Xcaret is a Must Visit Destination for your Family Vacation
Thinking about an all-inclusive resort, but something that is family-friendly? Getting married and want to escape somewhere secluded and beautifully curated for your honeymoon? Or how about a girls getaway with your besties? Whatever the reason for your want to vacation, XCARET located in Riviera Maya, Mexico is a great choice - and trust me, I'm not just saying that! After spending an amazing weekend on property in partnership with Vacation Express, I have to share about all the amazing features and activities all throughout Xcaret's various resorts and parks.
What is Xcaret?
Xcaret is a multi-destination in one! There are over 50 attractions throughout the grounds and is a water park, theme, amusement, eco-archaelogocial and more in one. Located in the Mayan jungle, you can explore all that Mexico has to offer on a more intimate and adventurous level including gorgeous cenotes, underground rivers, and expansive views of the Caribbean Sea with Grupo Xcaret.
Xcaret celebrates Mexico's culture and rich history, a country known for its traditions, culture, and folklore. Combining all the things you love about a vacation into one destination isn't easy, but Xcaret knocks it out of the park with stellar service, food, activities, and accommodations. Xcaret is built all around the natural beauty of Mexico with gorgeous views and programs to explore the Caribbean Sea and surrounding jungles.

Since opening in 1990, Xcaret is one of the most famous destinations in the Cancun-Riviera Maya area, primarily because you can experience an eco-archaeological park that explores both the natural and cultural richness of Mexico at a handful of different parks:
Xcaret is a park by the sea where you can "relieve the history of Mexico through colorful traditions and shows, endless activities, and beautiful native flora and fauna."
Xel-Há is the "Natural Wonder of Mexico" and home to over 20 attractions. Snorkel next to hundreds of fish in an inlet of the Caribbean or scope the views from the Lighthouse.
Xplor is is the most visited zip-line park in the world!
Xoximilco welcomes its visitors along the most beautiful canals of Cancun with a traditional Mexican experience complete with music and food.
Xenses is an incredible park with 14 attractions and more than 50 fantastmic settings. This is a half-day park!
Tour Xenotes Oasis Maya is an exclusive experience to enjoy nature and visit 4 exclusive cenotes in the jungle.
When Hotel Xcaret opened, it was a groundbreaking day because the property truly stood out from others. After experiencing both Hotel Xcaret and Hotel Xcaret Arte for myself, I wholeheartedly agree that it is a great destination where you can do everything you want to do on a vacation all under the Grupo Xcaret umbrella. If you're wanting something more adventurous, all of the Xcaret Park options make it an extra exciting getaway. Even better because it is so easy to travel to Cancun these days.
Broaden your horizons and visit somewhere new! And what better way to do so than with an all-inclusive resort, a place where you don't have to worry about a thing while you're there? The only thing you'll need to stress about is what cocktail you want to drink by the pool 💁♀️
Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays this season.
