Absolutely stunning place. Our second visit in 9 years. If your visiting Playa Car, book a trip to Exceret. We booked in resort with our TUI rep. Bought our ticket & it included a buffet meal & 1 drink. Return pick up choices of either leaving at 4:30 pm or you can stay for the evening show. Pick up then will be 9:30pm.The must do for me is the Mayan River. Your belongings are locked in a bag at the entry to the underground river. Your given a key, then body floats. At the end of the river you hand in your float & collect your belongings. Showers & changing booths are available & free. I must say, other than purchasing gifts we didn't need money.

Wow, what an amazing place this is....I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was not disappointed in the least! We arrived a little later than we wanted but packed in lots of fun regardless. They really put a lot of effort into making this place beautiful and really special. It's organized well and easy to get around from one activity to another. There really is an endless list of things to do, so PLAN AHEAD on what you want to maximize your time and experience. We did the boat ride, water caves, aquarium, buffet, and late night show. We took the ADO bus in from Cancun and was a bit over an hour - (important to note that if you are taking the ADO bus to the park to book your tickets well in advance as we were unable to get tickets until later in the day 😒 When we arrived we took the free park shuttle from the highway to the main gates ) (buffet - we got the tickets 2 weeks ahead online and upgraded to the one with the buffet. There are lots of buffets around the park that we came across. The food was eh not the best, not the worst, but it can be hit or miss with a buffet. There was a good assortment of food, so lots to chose from) (when we did the water caves, we put our bags in the water bag option and our stuff was at the end of the caves about an hour in the caves and water) I would also recommend snacks and drinks as the prices here for those things are typical of a theme park and expensive. The aquarium was nice and on route we got to see some other attractions and wildlife. The show at the end was really well done and gave you a history of Mexico. It was entertaining, musical, educational, and full of color and action. For this, we did the early show at 530pm, which was nice as all the park activities ended at 6 pm. Our show finished around 730pm. When we left we took the free shuttle back to the highway and waited on the side of the road for a collectivo which is a white van that comes by often and that took us to Playa del Carmen. It is fully crowded and packed up, so be prepared. It cost us 20 pesos each and was about 15 min into Playa del Carmen from the park. Then, from Playa del Carmen, we took another van to Cancun that was over an hour in a really packed van again for 45 pesos each. Those run on a 24-hour time frame, so staying and checking out Playa is an option if you are not in a rush to get back.Here are some things to know:*Book park tickets online*Bring photo ID*Bring snacks for the day*Upgrade to package with meal*Book your travel ahead, especially with ADO*book the early show if you are traveling further than the on-site hotels

Disappointing on a cloudy day. Some of the hands-on activities were closed (chocolate workshop, coconut workshop). Because it was chilly we didn't do the water activities. We wanted to see some shows but the schedule was not on the app, so we missed the flying men. Then the horse show was super crowded. We left before the main show because we got tired of the crowds. Some of the exhibits are unique and interesting: real Mayan ruins, manatees, caves, birds and the beaches are nice. We did the river boat ride, it's short and could be enjoyable but we were crammed into a boat with an unhappy baby and a loud family that tried to calm her.

A full day of fun and adventure!Definitely make plans to spend the entire day here! Review the website or download the app so that you can study the map and plan your day properly. If you're interested in swimming in the underground rivers, it's better to head there first and start your day. They have lockers where you can store your belongings or you can pack them in a travel bag and they will send your belongings down the river to meet you at the end. It's really convenient that way so you don't have to walk all the way back to the start of the river in your wet clothes. There's lots of animals to see, including the tropical birds, and a butterfly exhibit. Lots of tasty food options as well. If you are a hotel guest, you get one buffet meal included per person per day at this park. Noon to 1p seems to be a busy time for eating, so try to go before or after if you want to avoid a long wait. The gift shop is huge, definitely plan time to spend there if you're looking for gifts. At 6:00 p.m., most of the park shuts down and everyone starts to head to the open Auditorium for the evening performance. You won't want to miss it!

Absolutely a beautiful and joyful experience. There is no way to do everything in one day. We had the Plus ticket which included lockers, buffet choice from one of several restaurants and other plus access and activities. We got lucky with the perfect weather and a time when it wasn't overly busy. There is a huge parking area and parking is included. Everything is clearly marked and clean. When you present or get your new tickets the way into the park is clear and there are many employees ready to help you along the way with any questions. There are several colored paths you can choose to follow on the sidewalks as well as marked "road" signs. Stop and look at the large map posted to orient yourself and look at all the things you can see and do. There are several small shows, sites, displays, interactions to choose from. It's not possible to do everything in one day. You can also pay for add-on activities or purchase an upgraded ticket that includes added activities. We didn't and we still had time only to see maybe 1/3rd of this beautiful place. If you're interested, read about how this place got developed. It's fascinating. My advice is that you pick the paths and activities you want to accomplish roughly with leeway to stop here and there along the way when something catches your eye. One thing - always carry water. The place is huge and it's hot and you need to hydrate. You can buy bottled water and refill it at several marked stations throughout the park. I am posting some photos but honesty they hardly do this place justice. Yes, it's pricey but for the cleanliness, quality, safety, variety and beauty of this place we found it highly worth it and plan on returning.
