Sometimes it is hard to find all of these things in one location, but Xcaret offers it all.
When looking for information about Xcaret you will soon find that you can find a great deal of information about a park that is one of Mexico’s best eco-friendly parks.

You can spend a day walking around taking pictures without even doing an activity. Speaking of activities, there is something for everyone. There are a number of water activities that you can take part in while at the park. The most exciting for kids and adults is the swimming with the dolphins of course, but you can also do a shark tour, a snorkelling tour, you can swim in the underground rivers and so much more. These activities are not included in the price of your admittance ticket which is why you should plan your day in advance so that you know what you will have to pay extra for. There are some package deals that you can purchase when you purchase your tickets that give you the chance to do a couple of activities once your enter the park. Your ticket does include a free bottle of water and there are some packages that also offer you a meal at one of the many cafes and restaurants in the park.

Each evening there is a spectacular night show that presents many aspects of the Mayan culture. The show is designed for people of all ages.

There are a number of locations where you can stop to see some high flying aerobics, fantastic sculptures and there are even small markets set up along the many walk ways where you can purchase souvenirs. The possibilities are endless when visiting this park.
Due to the fact that there is a great deal of walking involved it would be wise to get there early, before the day starts to really heat up. The prices at the park can be quite expensive so you need to be prepared to spend more money than just your ticket price if you want to take part in any activities, but overall this park offers something for everyone.
