We did the dune buggy to Xcambo Ruins and Beach resort. Buggy ride was very good. Beach resort was okay.

We did the Fly High ZipLine and the experience was great. Only regret is not taking cameras on the zipline to take pictures. The fly high zipline team did take good pictures and gave them on a DVD for the family. We also did the the beach resort. The water was awesome. Snorkeling was fun with lots of fishes close to the beach. Would have been nice if we had little bit more time to spend in the water.

Pros: Activities for kids and the shows

Cons: Paying individually for pictures. Would have been nice to have a bundle purchase on a DVD for the family.

Recommends Carnival Ecstasy? Yes!
