Q: I'M ON A CRUISE SHIP CAN I GO TO XCARET?
A: Yes.  Xcaret is a great cruise shore excursion.  You'll need to do the Xcaret Private Express though, as it is flexible to fit your schedule.

Q: WHICH IS BETTER, XCARET OR XEL-HA?
A: That totally depends on your viewpoint.  There are many people on both sides here.  Xcaret is bigger with more things to do, while Xel Ha has an all-inclusive package and is more laid back with better snorkeling.

Q: I'VE HEARD I HAVE TO USE BIODEGRADABLE SUNSCREEN AT XCARET?
A: That is true.  You will have to use only biodegradable sunblock that is oil free and chemical free.  Read more about biodegradable sunscreens to see what kinds are recommended for use at Xcaret.
