    So much to do, feels like you need 2 days to see it all. Park is huge, didn't realise that there were 3 underground rivers until we left. We did one and that was enough though, great experience- just busy.
    Snorkeling was fab. Just a lot of people.
    Food was delicious.
    So much wildlife to see.
    Definitely recommend the evening show with dinner. Really special experience and made lots of memories.
    Recommend reviewing everything the park has before you go so you can plan your day and not miss anything.

    The bus driver of bus 2026 (manuel) was a nice man and drove very neatly and calmly. Rodrigo gave us a fantastic tour of Chichen Itza and is a great storyteller. Daniel was a very good tour guide. We thought Chichen Itza was the most beautiful. We felt that the other parts were very commercial and touristy. There were also many other tourists there while we encountered almost no one at previous beautiful cenotes elsewhere during our trip. We would have liked to spend more time in Chichen Itza to walk around and see more on our own.

    It was a full day which encompassed 3 very different experiences. While I really enjoyed all three of them I really loved the cenote- So unique.

    Xcaret with kids
    We had our 5 yo and 18 mo with us, so we purchased tickets through USA transfers so that we could leave easily when we wanted to and they were great - arrived on time at the hotel and our designated pickup time. We stayed from around 9:00 until 2:00. Once we got to Xcaret, it was a lot of work and literal sweat to get started, but so worth it! Total time between arrival and getting in the river was over an hour, but only because we didn’t know where some things were located and this place is HUGE. Check out the map in advance and make sure you know what activities you want to do. For young kids, bring a stroller or rent one. Rental strollers are by the very front entrance - turn left literally immediately after entering the gates and before you get into the main shop. You need to pay a deposit in CASH ONLY and there isn’t an ATM nearby, so bring plenty of cash with you. Total deposit was $500 Mexican pesos for a double stroller. There’s no need to worry about the stroller while you float along the river - they will take it (and a bag with anything you don’t want to get wet, like sunscreen, snacks, baby diapers, etc.) to the exit for you! If you have a child under 2, you’ll need to sign a waiver since they say the water is chilly and only recommend it for 2 yo and above. However, we went at the end of July and the water was not cold at all - as warm as or possibly even warmer than our community pool at home. Get the Xcaret plus tickets - the lockers, life vests, and buffet, etc we’re all worth it.

    Emilio was an excellent tour guide. He answered our questions and made sure everyone was comfortable and having a good time. My wife forgot something in her locker at Chichen Itza because they would not allow us to use our tripod for some reason, and he went and got it back for us while we were at the lunch buffet. Emilio is the best tour guide I've ever had and I highly recommend him.

    I have one suggestion. The tour states that breakfast is provided. I suggest provided something else other than just cookies and bananas and water. Many of us cannot have things that are high in sugar so my wife and I didn't really have much of a breakfast that morning.

    The VIP dinner made the experience all the more special. The waiters treated us like royalty there, and the creations offered up by the chef were totally unique and on point with the show's theme. They were super accommodating to my friend's allergies, so she didn't miss out on anything! Definitely get there early though!! They have places to take pictures outside and they do all of the food stuff before the show because once it starts, the waiters can't come back out as it might be distracting. If you miss the photo op before the show it's not a huge deal, you can go back afterwards- I actually liked the night pics better anyway. I will definitely be coming back!

    Highly recommend this tour. Max is friendly and very knowledgeable. Loved snorkeling with the turtles, sting rays, and all the colorful fish. The cenote was amazing especially seeing the reflective surfaces. The photographer was also great!!!

    This park is value for money. The zip wires are not for the light hearted but you need to have a go. The atv tracks are brilliant and the food and drinks is all part of the entrance fee. You leave totally exhausted but it’s worth every peso.

    This was a great experience!!
    My only advice is to be sure to bring some bottled water. Although they provided it along the way, I would have proffered my own bottle. Also bring a little cash to buy some little trinkets on the village.

    Myself and my husband visited this tour. The driver who came to collect us from Hard Rock Hotel Cancun was called Jamie. From the moment we stepped into the mini bus he was so friendly and helpful and made us feel great. Jamie was very personable from the off. Very great tour guide. I had an unfortunate turn during the visit to Tulum due to the weather being very hot and thankfully Jamie was still with us and helped my husband get me safely back onto the bus. Jamie we are so lucky that we had you with us. The rest of the tour after this slight hiccup was amazing. Such a great tour guide. We were lucky to have met you. Thank you so much Jamie. Love Pala and Manjit ❤️❤️

    With Alberto as our guide and Jordan as our driver we had the most perfect day ever on our vacation. Also we were very looking and only with 4 people in total, it was just like having a private tour. It was too bad that Sargassum made it impossible to take a dive at Paradise Beach. Not many people know how dangerous it can be. Every site we visited was beautiful and the history was told by Alberto within details. Recommend everybody to book this trip.

    This tour was absolutely amazing! Our tour guides Carlos and Javier were fantastic!!! I couldn't have picked a better tour. Seeing all the ruins and learning more about their history was an experience! It's a full day for sure but the best day you will have here! The cenote was very refreshing. After all the walking at chicken Itza. The Coba ruins was very fun since you can ride bikes or a carriage. I took the carriage route which was so relaxing! Bikes rentals are 3 dollars and carriage was 8. I left a good tip as well and my carriage driver was very thankful! 10 out of 10 I recommend!
    Since my group was 3 of us ladies we became Charlie's angels with our guide Carlos being charlie we had a blast!

    Tips:
    *Eat breakfast before it's not a real breakfast they offer more continental.
    *Alot of walking so comfy shoes. You do have options to change into your swim suit if you don't want to wear it all day.
    *Bring a fan, a wash cloth for sweat, hat and sunglasses.
    * Try to eat lunch quickly so you have more time at the cenote.
