The Basics

A prebooked admission ticket or day tour to Xcaret park makes it easy to access an impressive range of activities, with entry including the opportunity to snorkel with fish in natural lagoons, visit the park's Maya archaeological sites, and and catch the Xcaret Mexico Espectacular light and dance show. Some day tours have optional upgrades for extras such as a buffet lunch or exclusive changing rooms, while combo tours can be booked to also visit other nearby attractions, such as the Chichen Itza or Xel-Ha ruins or Xplor Adventure Park.

While there’s plenty to do within the bounds of a general admission ticket, a plethora of add-on activities are also available. For an extra fee, take a speed boat ride (from $59), snorkel atop an offshore coral garden (from $49), take in a theatrical interpretation of the origins of Mexican culture over dinner at the Gran Tlacho Theater (from $59), or experience the Temascal, a traditional four-part wellness ritual (from $39).

Priority Access: Combo Tour: Xcaret, Xel-Ha, Xplor and Xichen Itza
We had a fabulous time at Chichen Itza and Xcaret Park. The adventures at Xcaret were our favorite. The Sea Trek adventure is a must do. We also enjoyed the Rivers Tours and visiting the exotic animals. The buffet lunch was plentiful and delicious. We were happy that there was an option for a 4:30 p.m. return. 9:30 p.m. would have been much too long.

Tour Xcaret All Inclusive from Playa del Carmen
Xcaret made my Birthday Amazing 🏝🥳, My boyfriend and I had an amazing time. The food in the international buffet was not that good. But the huge frozen drinks in the stands were everything. There is alot of walking involved and even though I got the Xcaret All inclusive Plus package $225 each. It only includes very few things. Lunch and a show at night but not breakfast and dinner.

Xcaret Plus Tour - Included Transportation
I had the best day going to Xcaret water park. I didn't realize how much you can experience while visiting. This was an amazing experience that I will cherish for a lifetime. My son and I did a lot there and we ran out of time because there is so much to do. I went swimming with the dolphins, and in the underground cave. My son did the simi dive with sting rays and fish. I loved this experience and would love to do it again some day. Thank you, Suzette & Sean
