Spend a day in paradise at Xcaret, an eco-archaeological park located in the Riviera Maya. Discover an underground maze of rivers where Mayans once prepared for ceremonial rites, frolic in a lagoon, and snorkel in clear Caribbean waters. Keep your eyes peeled for birds, butterflies and monkeys as you wander the lush forested grounds and visit archaeological sites. When the sun goes down, settle in for a spectacular show of lights, music and dance highlighting Mayan history and culture. Convenient pickup and drop-off from most Cancun hotels are included.

our tour guy Juan Pablo was very informative they arrived on time for the pick up. On the bus they explained everything in detail to us, we were amazed how everything was so organized, easy to display around everything has numbers so you cant get lost. The buffet was amazing go to Laguna Buffet you will enjoy it believe me. We took the bus way back earlier and we have no problems getting back into our hotel. Me and my husband had a great experience, will come back with family and friends.

This tour company is very well organized. Everyone was brought to the same place and then separated into tours from there so everyone on our bus was going to Xcaret. Once there, our guide was so helpful to get everyone organized. There is much to see and do once at Xcaret and the night show was fantastic. I would pay the extra money to get the plus adventure so you can have a locker. This is a full day tour, we did not get back to our hotel until 11:00 pm.

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.

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 had a great trip to Xcaret via air conditioned busses. Our guide going was very good about giving us info about the park and letting us know where to meet at the end of the day to board our bus again. It was professionally done. Reminders: 1. Not all suntan lotions are allowed in since it is an ecological park. You can buy an ecologically sound sun block at the park. Check website for more info. 2. Bring your own towels or rent them there. 3. This all day event ends at approx. 9 pm after the Xcaret Spectacular show buses left at 9:45 pm although it seemed that u also had the opportunity to go back at 4:45 pm. Check with company ahead of time 4. The underground river takes about 45-60 minutes swimming from point A to point B. There are multiple early exit routes through out. 5. Do not miss the Mexican buffet at La Cocina 6. The Xcaret Mexico spectacular is a MUST!!!

This was a great excursion. The park is beautiful and the kids 5 and 7 really loved the lazy river and beach. This one is well worth the money for the experience.

Our Xcaret Day Trip was absolutely amazing! It was especially nice that we did not have to drive. It was a great idea to have Viator pick us up and drop us off. I strongly encourage it. Can't wait to go back.

This was an excellent tour very smoothly arranged by Viator with hotel pickup and drop off perfect on time. The final show was a MUST SEE and the Viator bus waited for all of us very patiently to get back around 10 PM and brought us back to the hotel.

We had a great time. Not enough time to do everything, too many choices. Really enjoyed the evening show!
• Submitted 28 Jun 2017
Loved this one. Only thing is, its too much to enjoy everything in one day. We left early because we were so tired. We missed the show. We were bummed but loved the excursion. The extra things to do are so worth it. We did sea trek and loved every minute of it. Would definitely do again and so worth the money.

We were pick up at the hotel on time and got back to the hotel without any issues... The park is beautiful, there are plenty of activities to do and keep you busy all day long, there are also a lot of activities available that you have to pay extra for but are worth doing... There are a lot of good restaurants around the park, lots of things to see and do. The staff is very helpful and eager to help in any way the can, they really want to make sure you have a good time and a very enjoyable experience... And you have to stay to the night show spectacular, it is well put together and very entertaining, it is a very enjoyable show... Overall if you go to Cancun, you have to visit Xcaret and Viator make is a painless and wonderful way to experience it...

There is soooo much to do at Xcaret and you cannot cover it in one day especially if you are traveling with kids. Do the underground river FIRST. I did not use the flippers. I kept my swim shoes on. The water is FREEZING cold, but you QUICKLY adjust. Don't use the lockers---put all your clothes in the waterproof bag they give you and they bring the bag to the other side of the river for you to retrieve. SO MANY choices of food, but be careful, not all restaurants are included in your price. Also, there aren't a lot of activities included in the overall price, but don't worry, you won't get to do half of them anyway. For instance, riding the dolphins isn't included. After the lazy river, we ate and laid in the hammocks and took a nap to prep for the show. Then, we went to the beach area and played. The nightly show was amazing, but long. Shows the history of Mexico very well. So many people talked about how great the show was and I expected something different. I guess I expected a Cirque type of show. Arrive at least 30-45 minutes early to the theater for good seats. Overall, VERY glad we went. Just wished I purchased the tickets from my hotel because the deal was a whole lot better.

The family had a great time, especially with the underground river and the snorkeling. The Xcaret Mexico Espectacular show was AMAZING and very so neat in how they present the history and culture of Mexico! I just wish we had more time to explore everything the park had to offer.

The day spend in Xcaret was wonderful, especially for my grandson age 5. We truly enjoyed every aspect of the park. The food at the Mexican restaurant was out of this world. A day of fun!!!
