I've visited this park twice now and I'm still in ewe of its beauty the second time I saw it. There is lots too see and do swimming with dolphins or sharks or just lazing in the underwater rivers.

A gorgeous Park that offers a wide range of activities such as wildlife watching, swimming with dolphins and sharks, under water trek adventure, different shows, multiple delicious restaurants, the beach and other swimming areas, underground rivers, and a spectacular folklore show at the end of every night. Definitely a place that I recommend and will go back to as soon... More

Xcaret theme park is optimal with a wide variety of options for the entire family. The jaguar-puma space enables visitors to view these magnificent cats from respectably close distance. The butterfly, church and the pet cemetary are all wonderfully planned places. The highlight of Xcaret is the Mexico show, which no one should leave Mexico without seeing. The lighting, music,...

We loved Xcaret. Its huge and there are lots to see and do. It can get really hot and humid so I suggest, placing the underground river swim at the middle of the day so you can cool down a bit. Do some more exploring and then do some snorkelling or relax at the beach area later on in the... More

It was quite a amazing experience to explore Mexican culture in a theme park. Good combination of cultural shows and water activities. Due to the complicated routing and show schedule conflict, it is impossible to experience everything in one day.

Show at night very good but a lot of this attraction is all based extras all a bit on the pricey side. The river swims are good but bear in mind it's a good 45 min swim. Not suitable for poor swimmers which is not exactly made clear. Would not attract me back again nor the other 7 I was... More

I was truly surprised at everything this place had to offer. We decided to stay until the very end which was probably a bit too long. But it was worth it. You can definitely find something to do all day long... It was extremely hot but you can cool off at the beach or in the river. The river was... More

The place is a mega theme park, eventhough I knew this going in, it really surprised me how much the animals where lonely , and didn't seem to me that had much space. I was really expecting more open spaces where the animals had space to be kinda like in nature but that was not my impression. The highlight was... More
