Has anyone tried to get to XCaret on their own from Calica lately? We're going on the Holiday next week, and it no longers offers an XCaret shore excursion. I have a toddler, so I need to be able to get there and back to the ship easily, which would have been possible with the old "bus every ten minutes" shuttle from the pier to XCaret. What is the taxi situation like? Are taxis available at XCaret at all times of the day, or just at peak times? Do you have to call them in advance to schedule a pickup at the park? Is there a private shuttle available at the pier even though the excursion is no longer offered?
I went to Xcaret last year on Fascination. We caught a cab right off the ship in Calica. It was $10 and a 15 minute cab ride from dock to there. You can buy tickets to get in right at the gate. No biggie. Yes. the cabs are available right at the gate as long as the park is open.
Life is too short to let the ship of your dreams sail without you.
