@lexmek27:  I went to X-Caret and LOVED it.  From what I hear they are very similar, so maybe just try X-Caret for something different?

FI and I are also doing Riviera Maya for our honeymoon (where are you guys staying? I’m SO EXCITED) but since I’ve done X-Caret I’m going to suggest to him that we do Xel-Ha.

@lexmek27:  For me Tulum is the big draw to Xel-Ha.  I personally didn’t do any other tours while I was there besides X-Caret, but my brother and dad went and did ziplining and the cenotes and I regretted not doing it when they came back with all their awesome stories!  I doubt I’ll get my fiance to zipline, but I’m really hoping to get to the cenotes this time.  And maybe swim with the sea turtles somewhere – last time in X-Caret I happened to get close to one while snorkeling and it was absolutely amazing!

We also went into Playa del Carmen for a day which was a lot of fun, but from what I’m seeing a lot has changed in that town since I was there last, and for the better.  Looks like there’s a lot more dining and shopping options than there were a few years ago.

I think you’re going to love Secrets Capri!  A co-worker of mine was there on his honeymoon last year and had nothing but rave reviews.  We booked Secrets Maroma based on how highly he recommended the Secrets chain in general.

@lexmek27:  Both are similar, however Xcaret has more stuff as it is bigger and the night show is divine.  Xel-ha also has a night show but is not as spectacular.  There is also a third one called Xplore where you can do ziplining and other more advente kind of activities.  I believe (but Im not sure) that there is like a three day pass that includes the 3 parks.  

However, as loveinthelibrary said, Xel-ha has the plus of Tulum, which is my absolute favorite place in Mexico (and I’m mexican) so If I only had one day, I would definetly pick Xel-ha-Tulum, over the others.  

Hope you have a blast!!
