Fantastic full day at Xcaret

I was so impressed with this park! The attractions are great, the service impeccable, and the facilities compete with any of the well known Disney properties.

What a fantastic park! Filled with birds and animals, gorgeous flowers and plants, and interactions with different animals, there's something for everyone. If you're looking to book any of the extra activities (swimming with dolphins, snorkeling, underwater sea trek) make sure you arrive early, and book your time right away. You won't regret stopping here!

This park is beautiful and there is so much to do, we stayed at the hotel next door and visited the park 3 times during our stay. If we went back to Mexico again I would definitely revisit.

The park is beautiful. We had a great day strolling around there. The underground river was a little crowded, but it was still a relaxing, cool, lazy ride. There was a lot to see there. We found it helpful to see when certain attractions were scheduled and plan our other activities around that. The show in the evening is definitely... More

If you are going to swim the wonderful rivers - go mid to late afternoon after all the little kids are worn out. Morning is very busy!

A wonderful experience. A must to go to the night show it is worth the money. Plan to spend the whole day as the park is large and you can get food and drink there.
