We followed the current and snorkeled along the natural underground river with lifejackets and flippers on. There weren''t very many fish to be seen, but the cave-like atmosphere had a certain level of interest -- an underwater camera with a flash is recommened here.
We also walked about the park and looked at many parrots and other wildlife; there were quite a few iguanas sunning themselves.
As with all amusement parks, the meals were a bit pricey -- but they were VERY good and didn''t have have that typical fast food/touristy feel.
Our evening was rounded off with watching a traditional Mayan ball game (the one where they use their hips to get a ball through a tiny hole) -- fortunately, the old tradition of sacrificing the losing team wasn''t performed.
All in all, we had a great day. We left at closing time and agreed that it had been well worth the cost.

There is a mock Mayan ball game - the winner of the game was sacrificed in Mayan culture, considering it an honor to be sacrificed for their god.
If you stay until night, there is a show that features Mexican dances and music - excellent!!!!! To get to it you are lead through a cave structure - very spooky, very cool. It's worth it to stay.
