Escape for the day to Xcaret, Mexico's ecological and archeology park located in Riviera Maya. On this full-day trip from Cancun to Xcaret, swim in a lagoon, snorkel in the clear aqua waters of the Caribbean and discover a network of subterranean rivers. Watch for monkeys, bird life and butterflies as you stroll through the jungle at Xcaret and take tours of the ancient Mayan archaeological sites. After the sun sets, enjoy folkloric entertainment that highlights the ancient Mayan culture around Cancun, Mexico. This Xcaret outing includes pickup and drop-off at most hotels in Cancun.
What to Expect
After pickup at your Cancun hotel, travel in air-conditioned comfort to Xcaret Park outside of Cancun. This Xcaret excursion offers activites for every interest, from history to ecology to adventure.
Explore the underground caverns beneath the jungle, once used by the Mayans for cleansing rituals before sailing to Cozumel Island, a sacred site. Keep an eye out for brightly-colored macaws, deer and monkeys as you wander through the network of subterranean tunnels.
Discover the orchid garden, a favorite of nature-lovers and amateur botanists. Check out the butterfly pavilion and the aviary, as well as the aquarium featuring specimens of gorgeous coral reefs. Head to the beach to relax, swim in the warm, calm waters or snorkel with sea turtles. Most of these activities are included in your admission to Xcaret. Prices for additional activities may vary.
If you want to extend your outing at Xcaret in Cancun, stay for the Excaret Mexico Espectacular, a show full of folkloric entertainment, dancing and music. Follow the narrative of Mexican history from the pre-Columbian era until modern day through the performers.
Xcaret Plus Upgrade:
Enjoy a buffet lunch, including orange juice and lemonade. Use snorkeling gear to further explore Xcaret's waters off of Cancun, Mexico and receive access to the Plus, Area, which includes a more exclusive and private changing room and shower area.
At the end of the day, enjoy drop-off at your Cancun hotel.

Nice park

We got there at 800 am. And stayed until the big show at night. It was a nice park. If you do the show pay the extra for dinner.

Expedia have the best prices when booking in bundle. I always book a whole package, including flights, hotel, transportation and excursions with Expedia. It seems that is the best way to save.
