First things first, there are two Hotel Xcaret's & yes, they are side by side. There is the Hotel Xcaret Mexico, which is a family-friendly all inclusive resort (click HERE to see the website). And there is Hotel Xcaret Arte, which is an adults only all inclusive resort (click HERE to see the website).
Now to answer your next question...
Is Hotel Xcaret Really All Inclusive? YES YES YES!!
When we were booking our trip to Mexico (I can book yours HERE), I had put in hours of research on multiple locations. And ultimately ended up doing the MOST research on Hotel Xcaret & trying to figure out as much info as possible... well here it all is!
This is actually the FIRST question that came to mind!
I mean honestly, how many all inclusive resorts have you been to and there were a few things that should have obviously been included but weren't...
...like that glass of wine you wanted, or those comfy looking cabanas sitting on the beach, or maybe even a parking spot!!
Anyway, here is a list of the major items (in my mind), that I think most people want to know, that are included with your stay at both Hotel Xcaret Mexico & Hotel Xcaret Arte!!
12 restaurants at Hotel Xcaret Mexico (HA & Xpiral restaurants are an additional cost), 9 restaurants at Hotel Xcaret Arte
Yes, that means alcohol too! Oh, I should mention, if you are a wine drinker & like the 'higher' end wine, there is a additional charge.
CLICK HERE to get a full accurate description of each park & tour. There are activities in each park that will be an additional charge (swimming with dolphons, etc). If you download the app 'XCARET PARK' on your phone, it will tell you which activity is an additional cost!
They provide round-trip transportation to and from both resorts to the airport (large bus) & they provide round-trip transportation to and from both resorts to all the parks & tours (some busses, some smaller sprinter vans). If you don't want to ride a bus from the airport & looking for private transfers, I would suggest booking it BEFORE you get to the airport (check rates HERE). We have booked multiple private transfers in Mexico, and honestly, THIS IS THE ONLY WAY WE GET TO OUR RESORTS!
IF YOU HAVE TO WAIT AT THE CANCUN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT for a transfer, they have a free lounge for Hotel Xcaret guests only, located in terminal 4. On an added side note, if you are flying from the US, most US flights land at terminal 3 (FYI)
If you rent a car, they offer both free parking & paid valet parking! I can't begin to tell you how frustrating it is when a resort charges you an additional fee to utilize a parking spot on the same property that you already booked a room with! Big thumbs up to Hotel Xcaret for giving FREE parking spots!!!
Whether you're interested in a Cruise, guided tour, group trip, independent international travel or just a weekend get-away, and even that bucket list adventure... we can assist you with that!

**THIS IS BASED ON 10 DAYS IN MEXICO**
Trust us, the higher coverage, the better... especially in Cancun!!
Sun Bum has the BEST smell, does NOT give you that 'burning' sensation, is water-resistant up to 80 minutes, and most importantly, OCEAN & REEF FRIENDLY! Before leaving Cancun, we noticed a deeper tan with the higher SPF coverage vs the lower!
Not sure if it's just a me thing, but somehow, something ALWAYS happens to the ONE pair of sunglasses that I bring... and then I end up buying a pair that I don't really like that much... tell me I'm not alone here that this happens too?! Don't let your accessories make your vacation to Cancun, a negative one!
Call me a germaphobe, but the idea of utilizing a snorkel set from the resort or a tour, that multiple other people have used... nah, I'm good! This one can get tight enough for my small head and larger enough for our son's (bigger) head & of course these water fins are the perfect size for your carry-on!
When you get to Cancun, exploring can be fun, but be sure to take your 'small' essentials with you in a small backpack of some sort! And if you are going ANYWHERE there will be water, take a dry bag or dry-pack backpack instead! There is nothing worse than wanting to take your cell phone, other electronics, & a pair of clothes & try to keep them dry!!
Do NOT leave home without this! Yes, Cancun will have chapstick, but they may not have SPF specifically. The sun gets hot and since most of the time you will be either in the sun or salty ocean, you will want to keep your lips from getting fried and dried out! Once again Sun Bum SPF 30 is one of our favorites!
We each only brought 4 of these guys on this Cancun trip! Living in Florida, we are out on the ocean & beach as much a possible and because of that, we now incorporate these SPF/UPF Shirts every vacation and beach trip that we go on. Nate & Blake's SPF preference (men's), and my SPF preference (woman's)
I know this sounds like an odd one, but these were the BEST random items that we brought with us. You never know what to expect when you are ready to eat & drink in a different country! These charcoal pills & these Alka Seltzer EXTRA STRENGTH pills were a MASSIVE lifesaver... especially on the day, I decided to over-indulge in the Tequila. Oh, and throwing in a Pedialite will save your life too!
I can't tell you how many times this portable solar charger has been a HUGE lifesaver, especially because we are NOT always conveniently sitting next to an electrical outlet.
'I want to stay inside for an hour to charge my phone, while on vacation in Cancun'... SAID NO ONE EVER!
And this one is pretty rugged, so if it gets a little wet or dusty because you are out exploring, no big deal!
