We took a Collectivo from our hotel (Grand palladium) 40MXN (25mins) which drops you off on the main highway, a free shuttle bus then takes you every 20mins to the park (too far to walk) We opted for the basic admission price and glad we did, the extra for the PLUS admission is only worth it if you are a...

This feels really strange as the reviews on this park are so amazing. We visited in March 2017 on a Saturday. I booked online and I cost £190 for 2 adults 1 child. We had read the reviews so got a taxi and didn't upgrade to AI. We took our fins and flippers and were really excited. We bought the... More

We truly enjoyed our visit to this park using the Xcaret Plus ticket (stay all day & enjoy evening show). We snorkeled the river, ate at the Caribbean Buffet, enjoyed the relaxing chairs by the inlet, toured the folklore museum, enjoyed the folklore dance display, caught the Flying Men act & were completely enamored by the final show of the...

This is a must! When in Mexico. Is such a beautiful and delightful experience. Make sure you get there as soon as they open. So much to see and do. From swimming, eating, relaxing and exploring. Take sunscreen and make sure is organic, since there are fish in the water and other reasons. Take a hat and extra cloths. I... More

Third time here and each time it grows. Very nice for one or two days. Plenty to do and see. Big beach area to enjoy the sun and places to snorkel.

My wife and I didn't want to do an entire day and went for the Espectacular night show, so we didn't see many areas of the park, but went up the viewing tower. saw the horse show and climbed up the small Mayan ruins on site. There was lots to do in the park and you could easily spend 2... More

We pre-planned an excursion to Xcaret and was glad we went as there was lots to do and probably ran out of time - almost should do 2 days if you want to see everything. The good: lots of activities including floating through rivers, Snuba, dolphins, water activities. We only made it through 1 floating river and wanted to do... More

Most beautiful park I have ever visited. Too big to see in one day. Be prepared to walk as the park is very large. My recommendation is to book through your hotel when you arrive. We booked the Xcaret Plus package which included admission, transportation, 1 buffet, and mask and snorkel for $159.00 American. The admission to the park on... More

Wonderful experience! A wide ranges of activities and experiences suitable for all ages and physical abilities! The grounds are clean, well maintained and beautiful. The signs and maps inside the park are well positioned and clear and the paths connecting the attractions and activities are colour coded and easy to follow. There are also trees along paths that provide shades... More
