Reviewed August 30, 2014

Great park! Very pretty and lots of things to visit and to do! Buy your tickets at the desk there or through the internet on the Xcaret site (cheaper when you book early). Tour operators ask crzay prices, so avoid them! Tip: if you pay with Mastercard, you get a second day for free!

I was here when I was 15 years old and it was a very nice experience all the family members. There are many attractions and activities, you can even swim inside a CENOTE.

“Best part of our trip to Mexico!!”
Reviewed August 30, 2014

I was given a recommendation to go to Xcaret by a couple of friends who had previously went and I am glad I listened! The cost for this park seems pricey at first but it was honestly worth the money!! It is filled with so many activities that will definitely keep you stimulated throughout the whole day. Dolphin swim, snorkelling, boat ride, underground rivers, animal exhibits, aquarium.....all in a jungle like setting...it was amazing! The food served at the lunch buffet was really good also!! A great selection at the buffet tables...and I must say the best ice cream me and my husband have ever had!! The night show is optional but totally worth the wait....an amazing performance by all of the entertainers. The costumes, dancing, and singing are spectacular! It was a great way to end a wonderful day!! I recommend this excursion to anyone who can afford it!

“Beautiful Park!”
Reviewed August 30, 2014

Had a wonderful day at the park. It is large and beautiful. So much to do and so little time. Would highly recommend! I just wish that the area that houses the Delphinus dolphins would be bigger for the dolphins. It doesn't seem like they have a lot of area to just be dolphins and that makes be sad for the dolphins. Also, if you swim with the dolphins there, make sure you get the pricing for photos and videos before you go & print it out. I did and glad that I did, since they tried to charge me $50 more than the quote I received prior to going. Keep helping ALL the wildlife, it is appreciated!

“So much fun!”
Reviewed August 30, 2014

The night show at Xcaret was awesome! I would recommend waiting to float the lazy rivers for a few hours. Once the crowd is gone you can float peacefully and at your own pace. Unfortunately there weren't any tropical fish left due to overcrowding. The beach, restaurants and animals we're great!
