Top 5 Reasons Why You Need to Visit XCARET

XCARET is probably one of my family’s favorite destinations, mostly because there’s something for every one!

Below you will find the top 5 reasons why you need to visit as well as some pretty amazing discounts you don’t want to miss!

I know travel is restricted at this time in certain places, but I did not want to pass up the chance to share Xcaret with you specially since some of the deals they’re running right now can be used to book a vacation for up to 1 year from now!

What is Xcaret?

Xcaret is heaven on earth conveniently located in Playa del Carmen! Unique in every sense when it comes to the service they provide.

You have 2 options when visiting Xcaret:

  1. Book and stay at Hotel Xcaret and it automatically includes unlimited access to all of their 8 parks (This is the option I highly recommend because everything is taken care of for you the minute you arrive) 
  2. You can also stay at a different hotel and instead purchase individual day passes to selected parks. 



Whether your family includes little ones or all adults, there is something for every one. Seriously. The activities and amenities at Xcaret are extraordinary!

This last year when we were there, my dad came along with us. While my husband, sisters, mom, and I loved visiting all the parks, my dad wanted to relax more and take it easy, therefore he stayed back at the hotel while we went off to the parks. That being said, he loved it! He was able to stay back and just take it easy, but still enjoyed all the on site fun and services while being pampered. 

Visiting each park was a such an adventure each day! I plan on writing a separate post on each park in the near future so I can really go into detail to really spotlight what each park has to offer so stay tuned for that!


The minute you arrive to the hotel you will be blown away by the impressive accommodations! The staff is incredible and treat you just like family.

We have stayed at several hotels, even some abroad, but Hotel Xcaret definitely is in the top 3 for us!

Nature, culture, art, and entertainment are all celebrated in this hotel everywhere you look. The variety of restaurants on site, infinity pools, bars, room service, river activities, and all the other amenities are top notch!

Like I mentioned before, when you book your stay at Hotel Xcaret, you automatically get unlimited access to all of their parks, so there is no need to worry about anything else but to just have fun!     


All Inclusive Fun

Not having to worry about paying for individual admissions to the parks is definitely a huge plus! If you are on vacation, the last thing you want is to be scrambling around reserving tickets and stressing about the cost. Having access to all parks is also wonderful since you have the freedom to explore all or some of them as many times as you want. Again, that’s one of the many reasons why I love booking with Hotel Xcaret. 

On the other hand, there are situations when you have already booked  your stay at a different hotel, but you still want to visit the parks. That’s ok! Make sure to research which parks and tours interest you the most and book individually.

Combine the best tours and parks by Xcaret.

Attention to Detail

Xcaret has gone out of their way to think of every single detail their guests may want and need! They definitely exceed your expectations by taking care of everything and letting you just enjoy your vacation. 

If you booked with the hotel, transportation to and from the airport is taken care of as well as transportation from the hotel to the parks, so you have nothing to worry about when it comes to your daily adventures!

Once at the hotel and their parks, their hospitality and customer service is on point!

Uniqueness and Culture

The uniqueness and immersion into the culture is also one of my favorite reasons why I love Xcaret. Yes you are on vacation, but the way your mind, heart, and soul are stimulated is honestly amazing!

      They surely will! When you do go, they have these cool cameras all over Xcaret and the park where you just scan your bracelet and it takes your picture! Super fun and perfect to capture the fun moments with the kids! My littles love looking back at all of our photos from our trip.
