Xcaret- The Hard-To-Find Details -part three

Just one half hour north of Posada Yum Kin Hotel in Tulum, Mexico lies the eco-friendly Theme Park of Xcaret. In the last few weeks, we’ve discussed many of the activities and events available at Xcaret. Plus, we’ve featured posts that reviewed Xcaret’s historic and cultural aspects, and their evening performance, Mexico Espectacular!. Today, let’s talk about what you can expect to pay. I know, we all hate to plan this part out, but trust me, setting the kids expectations, and your own, ahead of time will ultimately lead to a better vacation.
