My wife and I recently visited the Xcaret development project in the Yucatan Peninsula. It is part of the Mayan Riviera and the hotel is only three years old. I’m happy to report that we had a wonderful time! The hotel is expensive but all-inclusive, that means you not only get all the food and drink your body can take, but the amenities as well. The hotel is spectacular, I will be featuring several pictures of the installations on this blog for your reference. The amenities include a private protected beach, a visit to the world famous cenotes (natural sinkholes), a visit to XCaret park with over 200 acres of things to see, XelHa which is a private inlet where you can safely snorkel and view a variety of sea creatures, XPlor with a jeep trek which I don’t recommend, a zip-line which I haven’t tried, and 800 yards of a cavernous adventure (I recommend the one in Xcaret instead of this one). At XCaret park they have a show every evening except Sundays (due to the pandemic) which features a taste of Mexican folklore from a wide variety of states. Watch out for black scorpions in the seating area, they won’t kill you but the sting is very painful! Xochimilco which is a take on the original in Mexico City featuring food, drink, dancing, and mariachis. Xenses which will put your brain to the test. XPlor Fuego which was closed for Covid-19 when we were there. Always try to reserve in advance.

The water is cold, but invigorating! Said our tour guide. Really sweet person, I must say.
