There should be a price for those who want to do a half day or not stay for the night time shows. In order to enjoy it here you will be spending more money on the extra activities. Otherwise the price is not worth it...More

This place has so much to offer. It was simply amazing. Underground caves to swim under. Boat rides. Snorkeling. Lots of places to eat. Lots of extras to choose from. It was simply an adventure or you can simply relax if you choose to.

Hi, Aimee. What would you like to know about this attraction? We are staying in Akumal, which is about 30 minutes away. It looks like it's $44 per person for a bus transport to Xcaret. Yikes! Does anyone know how taxis would compare????

I'm wondering if water shoes are recommended for the water activities or being barefoot fine (meaning are the areas rocky or sandy)? Also can we bring our own snorkel mask/tubes for the rivers or do we have to rent the parks?

I would personally recomend water shoes, there are alot of places where it can get slippery and i think its better to avoid any problems and aboit the snorkel equipment im not 100% sure
