Went with my little kids to enjoy this park. Really beautiful and well conserved. A lot of nature, pretty clean, food at Laguna Restaurant was exquisite. Next year will go to Xcaret again.

Went here for a day with the boyfriend during our stay in Mexico. We had such an amazing holiday and this is probably the only part we didn't enjoy. We are not picky people at all and make our own fun but we just didn't really get into the whole idea of the park. We thought it would be more active. In my opinion there wasn't that much to do. We watched a few short shows and we put our scuba gear on to go snorkelling around a river type thing and found it a bit pointless, nothing really to see and felt like we were just swimming around for ages in snorkel gear. The restaurant was ok but nothing compared to the food we were getting at our resort, the lemonade was amazing though!!

I wouldn't recommend this trip purely because there are so many other better things to do!! Definitely look around at the other trips before booking this one

We thank you taking the time to write your opinion about your visit to our park.

In Xcaret our goal is to offer our visitors a full day of great experiences enjoying the traditions and customs of our beloved México. Therefore, we have activities and attractions included as part of our program such as: the butterfly pavilion, the scenic rotating tower, the Mexican Art Museum, the spider monkey island, the manatee lagoon, the Mayan ruins, the natural reef aquarium, the cultural Mexican performances like the Papantla Flying Men, the Fiesta Charra, Mayan rituals, and our amazing Night presentation “Xcaret México Espectacular” among others. We would have loved these activities were of your delight as other do.

Regarding your comments on snorkeling in the underground river, we would like to share with you that during this activity you can have a unique experience discovering ancient Mayan sinkholes, magical caves, rock formations and marine fossils created by natural filtration of rainwater through soil that are very appealing for nature lovers. The scenery is not usual because in the underground, part of the river route is partially sun lighted.

It is important for us that our visitors who come from different parts of the world, find in our park quality and variety on food and beverages and according to other comments must of them find a good value in our large selection of dishes offered in our restaurants such as: La Cocina (mexican and international buffet), Dos Playas (caribbean buffet), La Caleta (international buffet) to name a few. We regret they did not meet your expectations.

We thank you for your visit and look forward to welcome you back in sunny México to be your host at our brother parks Xel-Há and Xplor.
