You can take a taxi or bus from MP & they will drop you off right at the highway entrance. You can tell the driver where you are going, but it's good to keep an eye out for the sign. You will do a short hike to the ticket booth. Here someone will give you a quick update on all that's available in the park. There's an all inclusive package that includes your food, drink, speed boats, horseback riding & what is included in the basic package. We took the basic package. I don't remember how much this was, $30-35/person. With this, you have use of the bikes, canoes, kayaks, snorkel gear & 2 non-alcoholic drink tickets.
Once you take another short hike, you will get to the bike area. Here you can get single or tandem bikes. You will ride to the next area which is a cenote so that you can snorkel your way to the ocean. There's a small hut where you can give a person your personal stuff. They will bag it up for you & send it to the beach. You will have a number on your wrist band to claim it. Also available are life jackets & snorkel gear. The cenote was COLD, but was so pleasant after being in the sun. It is clean, clear, fresh water. You can either take the plunge by diving in, slide or stairs. From this cenote you can snorkel down the river to the beach. Once you are close to the beach, you can tell where the fresh water meets the salt, it gets a little blurry looking & the water is a little warmer. On the beach there you can either lay out under the palapas, go canoeing down another cenote (one you can't go swimming in), kayak out in the ocean.
When we visited, the park was not that crowded which was great. The park has a restaurant, little bar, showers, lockers, bathrooms & outside showers. There are a couple places you can hike inside the park, I wasn't that impressed. It was hot & had lots of mosquitoes. Still, I really recommend coming here. If you are looking for a place to relax & don't need all the entertainment that the larger parks give you, come here. It's cheaper too!
