This is a great place. You can truly spend all day here. There are a bunch of extra activities to purchase and do, dolphin swim, nurse shark swim, fish therapy, adreneline boat rides, snorkling, sea trek, snuba, etc. You arrive around 9am after the tour guide gives you a bunch of information about the park. You will not be able to use your sunscreen, but you can trade it in for individual packets of natural sunscreen and get your sunscreen back when you leave the park. We ended up buying a bug spray with SPF 15 in it from the gift shop. I think we paid 8 or so, not too bad. We started out floating/swimming in the underground river since someone had told us that the earlier you do it the less crowded it was. You get a locker to put your things in and they give you a huge bag iwth a lock, if you want it, to put things in that you want when you get out of the river on the other side of the park. You pick up a lifejacket and you can get fins if you want them. Personally, if you can swim there really is no need for fins plus it is a bit crowded.

They have two return times, 4:40 and 9:40, which was nice. The 9:40 one is after the show.

A must see attraction! Difficult to pack everything into one day, but doable. Staying for the night show is a must!

The underground river was unique. The program at the end of the day is a must to see. You will need all day to see the park.

The pickup by the bus was horrible. We sat on the bus for more than an hour at one hotel while the guide went to find a few other tourists.
Xcaret is fantastic--the Mexican restaurant buffet, the not-to-be-missed two night spectaculars, etc.

The bus ride from our hotel to Xcaret was quick and professional. This is a nice day trip thing to do. All of the wildlife that is available for viewing is pretty amazing - especially the large sea turtles. The food/drinks are excellent and the access to a variety of beaches is ample.

Great place to spend the day. Needed more time to see all of the park, particularly if you attended the dinner show. The dinner show was good. We ate dinner at the show and the food was excellent. The Mexican lunch buffet was also good with a lot of food choices. We really enjoyed the underground river, hammocka, butterfly exhibit, and the Mayan and horse shows..

Beautiful and fun day trip. I have already recommended this trip to several friends and family members. Great show at the end of the day, too.

The setting is beautiful. I've never seen so many trees in a park. Also if you do run out of things to do, you can just chill out on the beach which is part of the park. I also thought it was convenient to rent a locker for just 5.I had a great time.
