What a fun, but costly day! We brought too much stuff books and extra clothes but at least there were lockers. It was good to have at least one towel. We didn't bring our I-phones, dummies that we are, but should have. We found out we could have borrowed an underwater camera from our Royal Holiday hosts. We would have booked through Royal Holiday if we had known better but this tour was fine.

Xcaret was amazing to say the least!! I highly recommend booking this tour.. Our ride/guide was there at the hotel at the time we were told. Our Guide was Fabian. He is such a funny guys. It was a pleasure to meet him. He made our ride there fun. He was very knowledgeable about the park and helpful enough that he recommended certain attractions depending on our interest. I will definitely be booking this tour again when I return with the whole family.
