I have put a similar post up ages ago relating to this topic but we leave in a couple of weeks now and we still can't make a decision. Hoping someone out there can help me!
We are heading over to PDC for 1 week with our 3 kids ages 3, 7 and 9 and obviously want to do an adventure / eco park. The problem is - which one! Having spent the whole afternoon on the net reading up on them all and I am no closer to making a decision.
XCARET looks absolutely beautiful in the photos and seems like it has plenty of activities like the river and the jungle cruise etc... However it doesn't seem to be as big on adventure activities. So I looked at XPLOR as we really, really want to zipline but the height restrictions mean my husband and I would have to tag team as 2 of the kids won't be tall enough. Hidden Worlds and Selvatica look like they will accomodate my youngest by allowing him to zip attached to a guide or parent but don't seem to have the beautiful lagoons etc.. that some of the others seem to have.
So, I guess we have to look at 2 different parks on different days which is something I wanted to avoid as we only have 1 week and I don't want to spend the whole time day tripping. We also really want to go to Tulum and get some snorkelling in somewhere.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I don't even know where they all are in relation to each other except that Selvatica is an hour north towards Cancun.
So should we do Xcaret one day and then try to combine Tulum with ziplining on another day somewhere else? Any advice where?
Is it better to book a private driver or tour through Edventures for something like this? I don't really like the big tour bus thing and I don't want to be worried that my kids are bugging people or slowing things up on a big tour as that's not fair on anyone!
Thanks for your help
