Xcaret, Cancun Reviews

  • Had an amazing day at Xcaret! Took the ADO bus from downtown Cancun, which was really convenient and easy: highly recommend compared to the Xcaret transportation which forces you to wake up early for a 7 am pickup. We loved the birds, the butterflies, the turtles, the underground river, and the Mayan show at the end of the day. There is so much to do that you could easily spend two days here and still have more to see! We wish we had gotten Xcaret plus, since there is very little to eat other than the scattered buffet restaurants, which are $30 each, so you may as well pay the extra $30 for plus (which in addition to the included buffet, includes free lockers, snorkeling equipment, and access to a special Xcaret plus area). Most of the park is well shaded, which is great for shielding yourself from the hot sun. There is also biodegradable sunscreen available for sale, since they don't allow normal sunscreen. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We will certainly come back if we are ever in the Cancun/Playa del Carmen area again!

  • 0 disappointments in this place... This place is great. In my opinion it is well worth the price. There is a lot of amazing things to see and do and you should definitely go there early so you have enough time to see everything. The money for the entrance fee not only covers the things that you will see do and enjoy while in the park it also helps in the Parks effort of keeping the park meticulously groomed and they do a great job at that. If you're planning a trip to Mexico and you want to see this place let me tell you that it is directly connected to the Occidental Xcaret Resort ( also 5 stars ) Choose these two together and you have unlimited access in and out all day long which in turn saves you from having to eat inside the park if you're looking to save money, but there are a lot of really good restaurants right in the park and as usual it's an amusement park and it will be a little bit more expensive than your average restaurant outing. Great experience overall, and be sure to check out the Night Show✨....you won't want to miss it

  • Very fun place for kids and adults! All the water activities and animals is fun. Every penny worth it! The show at the end is a must see! Everything is so calm and have space and not too crowded, and the staff just let's you enjoy and not bother. Bring waterproof case to take pictures in the river. Recommend to bring your own towels and bring water shoes, also bring snacks and drinks, a lot of walking that build up thirst and takes energy. Prices are same as USA, just like any other amusement park in the states. Can't wait to come back!

  • Incredibly awesome park. Very clean and well maintained. Beautiful surroundings with lots of things to do. You can't get bored here. Floating the rivers was an amazing experience. Park staff were very informative and helpful. The food was excellent and at a fair price. This park is a must do if you are in the area, never give up the chance to go here. It was awesome!

  • What's not to love! Professional staff great food buffet style.. Endless activates for the whole family. A lot of walking so be ready stay hydrated bring your own towels and there are lockers provided. If you have a water proof phone case bring it swim in the river its amazing. Stay for the after show a lot of information about their culture and the music is awesome. I would recommend and of course I will return.
