Xcaret is like an Eco Maya theme park. We just love this place. It is a paradise for children and you can spend the whole day there.
Some of the attractions include a reenactment of a traditional Maya ballcourt game, butterfly pavilion, traditional Mexican dance and music, small zoo and much more. The swimming here is excellent and the water theme park rivals Disney World; in fact we think it is better.
