    XCARET 8/10
    Xcaret - Cancun most amazing eco park
    25th March 2010

    We pre-booked online to get the 10% discount.
    I recommend you dont buy the two day pass online. On entry you are given a 50% discount ticket that is valid when you book a second day before you leave the park. If you are doing additional activities its likely you will need a second day because there is so much to see.
    We did the "plus" entry with dolphins and felt the upgrade to "plus" entry was worth the extra cost.

    It took us just over an hour to get there from Dreams Tulum and for a minibus (organised on the day with the bell boys at our hotel) that seated 13 it was $160 for a round trip. This may have been cheaper if pre-booked through an outside vendor but we didn't have time to shop around transport vendors before we left.

    I recommend you get there asap, particularly if you are doing additional experiences. I dont know if its cos we had 13 people and we were all doing extra activities but it seemed to take ages to get our tickets issued and then once we entered the park we had to go to a second booth to get our schedule for our Dolphin encounter and then a third booth to get our schedule for the shark experience and sea trek!
    All in all by the time we had got all our tickets, handed in our non bio sunlotion, walked to the plus changing facilities and stowed everything in our lockers it had taken over an hour!

    Its a big place so make sure you take all your vouchers and essentials with you at this point to save having to come back here.

    We did the dolphin encounter at 11.30am and it was excellent. It was a full program with maximum interaction time and lots of photo opportunities.

    Unfortunately you cannot take you own underwater camera into the enclosure with you. Take a credit card or extra cash for photos and the dvd, they were expensive but it was a once in a lifetime thing so we thought it was worth it and we just bought one per group and did copies at home.
