One of the best experiences we've shared as a family. We opted to take a taxi from out resort to the park so we could be flexible. The park is so impressive and so well-organized. Make sure to pack a change of clothes and maybe even a towel and water shoes. There are lockers for rent and basic showers. Cameras... More

Superb, very nice park. Well organized except the lines to get a locker. There's 3 rivers to go down to and they all end up near the ocean at the other end of the park. We did not know this first day, so check it out. Also a good deal if you buy 7 days ahead and then if you... More

Warning⚠️ Worst experience and treatment I ever had despite the high price I had to pay! The tour guide kept my drivers license when we switched bus and they offer no solution other than me driving back on my dime for an hour each way despite the fact they had several busses coming back to a few min from my...

This park is amazing. You will need two to three days to explore the entire park. There are lots of activities for all age and ability groups. My favorite activity is swimming underneath the park through the underground rivers. These underground rivers have been constructed by tunneling between the ancient cenotes of the Yucatan Peninsula. As far as other swimming... More

Amazing place to Visit... We had an amazing time here. So much to experience, well worth the visit. You can experience the Mayan culture, the ocean activities, and animal encounters like a zoo. I cant put into words.. I loved this place the most exciting thing was the river float. The water was frigid and so clear, this was awesome...... More

Xcaret is a beautiful park to visit with tones of activities like snorkelling lazy rivers and more. You get pick from your hotel and a massive buffet lunch. Based on my experience I highly recommend this park or others in the chain like Xplor. You will not be disappointed.

We had this day planned to be the first day of our trip after we had all flown in. For us, we like to arrive 30 minutes before the park open to get everything in order and be some of the first ones so that the water is still clear in the rivers. From our first river we swam in(Yellow)... More
