    I visit the Park for the first time last week and my expectations were completely fulfilled, the amiability of the personnel was what really made the difference. I was impressed by the flavor of the food and I have to say this place is the best in all Riviera Maya (and I've been visiting this region for a while now).

    I've had the opportunity to visit the city of entertainment (Las Vegas) several times in the past and I have to say that the show at Xcaret is a First World Level.

    The staff was great. The ATV ride could have been longer and more trails. We did the same trail twice by going and doing a u-turn and doing it again.

    Highly recommend this tour company and this tour. Our boat captain Ismael and our guide Manuel were wonderful. They are very friendly and experienced, and gave us the best opportunity to get appropriately up close to the whale sharks. Manuel took an incredible video of our swim. The stop to swim at Isla Mujeres was the perfect end to the tour!

    The only thing we would suggest is to serve something other than a dry sandwich for lunch. We had ceviche as well which was lovely, but would rather something local…not a sandwich!

    Amazing experience! Great tour, fantastic guides, very fun and very respectful towards the whale sharks. Really yummy snacks too!
    I learned a lot and made memories that will last for a lifetime. You can tell Ecocolors really cares about nature and does tours in a very responisble and entertaining way.

    We had such a great adventure. Pickup at our hotel was seamless and comfortable. On the way shortly before we got to the eco park the van made a stop where they asked us if we wanted to add horse riding. We said no and quickly moved along. Upon arriving at the eco park you go through a check-in process where you can upgrade for a better meal and more secluded cenote. We declined both. Then they ask if you want to purchase bandana/gator and goggles. Again we declined. We finally made it to our guide Andrew. It rained really hard the night before so there was lots of puddles and mud. We were excited about that. It wasn’t necessarily great for the ATVs. Depending on the water level and how quickly you went through the engine would cut out. The guides were amazing though. They would come and help quickly. We had an incredible time navigating through it all. Upon arriving back we took a very short open air bus type ride to the cenote. The cenote was beautiful. You could almost zip line into it, jump off into it or take the stairs and go in. The guides again were wonderful. Andrew was very attentive and encouraging. The photographer (I can’t remember her name but she had some purple in her hair) was also incredible. She would cheer us on, helped us overcome fears and took the most amazing pictures. The cenote area had a restroom which was nice to have. After the short open bus trip back we went on the zip line course. It was so much fun!! Just enough danger mixed with really focused safety. We also did a tequila tasting. It was a lot of fun to learn about the process and test different types. Finally we ended at the restaurant and had some awesome tacos, margaritas and some entertainment. Andrew was kind and thoughtful throughout. At first I didn’t like that we couldn’t take our cameras with us on the ATV or zipline, but I have to tell you what a delight it was to get to be fully immersed in the experience and have someone else focused on that. The photographer took the most amazing photos and they were worth every single penny paid. We got to enjoy the experience and each other and still have documented, quality pictures after. I truly high recommend! The overall price of the tour was super reasonable.

    All activities were fun. Lunch break food was good & hit the spot. The staff was nice & friendly. Pics too expensive to buy and only liked a few I would have liked to purchase individually vs $80 for ALL taken. Believe they can still make a profit selling individually vs trying to make you buy ALL for a high price. They don't let you take your own pics of ATV or ziplineing. They should let you or change policy to sell single pics.....I'm sure they would sell WAY more. The drive from hotel to jungle site is LONG & slow on rough winding road so if motion sensitive, dramamine recommended.
    Overall I DO recommend doing this tour! Enjoyed staff & activities! 👍

    The experience was amazing. The only reason I’m rating this a 4/5 is because when we arrived, my tickets could not be retrieved. No matter what I did the ticket thing kept on saying “error occurred” and this gave me a bit of a problem when checking in. Regardless, the parasailing and jet ski experience was awesome!! Be warned that the picture taking service is an additional $60.

    Overall, it was super fun!
    I felt they could have updated their systems because they still use pen and paper which slows the lines down drastically. Sometimes I felt rushed during activities and when it came time to eat. We were still eating when the hurried us to get in line for the bus.

    This was an action packed day of FUN!! We had the best tour guide, Papa Monkey (aka Angel) led us on some great adventures. Such a beautiful place on earth and we enjoyed every minute! Papa Monkey did a great job entertaining us with jungle stories and funny jokes. If you're looking for adventure, this is the trip for you...kayaking, zip lining, repelling, and jumping off high platforms. Beautiful scenery and great lunch too!

    This place is great. We’ve been going here every 2-4 years since our honeymoon in 2005 and have brought our daughters (now 14, 11 & 8). This year, I saw the most fish, thanks to the super cool full-face scuba masks they make now - which xel-ha has upgraded to and include in your admission.

    Heads up though - don’t make our good-natured mistake and leave them anywhere. We’ve done this before with the regular masks, hanging them with our vests after snorkeling while playing, etc. and had two swiped at the children’s area.

    When we came clean and reported it to the locker room, they said we’d still need to pay $50 USD. I get it, but was disappointed. Sad that a place that is pretty expensive to attend would still have guests or staff who would steal other people’s masks, and sad that their rule could start a chain reaction of masks being stolen because no one wants to have to pay $25 if their mask gets swiped. After learning our lesson, we buckled them to our vests and wore them around the park or assigned someone to sit with them at an activity.

    Hope our lesson can help someone else so wanted to write this review. Everything overall was pretty great - beautiful place and fun memories! The lazy river, bikes and Mayan cave were our favorite parts!

    This was our favorite adventure this trip. The guide, Pepe, was fun, informative, and cared for the safety of the group. The cave was beautiful and resides 7km into the a jungle that houses 16 wild jaguars! There is a lot of wildlife in the area. The site was studied by National Geographic. The tour was beautiful, informative, fun, and accessible even for those like me who are not very fit.
