An absolutely amazing day, lots of activities to do so be sure to plan your day well to take advantage of everything. Reflecting on it, I’d recommend doing a two day trip here if you plan to do everything! Enjoy it, we certainly did!

Xcaret a must in Cancun
Mario_G, June 2023
Loved the river under the cave and the dolphins experience is a must. Definetly need to spend more than one day to see it all and experience it but it is a memorable place.
Great adventure
DIANE_H, June 2023
We enjoyed everything! The rivers, food and service were great. The most amazing show was at 7pm. This tour was a very good choice.
Xcaret a must see
Yolanda_C, May 2023
Everything was excellent. Transportation on time and very comfortable. Xcaret is beautiful and has something for everyone. Evening show was impressive. Well worth the money.
Highly Recommended
Baudelio_C, May 2023
The show at 7:00 pm. It was very interesting to see how the Mexican culture developed, all the way from the beginning.
Nice View
Brittany_D, May 2023
I liked this park, if you have small children this is the park for you! Other then that everything was extra and the dinner for the show we paid $90 person and it was not at all worth it a waste of money!! The show was cool and there was stuff to look at but other then that everything was extra and it only included one meal!! For the price it’s not worth it, just my opinion!!
Awesome experience
Satish_V, May 2023
Pick up from the hotel and guiding us in Xcaret and drop off..all was very seamless. Experience in Xcaret was very good for the family
Not worth the entrance money unless you want to pay another $300 on top
Kristopher_O, May 2023
This is an awful experience that isn’t worth the money at all. You pay a lot of money to get into the park and then have to pay approximately $75 per person per main excursion option on arrival. Everything is a hard sell! Even down to the $40 waterproof phone cases for the lazy river that smells so bad in places we nearly got out the water. We paid $40 per person at an on-site restaurant for a buffet where the food is so terrible even the wild animals stayed away. Also, they have dirty and tiny enclosures where you feel so bad for the captive animals inside.
Excellent experience

Janet_M, Apr 2023
We felt save, enjoyed the rides and the park was beautiful. The food was great and the views were breathtaking
Park is amazing but tour guides let you down
Cian_b, Apr 2023
That park from top to bottom is was worth the money. The plus package is 100% worth is and saves you money in the long run. Food was amazing and park was fantastic. Its a total pity about the misogynistic rude xcaret tour guides. Both guides for the transportation were ruide, unhelpful and just wanted to sell you items. I would 100% go again but will never deal with the ignorance of these guides again. I would not tolerate how they treated me and my wife again.
The up-sell starts the minute you get on the bus
Alan_B, Apr 2023
Visited Xcaret on Friday 4/14. The park is very nice and the river floats were interesting. The park is not inexpensive to visit. With transportation from Cancun Hotel Zone hotels it was over $200 USD/pp and that just gets you in the door. A good portion of the 1 hour plus ride was a marketing/sales presentation to introduce you to all the add on experiences. That was not enjoyable. If you want to be nickel and dimed at every turn then this is the trip for you. I’d pass on doing it again.
Very enjoyable for my kids so good experiences
Alena_P, Apr 2023
We loved xcaret so awesome trip. Thanks for patience with me as deaf person. Next time, you give the information of schedule times to xcaret activities for deaf people.
Excitement overload
Hillary_C, Apr 2023
I enjoyed the shows,the beach, and the exhibits. The excitement was unending. The river was amazing and seeing the animals was so educational. I have to come back and complete the tour.
Not worth the money!
nimi_c, Apr 2023
The transfer was 3hrs not 1.5hrs as stated, including pick up at MANY hotels….the guide was very pushy trying to upsell extra activities rather than focusing on telling us about all the amazing things included in the ticket! The staff were also VERY pushy when you got to the park to upsell photos/water/activities it was very intense! the park is also quite tired and dirty now, we visited 10years ago and it was amazing but what we saw this time was a world apart which is such a shame! The coach included in the plus ticket also only departs at 4pm or 9.30pm which was too early and too late for us so we spent $100 USD on a cab to get back to our hotel
Best experience ever!
Jerry_O, Apr 2023
Our experience was great! From the tour guide, to the bus driver, to the experience at the park, it was amazing ! We will definitely do it again!
Long day but overall wonderful park, nice day
Lee_M, Apr 2023
Loved the property, especially swimming in the cave river and the bird aviary. A lot of walking! Even though we rested quite a bit it was still a long, tiring day waiting for the 7:00 show to begin and then finally getting back to our resort an hour away. Overall a nice day! Would definitely not recommend a full day with show if you have an infant or children under 5 or 6.
Gotta do it!
Todd, Apr 2023
Ya gotta do it . . Full day experiment 9am to 10:30pm . . Do it! The 3 rivers. . . Must do! The snorkeling . . Skip it.
Elaine_G, Mar 2023
We did Xcaret on my husband’s birthday and it was great! I completely understand why all the reviews I read said that you can’t do everything in one day. Because you really can’t. However. The things we wanted to do, we were able to. The underground River swim was AMAZING. There are plenty of photo places so you don’t need to have your phone with you. Plenty of people opted to bring their phone and purchase a water proof case but I didn’t want to chance it so we both left our phones in the lockers. I also understand why people say it’s easy to spend a ton of money here. Because if you want to do a lot of extra activities then yes… you’ll spend a lot of money. Don’t worry about being pressured to buy all the activities at the beginning though. Most activities have a spot where you can purchase it there as well. My biggest tips…. Buy the photo package, bring your own water shoes (or else you’ll have to purchase one there… well… you don’t have to but walking around and getting into the water is so much easier with them), bring your own towel, and stay for the night show! It is amazing! We bought the dinner package as well for the experience. It’s 7 plates and some people said it’s not worth the cost, but honestly it added to the experience.
Long but amazing day....
suzanne_s, Mar 2023
Long but amazing day. Paid extra for seven course dinner don’t they show but food was disappointing show was amazing
Horrible Logistics w Tour Agency!
Carlos_M, Mar 2023
Xcaret park is magnificent. Once again the Tour Agency asked us to drive out to the Wyndham Gardens for pick which is 45 minutes from our hotel City Plus Cancun Aeropuerto Riviera which is a major inconvenience. We drove directly to the park again like we did the previous night to XOXOMILCO. The tour agency both nights ignored that we picked City Express Cancun Riviera from Viator's drop down menu that's next door and sent us to the opposite side of town so we drove to both parks instead with our rental car. My advice is book the tours to these two parks yourself otherwise you are at the mercy of the tour agency for pick and you would end up paying more for taxi's back and forth Rent a car if possible. Taxis are extremely expensive in Cancun.
