Best Experience in the Yucatan
MiguelSteffan_M
, Apr 2022
Easily the top attraction in the Yucatan, this place has it all. Underground rivers, a recreated Mayan village, a massive aviary and butterfly pavilion, jaguars and pumas, sea lagoons and the chance to swim with dolphins, sharks and lots of sea life. The day culminated in a spectacular show of Mexican history and regional dances.

Magical Place!

Xcaret is truly a magical place. From swimming in underground rivers and swimming with dolphins and sharks, to exploring authentic Mayan ruins, to exploring massive aviaries, butterfly pavilions and re-created Mexican villas and churches, this place has it all. Every time we go back, we experience something new. The spectacular night show is worth the visit alone.

Not a great day at XCARET!
Judy_P
, Apr 2022
Weather was bad so it ruined the day, saw a show which was good and food was very good but a lot of walking required and not much to do free that interested me. Would have stayed for the night show but kids were bored and the dinner a ridiculous price. Already paid a fortune to get there.
