    Hey all:). Jeff and I plan on doing an excursion consisting of zilplines, ATVs, swimming, etc. Has anyone ever done this and what are your thoughts? Thanks!

    We went to Xcaret once and it wasn’t for us. Too many people felt like we were being hearded around like sheep. We ended up leaving, got a taxi to come back poolside by lunch. I think it could’ve been fun if there were significantly less people.

    Xplor. It's a whole day excursion. We'll worth it.

    We are bringing the kids (16 yr old boys) down for the first time in Nov for a week, Xplor seems perfect.

    I'm going to be at the resort for 4 nights. Would those of you who have been here before say I'd be missing out on much if I spent a day at the Xplor park?

    We liked Xplor. Zip lines, ATVs, cenote swim. They even provided a small lunch. The only thing we were concerned was that our ATVs didn't have brakes. So, plan accordingly.thus was in 2015.

    If only at TTR for 4 days I would say save the Xplor excursion for when you come back for longer....and you will be back!

    Yeah, where a short trip you probably don't want to leave a full day. There is a nighttime Xplore park. So maybe you could get some of the day in, and then be back for the later part of the night too.

    we did the Xplor excursion once. The ziplines were a lot of fun. The lunch we very good. The ATV riding was a bust. But we own ATVs and live in the desert with unlimited trails and washes to ride so we are biased. They govern theirs way back so they are slow and you only ride one lap around a lame trail. There is one cenote which you paddle through on a kayak that part was ok. We did a tour once that went to 4 different cenote and we liked it a lot better. Each of the cenotes were different. Some you zip line in and swim, one you repel into and swim and one you walk in and kayak.
