged the day with our resort so travel to and from along with a meal was provided. The buffet we ate at was "ok", very expensive if not included in your ticket. There is so... More

Xcaret Park Mexico, an eco-archaeological park in Cancun and Riviera Maya. We didn't do any of the day activities and just went for the evening show and eight course dinner. Some of the courses were very good, and some were 'interesting'. Our meal included unlimited drinks as well. The show was very well done but it definitely helps if you... More

Spent 1/2 day there and saw probably 1/3 of the park. Our fravorites were the river and snorkeling in the ocean inlet. Would go again for sure!
