Didn’t live up to the hype
Jessica_R
, Jul 2022
I honestly thought for the price we paid ($420) for the basic entry with transportation plus the buffet ($126) and the photos taken throughout the park ($100) for 2 adults and 2 children were overpriced. It was a pretty place to see and experience but I was pretty disappointed by the actual water activities there were to do. The buffet was the worst part of what I spent money on. The husband and kids barely ate because they didn’t like the options and it was very expensive. I would rather have spent the money on a different excursion.

Pick ups are available at selected hotels within the hotel zone. If you get picked up at the meeting point for XCARET base you will be dropped off there at your return. Basic ticket includes entry to the night show. If you want to enjoy extra water activities you need to pay for them. Good for all ages. Take an extra set of clothes and shampoo or soap to rinse off afterwards. Recommend to wear water shoes. Transportation bus did not have restrooms. Prepare for a 1.5 hr ride.

Not worth the money

Not the best experience to do while vacationing . The only perk was the free transportation to park . The park itself is nice but all you do is walk and spend $ as everything is super expensive from water to food, extra activities and souvenirs.

Good trip with major issues

The park itself is very beautiful, the swim in the underground river alone is worth the price of admission. Other fun activities are very pricey ($85-$55 per person). Snorkeling that's included into the admission is in rather shallow water and too crowded. Otherwise it's a beautiful place to walk around and enjoy the sights. I took off another star because the time of the departure was set incorrectly as 7am, I even called a day before and got a confirmation that it was indeed 7am and we should be in the lobby at 6:45 sharp. In reality the time was stated incorrectly and the pick up was at 9:15am. I only got that info from a local operator who was picking up another group of tourists. Viator customer service was never able to provide me with the correct time. Waking up at 6am or 8am for a long trip with kids makes a big difference.

XCARET! Was so amazing!! Our bus picked us up from my hotel and they drove us to the park. The tour guide was excellent. He talked to us about the park and how the color lines work. He suggested we start at the black line and do the Rio. I highly suggest that as well! Also, you can book activities but they do cost extra. I believe they are worth it. We booked the speed boat, kids swimming with sting rays and the walking under water with string rays. Super fun activities. Also, please stay for the show, it’s beautiful. Show is from 7-9. Arrive from 5:30-6 at the theater so you can get a seat. After the show it was easy to get back to our bus. Get the transportation, it’s so worth it!

Alessa_B

We had done XPlor Fuego a few nights prior and think that was the best if your looking for a water and cave type experience. The river float at Xcaret was good and same with the raft experience. The snorkel area was a joke and was packed. People weren’t overly friendly or helpful here except for our waiter during the buffet. The show was really good and worth checking out. The overall park was cool but the day was just too long

Total Scam!!!!
Scott_D

I had two issues with my experience at xcaret park. The price of admission should have been around $50.00 USA dollars per person at best considering all the excursions were an additional charge and the only things that comes with a admission ticket is floating down a river, swimming and a show at the end of the day which none of it was worth the admission price. Second, we purchased out tickets with Viator and they straight up lied. They charged my family of five $139.00 USA dollars per person for a total price of $699.00 USA dollars to enter the part. According to Xceret web site, the price of entry for the park is 109.00 dollars but because our tickets included a lunch buffet, I thought this was a good deal. First mistake I made was trusting viator. When it came time to eat, we were told the arm bands we were issued didn’t include a meal. When we complained to management, We were told our tickets were not purchased from xceret, which is true, our ticket were purchased from Viator. To make things worse, we ate the lunch buffet and were shocked to find out our bill came to $200.00 USA dollars minus the tip. If you add the $200.00 USA dollars for the buffet and the additional 30.00 per ticket ($150.00 USA dollars) for our buffet, our meal really cost $350.00 USA dollars. That is HORRIBLE and UNACCEPTABLE!!! I have never written a review in my life and the reason I am this time is to warm others against viator.

Awesome time! The place is so large, it would be smart to plan out what exactly you’d want to do. I highly recommend bringing walking shoes as well as water shoes. There is so much to see and do, you’ll be doing some walking.

Super cute pick up bus! Pick up time was as stated in the email. Park was so much fun! The tour guy advised for us to stay and watch the late show and we did but it was such a long day for us.

Don’t go for the snorkeling or beach experience!
Vickie_D
, May 2022
Expected a nice beach to relax on but there really wasn’t much to speak of. Too, I expected to be able to snorkel off of the beach, in something other than a small closed, crowded area with lots of other people. For the cost, it was pretty disappointing.

Swimming under the cave, visiting the Mayan village and the many activities Xcaret offers were engaging, exciting and fun. The show at end of the day was awesome 😊.
