Our Recommendations


River swimming

We thoroughly enjoyed swimming in the rivers, cenotes and caves. With a life jacket, water shoes and a water-resistant phone case you are all set to swim a few hundred meters in nature and take unique photos. This is without a doubt an activity that will stay with you for the rest of your life!

Natural Polish

The natural pools bordering the ocean are also breathtakingly beautiful. It is a unique experience to be able to swim here and that with the best view. Here you can really relax. This is paradise on earth.

Butterfly garden and bird aviary

The butterfly garden and accompanying bird aviary are perhaps our favorite places in Xcaret. Combined, this is a gigantic place where, of course, you can see beautiful butterflies fluttering around. But also parrots and other birds. You walk among all these beautiful animals and you cannot experience that every day. Moreover, this place is so beautiful, with high waterfalls, bridges and special plants, that it is worth a visit in itself.


If you go to Xcaret, you just have to do some snorkeling. You can choose between different locations. For example, for an extra contribution, you can choose to snorkel between special fish and (tame) sharks. But you can also snorkel for free in the bay that ends in the ocean. A beautiful location to experience this!
Mexican traditions

giant tortoises

If you are planning a visit to Xcaret, be sure to walk past the giant tortoises. We think these are such impressive animals and we stayed there for a while and watched these animals splash in the water. Fun guaranteed!

A show for everyone

No visit to Xcaret is complete if you haven’t been to the fantastic traditional shows. During our visit they gave three different shows and they are all beautiful! If you can, check them all out. They each show something about the history of Mexico in a very beautiful and fascinating way. For example, there is a show that shows how the Mayans used to live and how their rituals took place. It is quite a spectacle, with dancing around a fire and typical chants. And all this in total equipment from then. Very impressive!

closing show

Although all shows show a lot of talent and spectacle, our absolute preference is for the last closing show that takes place in the large arena. This show is quite an experience and catapults you back into the history of Mexico, with all the trimmings. From fighting mayans to traditional folklore. All this with lots of color and danceable music that bring the fun to a high point. Simply sublime!

The most impressive water park


If we haven’t convinced you yet that Xcaret is the best water park, then you just have to go see it for yourself. Xcaret does not disappoint. Keep in mind that the price tag is fairly high if you want to do a lot of activities , because not everything is included in the entrance price. Still, it’s a must do when you’re in Mexico . We are very happy that we were able to experience this day. It was a day out of a thousand that we will never forget. We are certain that Xcaret is the most impressive water park ever!
