It depends on what you want. First, I may be wrong, but I think Xpu-ha is a resort, not a park. I have not been to Xcaret but have heard from friends that it has many things to see and would be good for younger children. We have teenagers who love Xel- ha - it is a very active park (plan on being in the water most of the day) with tons of huge iquanas running loose. We look forward to doing Xel-ha again this year, but I would not recommend it for young children or older adults who are not active.

Xcaret, IMHO, is easily the better of the two parks Xcaret and Xel Ha though both are beautiful, full of activity and worth a visit. Visit the website of either, view the activities, events and exhibits and decide what your preference is. Typically Xel Ha is more water sports orientated than Xcaret though Xcaret offers similar activities among its other offerings.

Xpu-Ha was a partially developed Eco-Park, short lived, then destroyed for another Hotel Resort project.

Is Tulum your destination? Then perhaps Xel-ha might suit. It's close and will take a whole day if you want. It's is extremely water oriented. Nice if you like swimming, diving, floating and snorkeling. Great park area and restaurants.

If your more oriented to a zoo/eco park with water sports actvities available then you might consider Xcaret.
