So much culture and appreciation for life and preserving nature in this park. We had a great time swimming and doing the extra activities. I would recommend buying an eco friendly sunscreen and bug repellent prior to visiting. Very interactive and beautiful scenery.

Xacaret is a great place to spend the day with your family and friends. Make sure to wear lots of sunscreen and good walking shoes. There is an underground river to cool off in.

Hi, it seems (according to their website) that you can do that. I would recommend contacting their Customer Service line at 1-855-326-0682 in the US. They would be able to tell you definitively.
