If you order online ahead of time, it saves you like 15% or something, so we were considering purchasing before we leave. Any thoughts? Also, for about $15 more there's the package that includes transportation/shuttle from Xplor to your resort. My question is, does EDR already have a shuttle as is, and I shouldn't spend the extra money? I thought I saw they had a free shuttle to/from Playa Del Carmen, but wasn't sure if anyone had any insights on this. We really wanna go ziplining Thanks!
If you know you will be doing an excursion for sure, then I think purchasing ahead of time is worth the money. And yes, EDR does offer a shuttle to Playa del Carmen, but I think it's at a nominal cost. Just so you know, Xplor is about a 35 minute drive from EDR, and not located in Playa del Carmen. So you would need to use a taxi or purchase the shuttle pass, and at $15 per person I think that is a decent deal. (I think the taxi cost us about $30 each way. So if you have 4 people going, then a taxi might be a better option. Plus you are not limited by their time, you can come and go when you please.)
I have been to Xplor, and yes, there is tons to do! The zip lines are super fun, and the underground caverns are beautiful! As well, the online package includes your lunch, so that's a nice bonus.
