We had a great day here but if you find lots of people a problem you may not get the nest from it.
We loved the lazy river swim, it’s quite long and takes about and hour but you are kitted out with flippers and life jackets so don’t need to be a good swimmer. There are options to get out about every quarter of the way.
There is lots to see and do, we really liked the turtles and snorkelling, lots of fish to see.
The Horsemanship show was really brilliant. If you go you must stay for the evening show which is truly spectacular!

I enjoyed every second. We started with the 'dry activities' - Butterflies, Mayan Village, birds and all the other wild animals. They are adorable. Then we did the underground river and the snorkling. We had the Plus Package, which i think it is better, and we also payed for photos - i also think this is great idea to do (but expansive). We can take many photos using cameras that are spread around the park and it is really fun!

Great place. Confusing processes for lockers and life jackets. Expensive. But a great day all the same.

We toured the park during the day (1 day only) and then returned at night for the Mayan show (2 hrs long).

The day time adventures offered a lot to see and learn about the Mayan heritage. We did a lot of walking so wear comfortable shoes. After the first couple of hours we were getting very hot and decided to do the lazy river which goes thru a lot of tunnels. The lazy river is very long but very refreshing. We took the lazy river to the end and then continued our adventures to see the aquarium zoo. We really enjoyed checking out the sea turtles. After that we returned to our resort which was the Xcaret resort so walking distance of minutes. We had dinner and relaxed until we returned for the nigh show. I thought the price was a little high for the park but after seeing the 2 hour long show I understood. The show was amazing. I don't know if I would go to the park for the day again but I definitely would do the show again. Why not the park in the day again? I've done this type of stuff so many times that I am good, unless I have grandkids or with another couple and they want to go then I will

Try seatrek: Helmet on head and walking on bottom of ocean. Just wonderful experience. Swim with dolphins, rays, snorkel with fish. See animals all over. River ride for less adventurous. Place is fun for everyone in family. Lockers all over the place and free to use.
