Too often lumped in with North America, Mexico is a country that stands out on its own.

Anyone got any advice on whether or not it's worth a trip to Xcaret? I'm getting conflicting information - sometimes it sounds wonderful, sometimes like a tacky Disneyland. I'll be in Yucatan for 2 or 3 weeks so won't be going out of my way to get there.

Xcaret and Xel-ha both suck. Imagine places where fat humanoids resembling badly-stuffed dumplings poured into horrible polyester Hawaiian shirts harass captive "wildlife", and you'll come close to the horror.

They are among the worst of the Quintana Roo coast, and there's a lot of tacky plastic awfulness on said coast. (There are also amazing things to see too.)

As a general rule of thumb, don't buy tickets for anything advertised as a natural wonder, or touted loudly and ubiquitously in English. The farther you get from Cancun, the less obnoxiousness there is.

I agree with Felix. Just awful.
