Overall rating: (4 Reviews)

Expensive, but worth it. A great way to see Mexico and it's history Score: Recommended: YES from Ontario, Canada
Swimming in the underground river was fun. The beach area was also nice, and the Mexico spectacular show was entertaining and informative. It was also a great idea to have different spots where you can take pictures by scanning your bracelet. The only things that could be better are having more a la carte options for dining other than buffet and having staff at the lockers past 5:30 pm. Score: Recommended: YES from Orlando, Florida
Wonderful experience Score: Recommended: YES from Kingston, ON Canada
The swim at the enclosed beach is cool. I can see a group of small fish follow me. ... Score: Recommended: YES from Los Angeles, ca
