Passe um dia no paraíso em Xcaret, um parque eco-arqueológico localizado na Riviera Maia. Descubra um labirinto subterrâneo de rios onde os maias preparavam seus rituais, divirta-se em uma lagoa, e mergulhe com snorkel nas águas cristalinas do Caribe. Mantenha os olhos atentos para as aves, borboletas e macacos enquanto você percorre as exuberantes áreas florestais e visita locais arqueológicos. Quando o sol se por, acomode-se para uma vista espetacular do show de luzes, música e dança que destaca a história e a cultura maia. Conveniente embarque e desembarque na maioria dos hotéis de Cancun estão incluídos.
Já havia estado em Xcaret há alguns anos. O parque está mais estruturado, com bons restaurantes e várias atrações. As crianças adoraram!! Valeu a pena!! Só estranhei a utilização indiscriminada de animais nas várias atrações, não só neste parque como em outros. Nossa legislação ambiental não permitiria o uso de animais silvestres dessa forma. Mas ao que parece, no México ainda é permitido.
I have visited this setting multiple times over the years and have been thrilled every time. The night show is a must - get the dinner. Not only is it delicious, it is economical and gives you access to preferred seating. We sat row 1 beside one of the entrances for the performers - amazing experience. What a amazing venue - you can learn so much or just have fun. Explore as much as you can - there isn't a dull moment.
When we were picked up at our Cancun resort, the driver told us that our names were not in the system. I showed him my written confirmation and he was able to resolve the matter when we arrived at their bus depot/headquarters where we changed to another bus that brought us to Xcaret. The guide on the bus talked our ears off the entire ride, loudly repeating himself over and over. He kept telling us that it would be a great decision to spend 69 for the park's picture service. He talked so much it made us dizzy. It turns out that many, if not most of the best attractions at Xcaret cost a lot more additional money to partake in, typically an additional 60 more per person, per attraction. This is like going to Disney World and paying a lot extra for each of the top attractions like Space Mountain. We paid 30 each for a buffet tip. It was pretty good for mass-produced food. The animals at the park were very enjoyable to see, especially the manatees and turtles. Great macaws! The aquarium displays are EXCELLENT! My wife swam the full length of the underground river and enjoyed it very much. We also enjoyed the beach. We wanted to go on the half-hour speedboat ride but no thanks for an additional 60 each. I recommend this excursion but realize that once there, it can cost you a fortune to partake in the top attractions! We were glad we went, but would not go again.
Be sure to call the tour operator 2 days in advance before the excursion to get the correct pickup time. Our confirmation stated 8:15am pick-up. When I called they said 7:30am. We were downstairs waiting to be picked up at 7:20. Well the bus pulled up at 7:26am. My husband and I began walking towards the bus, but we were actually behind it. At exactly 7:28 2 minutes later the bus took off without us. The driver did not hear us yelling or see us running. I immediately called the tour office, and spoke to a woman asking her to send the bus back to us. She said they are on a schedule and we would need to meet up with the bus at the next stop. So I asked her the hotel name, and fortunately there were taxi's lined up right next to our hotel so we grabbed one for 8 USD and headed off to the next hotel. Thank Gawd we make it. When I asked the Guide why they took off so quickly, and why they did not wait until the clock hit 7:30 he said they didn't see anyone waiting so they figured we must have made other plans. Not a good way to run a business.
Anyhow the park is beautiful and amazing. We were done, tired, and wiped out by 2:30pm so we grabbed a taxi and came back to our hotel for some R and R.
Don't Miss THIS!!! It's breathtaking! Going here makes for a long day, we bought the package with lunch, which worked well for us and it was quite good. We enjoyed the underground river and sat on the beach after lunch to enjoy the beauty. We returned on the 445 bus and thoroughly enjoyed the excursion.
Prompt pickup at the hotel. Totally briefed on the bus ride there. Once arrive have to pick extra activities you want to do. Recommend Ses Trek. Ears equalize.Underground river was cool. Recommend buying ticket with meal, several restaurants. Show ok. Guides help you get on the right bus after show.
We enjoyed the day but needed more time. The first thing they have you do is wait in line to pay for the extra activities. We chose to swim with the dolphins and there was a special for just 10 more to also do snorkeling. Though these two activities were pretty cool, it took up most of our day - 90 minutes for snorkeling and 30 for dolphins, plus you needed to arrive early for each activity. So I feel like our entry fee was for swimming down the underground river and the evening show. Made the day very pricey. When choosing where to eat our dinner, the first 3 restaurants were closed. If the weather was warmer, we may have decided to go the next day as well. Due to the wind, the tower was closed. No need to pay for up close dinner seats at the evening show. All seats are great!
