This trip definitely needs to be on your list of things to do! We were picked up & dropped off at our hotel & were contacted prior to the trip to advise where pick up would be from. Xcaret itself is an amazing place to go to with so many activities! We opted for the standard package which in my opinion for 2 of us was the best option - the only difference in the 2 packages was that we didn’t get a free locker (but could rent one for cheap) & didn’t have the buffet included (but the buffet is around $40 per person) we payed for 2 meals for lunch and dinner and spent less than $80. The evening show doesn’t start till 8pm which makes it a very long day but well worth staying and watching if you can last that long! Extra cost to factor in: 1) They have lots of activities you can pay extra for - we did the undersea trek 2) Photos: you can buy the photo package and scan your wristband at all photo stations where it collates your photos, worth the money if you take lots of photos!

Excellent experience, the are so many zip line , all are 14 …7 more soft and 7 more hard, we did everything ! the most low is 15 mt the higher is 80-90 mt and long as 500 mt …so exacting to do this ….. the kitchen it’s open from 11 to 17 and everything it’s fresh and good …wonderful place ! I hope to came back again one day soon . Enjoy it! thank you from Italy
