the cenotes are so worth it! Wildlife there is so beautiful! Will be returning in the future! make sure to book pick up and drop off ahead of time & if traveling for mulitple days, definitely recommend renting a car instead
The Magical World of Mexico
Jose_B, Mar 2024
This place is a must see if you’re in Playa del Carmen…the place is so magical and exhilarating…too many places to enjoy plus a pretty good choices of restaurants to eat buffet lunch and a finale cultural show that’s so fantastic, well choreographed and great costumes. Feels like you’re watching an Olympic presentation of Mexico. It’s worth the money to spend the day with…
It was enjoyable once in the Park
Eduardo_H, Mar 2024
The staff was pleasant and very accommodating. The park was easy to navigate, we felt safe, and the live entertainment was superb. The only drawback was transportation. The hotel getting a taxi versus you getting a taxi in front of the park are a different experience. We were charged two different prices.
Great Day!
Jeanette_L, Mar 2024
We had an excellent time at Xcarat. The water park section was refreshing, and we thoroughly enjoyed the show at the end! 🙌🏽
Gem_P, Feb 2024
We brought this for my Father in laws birthday and they had an incredible time, they took over 700 photos, it was 14 hour day.
Sierra_S, Jan 2024
Definitely a must when coming to Mexico! This park truly exceeded my expectations. There’s so much to do here including swimming with the dolphins under water excursions and so much more. Bring a bathing suit and of course some comfortable shoes I suggest water shoes. Overall, I gave this place a 10 out of 10. If visiting I would definitely recommend transportation.
Amazing as always
Brett_R, Jan 2024
Rained most of day but arrived at 2pm and things cleared enough for us to enjoy, lots of shelter in jungle areas and in enclosers. Such a great place always one of my faves.
Stefano_A, Jan 2024
The park has many different attractions: underground rivers to swim into, boat ride in a river, orchids, animals, mayan ruins, birds, butterflies, Mexican buildings reproductions, amazing evening show, beach... we did not find a cenote, which we thought was there. Everything is amazing, well organised. If you want to do it all you might need 2 days, unless you're quick. Even the toilets are architecturally interesting! Great for kids and adults. You can add on experiences paying extra (swimming with dolphins, sharks, etc).
Do not miss this park!!
Jennifer_S, Jan 2024
Plan to stay the entire day and enjoy everything you can fit in!! This was our second visit to the park. Last time we did all the river swims but missed a huge part of the park so we went in this time with a plan to get to the other attractions. Well, we need to plan another trip!! There’s NO way you can even do all the included activities in one day or even two. When you arrive you have to go wait in line at the ticket booth and that was the only wait we had all day. There’s a form you have to sign and the employees in the line just skipped us right over for that so we had to do it while out bracelets were being issued. Go, enjoy!!
Nice show but confusion/unclear instructions
Alberto_M, Jan 2024
The show was incredible! Highly recommended, but we weren't told we could get to the park earlier to get the full experience! Indeed, on our online tickets, it was stated that the park was open from 4pm to 11pm. When we arrived, one of the customer service staff told us that we had arrived late and had to pay extra to eat at the buffet, and that we couldn't enjoy the park's other attractions...... We are very disappointed with the confusion and unclear instructions.
Still a great day 23 yrs later
Victoria_H, Jan 2024
We loved the dolphins, turtles, & animals & cave swim & shows. I missed seeing & hearing about the living spaces & culture of the various areas that we did when we were here 23 years ago.
Large family fun
Marc_E, Dec 2023
The evening show was simply unforgettable. Very well done. Be prepared for a long day, but the basic package worked well for us since we had a large group with small kids, adolescents, and a wheelchair. Wonderful aviary.
Great experience
Jaylen_W, Dec 2023
We swam in river which was nice, then we snorkeled and finished up with the show which was amazing. GO!
A must do when visiting Playa del Carmen
Jonathan_B, Dec 2023
Floating down the river was amazing!! The show at the end of the day was beyond description. We had a fantastic time.
Great experience
Jasmyr_G, Dec 2023
I love how I was playing with dolphins and the river experience. Very nice views. Amazing buffet and the food was delicious.
Not adequate value for the money
Joanna_O, Dec 2023
Lot of park is under reconstruction as por December 2023. It is so much overpaid comparing to Disneyland or Universal Studio theme parks in US. 1 of 3 rivers out of order, view tower closed, animals like Pumas and Jaguars not there until end of recostruction. Eve with all attractions available, still too expensive.
Danielle_G, Aug 2023
The River was amazing! It’s a long route to swim but you are given life jackets. There were a lot of people in the way and they don’t have signs for traffic to keep it less congested. I was not a fan of the food for lunch but everything else nice! We didn’t get to see everything in one day. I also don’t like how you’re already paying to get in the park and there are different excursions that you have to pay for. The night show is really nice as well but we were so exhausted we were falling asleep during the second half of the show. Outside of that, I recommend this place.
Amazing family vacation
Concepcion_G, Jul 2023
Everything was wonderful! The park is well maintained, staff is professional and knowledgeable. The bird sanctuary was a personal favorite. The underground river was so much fun. I’m not a swimmer. With a life vest and lifeguard in the water I felt safe. He even helped me a little and gave me some tips to stay a float. The show at the end of the night is a full blown theater production. It summarizes Mexico’s rich history from pre colonial times to present in such a beautiful artistic way. I didn’t want the day to be over. Highly recommend to all!
Natures top ones
JOAQUIM_C, Jul 2023
