Wet n Wild Cancun

The Wet'n Wild Waterpark in Cancun is supposedly the best waterpark in Latin America, but visitors should not expect world-class facilities and tourists from the US will be disappointed if they compare the park to American equivalents. It is a simple waterpark, in a lovely location, which is seldom crowded, and could provide a few fun hours for families travelling with kids. The park works in conjunction with a splendid dolphinarium which is a very popular attraction in Cancun; visitors can watch the dolphins in action at dolphin shows and arrange to swim with them, which is an incredible experience by all accounts. Many resorts in Cancun offer joint packages to the waterpark and dolphinarium. Attractions at the waterpark include a wave pool, a lazy river, a kiddies pool, bumper boats, and four or five waterslides including the Twister, the Kamikaze and the Bubble Space Bowl. There are also plenty of beach loungers for those who just want to relax in the sun. Tickets are quite pricey considering the size of the park but the entry cost includes unlimited beverages, ice-cream, snacks and meals. There are small extra charges for things like tubes, towels, lockers and photographs taken by the park. There are lifeguards on duty and medical attention on standby.
