Xcaret, the fun continues!
We had first heard about Xcaret when we went to a couchsurfer meeting in Mérida. One of the girls there had worked here for a time. She told us to go after 3 p.m., and pay a reduced entry fee, but still take in the evening show. We were told the same thing by a few people. Again, there is nothing like good local advise. We followed it and it was perfect.
Xcaret (www.xcaret.com) is an amazing eco park, Mayan cultural park, water park etc. You can swim with dolphins, visit the zoo, the butterfly house, and more. The crowning jewel however is the evening show. It is a stage production that tells the whole story of the history of Mexico, starting with the Mayan people. It was amazing. I hope the pics do it justice.
