The park was better than expected. The rivers were amazing. The show in the evening is more than spectacular and worth waiting for and watching. You could swim with dolphins at some additional costs or you could spend a peaceful time at the beach once you are done with the river. If you plan to reach early morning try to... More

Lovely park with lots to see and do. We swam the river and paid extra to swim with the rays; a great experience. Buffet wasn't particularly nice but we left it late to eat and the show was absolutely stunning. Aviary and butterflies were beautiful. We got a deal on the photographs

I was very excited before going to Xcaret but I was disappointed when I got there. Except for an artificial beautiful river, some animals, tiny overcrowded beach, there is nothing to do the whole day. The show was very impressive in the beginning and fine overall. But honestly, I think, this park is severely overpriced. The Asian parks are so... More

Originally, we were supposed to go to Xplor, one of the Xcaret parks that catered more to extreme sports lovers, but I had a second degree burn on my stomach which made it impossible for me to wear the harnesses for ziplining and the other activities that park offered. We called customer service and exchanged our tickets for tickets to... More

This place is amazing! We spent the whole day here and there was plenty to do to keep us entertained all day. The underground rivers are an amazing experience.
