The Basics

A prebooked admission ticket or day tour to Xcaret park makes it easy to access an impressive range of activities, with entry including the opportunity to snorkel with fish in natural lagoons, visit the park's Maya archaeological sites, and and catch the Xcaret Mexico Espectacular light and dance show. Some day tours have optional upgrades for extras such as a buffet lunch or exclusive changing rooms, while combo tours can be booked to also visit other nearby attractions, such as the Chichen Itza or Xel-Ha ruins or Xplor Adventure Park.

While there’s plenty to do within the bounds of a general admission ticket, a plethora of add-on activities are also available. For an extra fee, take a speed boat ride (from $59), snorkel atop an offshore coral garden (from $49), take in a theatrical interpretation of the origins of Mexican culture over dinner at the Gran Tlacho Theater (from $59), or experience the Temascal, a traditional four-part wellness ritual (from $39).

Our tour guide Winter made this experience amazing! He and driver Orlando knew exactly where to go and how to answer questions with out any hesitation. Xcaret is such a beautiful place and is so big you need a couple days to see it all. My group was very impressed with swimming with sharks and sting rays, plus seeing sea turtles, alligators, many colorful fish, manatees and so much more!! I will definitely be going here again and highly recommend booking this tour!
