We took a tour to Tulum followed by X-Caret in the same day. Do to driving and lunch outside of X-Caret we only gave ourselves about 5 hours to play. Not long enough but we were not disappointed at all.
There are 2 main draws here for us. The underground river and the big show at the end of the day. The river was a lot of fun. Just laying back wearing floating devices and slowly making our way down the river. Took about an hour to go the entire distance. At first we thought this was a natural set of river caves, but unfortunately they were all man made. Seeing is not a problem and throughout the river run there are many holes cut into the top of the tunnels to help cascade light from above. All in all a fun way to spend an hour away from the hot sun.
The animal exhibits were nice. The butterfly one being the best. It is impressively big inside and you walk around the perimeter of the enclosure from the floor level as well as above. Everything is picturesque and there is even a waterfall which is an ideal spot for taking pictures.
The big show at the end was exhilarating. 2 hours with a 10 minute intermission goes by quickly and does a great job of showing Myan life before the Spanish came... then it goes into the rich culture of Mexico with traditional songs and dances. Highly recommended and should not be missed.
One great thing about this place is each guest gets their own wrist band with a bar code. Throughout the park there are picture spots where you use your barcode to take a picture. At the end of the night, you can view all of those photos easy by scanning the barcode and buying pictures is pretty easy. They even offer the ability to take home every picture on a flash drive for about $80 US. Just be sure to keep using the same barcode throughout your stay to take advantage of that deal.
