Daughter, husband and 2 boys spent a day at the park and brought back many exciting stories of the park and the different themes they offer. A day well spent.

We booked the dolphin swim at the connecting resort, Occidental Grand Xcaret. I asked if we could bring our water cameras in with us to take our pictures and was told absolutely!! 11 of us booked for $120 a person which is $1,320 total. When we got there they would not let us bring our cameras in the water. I... More

This park is a great place to take the family or just go as a couple. There is plenty to do here in. Plenty of shows as well. Swimming through the caves takes about 45 minutes. Be advised, the water is cold, but you soon adapt to it. Snorkeling is fun but there is not allot to see. The water... More

This is one of the must amazing places I have ever been. Words can not do this place enough justice. If you are visiting the area be sure to make time to spend at least one day at Xcaret. We will definitely be going back!

We spent a day here with our family and friends. The place is really big with lots of activities and places to see. It can be a bit confusing for first time visitors. When you enter the park, you can either swim the xenotes or enter into the park by foot. I would recommend doing the xenotes first, you end... More

We booked and paid for this excursion whilst still in the UK, think it was about £95 each. Included in this price was the transport to and from the park, entrance to the park, 1 meal and 1 drink each, a locker, snorkel, googles, flippers and life jacket, also to see the show in the evening. We wanted to do... More

We had a great day out at the park, however when we arrived found it very confusing where to go for what. We booked our tickets direct with the park prior to travel and got a good deal, however print all the paperwork, twice as you need to hand everything in when exchanging for your wrist bands. We paid to... More

Went here this month August 2016 with my hubby, my 78 year old mom and 2 children (7 and 10). We all had great time, the kids had fun in the underwater river although didn't complete the whole passage as my mom was too scared to even start it, the children wants to do it again but since we booked...
