Where is Hotel Xcaret Mexico

Hotel Xcaret Mexico is located right in the heart of Riviera Maya, south of Playa del Carmen town. Arriving here from Cancun International Airport will take you exactly one hour. According to the room category you book, a shared or private transfer is included so just get off the plane, get your bags and start your vacay!

Famous Xcaret, Xplor, and Xenses adventure parks are located within the same complex, so it would take you literally minutes to visit any of those parks from your room.

Playa del Carmen, Tulum, and many incredible locations are within reach. The benefits of being in the center of the action!

From the very moment you arrive at the complex, you understand this is a place like no other. The design of the resort, the warmth of the staff, everything is beautiful and worth a thousand pics. Images just won’t make justice to this place, this is something you have to experience to believe it!

Pros and cons of the Hotel Xcaret Mexico


  • One of the incredible benefits of staying at Hotel Xcaret Mexico is that entrance to Xcaret Parks is included, with transportation to and from the hotel! Since most of them are so close together, you can go back and forth in a day if you want to.
  • They created a shoreline with rock walls, waterfalls, and lots of vegetation, so the beach is literally private and you get no seaweed. They did it this way to preserve wildlife and leave nature alone to do its own thing.
  • All the wedding venues are incredibly beautiful as are. The beaches, the jungle, the views… you don’t really need to spend a fortune on decor, save it for the honeymoon!
  • The whole experience is just A+.


  • Maybe one of the bad things (if you can say that) about this place is the feeling you’ll get of missing out on something. There’s just not enough time to visit all the parks, enjoy the hotel, dine around and see it all. You’ll just have to keep coming back!
  • Maybe some guests may find challenging to walk back and forth between the amenities and the rooms since the hotel is huge and spread out. Also, there are no golf carts.
  • And the real bad thing. LEAVING. We’ve been there a few times and it always breaks our hearts saying goodbye!

Rooms and Sections

The 900 suites are scattered in five buildings called “Casas” or ”Houses”, each representing one universal element the Mayan culture was based on. So that would be spiral, wind, water, earth, and fire. Each with its own personality.

All suites incorporate natural and local elements and display handmade art pieces made by Mexican artists from all around Mexico. It’s like your own showroom! Plus, there are different pieces in each room so that makes them all unique.

Hotel room with lots of wood and pink accents

A truly remarkable feature is the ”all view suite” concept. No matter where you are in the room, you will always enjoy the river, beach, or forest view according to the room category you booked. Even while you are taking a shower!

If a romantic getaway is what you are going for, Fuego and Agua buildings are adult-only areas. Rooms are the same, just no kids.

The Beach

The beach here is comprised of several man-made inlets that offer private nooks, and secluded areas so you always feel like you are in your very own personal paradise. Find umbrellas, lounge chairs, and many corners to sunbathe and enjoy your time under the sun.

Around the whole resort, surrounding the suite buildings, you’ll see the rivers. Here you can also swim, kayak, or just dip into the fresh waters. And look how beautiful they are!

River in the middle of high stone walls with lots of vegetation

There is however an entrance to the beach, but you won’t see day beds or lounge chairs, instead, there is lots of vegetation since they try to leave the area as untouched as possible to prevent wildlife from being disturbed.

Food & Drinks

Hotel Xcaret knows how important culinary experiences are when you travel. They have created a unique combination of flavors in settings that will surely make a memory out of any meal!

During your visits to the restaurants, you will clearly see a homage to Mexican culinary heritage with the use of ancestral ingredients. 10 talented chefs, including Michelin star winners: Carlos Gaytan and Paco Mendez, and sommelier Sandra Fernandez are in charge of the gastronomic offer, so I guess we could say the food will be more than good, right?

To immerse yourself completely in true Mexican food, you can find several carts with typical street food, exactly like the one you’ll find in any small town or big city around Mexico. So your taco cravings are covered, too!

For the health and fitness enthusiasts, BIO is a restaurant with a whole plant-based menu located inside caves, with views of the rivers. Have you ever had a salad inside a cave? I know I haven’t!

Guests also have the opportunity to enjoy Italian-Mexican specialties, a steakhouse buffet, a grill, traditional and modern Asian cuisine, and for an extra fee, you can get access to a fine dining tasting menu restaurant ”HA”, for those seeking the very best of the best.

Activities, Sports & Kids Club

If you and the kids need a break from the parks, you can always enjoy some downtime at the kiddie pool and the kids club, only to recharge your energies to continue with the adventures!

”Cantina los Faroles” translates as ”Lanterns Cantina”. Well, no need to explain the name right? This can be considered as the playground for grown-ups. Picture yourself sipping a delicious Tequila, eating some nachos, and singing along with the mariachi until after hours.

If a show is what you are looking for, ”Teatro del Rio” or ”River Theatre” is an open-air theatre where they offer a delicious tasting menu while artists play Mexican music, and perform traditional dances.

Exchange Privileges

Although Hotel Xcaret Arte and hotel Casa de la Playa are located next door, you can’t really visit them. But why would you? You will be so busy going to the parks and enjoying your own resort!

What makes this resort different from other all-inclusive resorts

If you put together all the best Mexico has to offer in regards to music, food, and the warmth of the people at mind-blowing architecture and an impressive beach, the result would be Hotel Xcaret Mexico.

  1. My son is going to get married, but he’s not sure how to choose a venue. It makes sense that an all inclusive wedding would be really beneficial for him. That seems like a good way to ensure that he doesn’t have to plan as much.
