A lot of people go to Mexico for the warm weather and picture-perfect beaches. But there’s so much more than that to discover—and Hoteles Xcaret has created an All-Fun Inclusive™ concept that helps travelers experience it all.

In addition to airport-hotel-airport transportation* and round-trip Xcaret Xailing (ferry) services to Isla Mujeres, the All-Fun Inclusive™ package provides access to natural water parks, artistic workshop spaces, and gourmet restaurants. Combining sustainable tourism and generous hospitality, there’s no better way to find adventure and fall in love with Mexican culture.

Experience the Thrill of Adventure with Admission to Natural Water Parks

When you stay at Hotel Xcaret Arte, Hotel Xcaret México, or La Casa de La Playa, you can enjoy unlimited access (and transportation!) to all of Grupo Xcaret’s eco-parks in the Riviera Maya. These popular attractions allow travelers to snorkel among stingrays and sea turtles, explore ancient caves, soar through the air on ziplines, and more.

Grupo Xcaret Parks at a Glance

  • Xcaret, the first attraction of its kind, opened in 1990. Since then, it’s become known as one of the greatest water parks in Mexico, with more than 50 natural and cultural activities to enjoy.
  • Xel-Há (“where the water is born”) is the place to go for aquatic adventures. Here, you can swim across cenotes, float through a lazy river, and slide down a 30-meter-high Lookout Lighthouse.
