Grupo Xcaret spends evening sharing love of Mayan culture and efforts in sustainability

Toronto — Grupo Xcaret’s dinner event at Sassafraz restaurant in Toronto last night showcased for the industry all of the hotel company’s latest sustainable tourism initiatives, plus its many resort, tour and park offerings.

Grupo Xcaret, starting with Xcaret Park, was created 30 years ago by two Mexican families with the intention of exhibiting the very best of Mexican culture and providing sustainability through a great respect for the environment. The group now has seven parks, three luxury hotels, and tours to many sites including the Chichen Itza Temple and different cenotes. Over four million travellers visit its parks annually.

The three all-inclusive, luxury hotels comprising Hoteles Xcaret are Hotel Xcaret Mexico, Hotel Xcaret Arte, and La Casa de la Playa. Hotel Xcaret Arte, an exclusive experience with 900 suites, is a 16+ adults-only property and features the highest 360-degree view in the Mayan Riviera, which is very popular for Catholic weddings. There’s “a story behind every detail that will make you feel like you’re actually in Mexico,” explained Dinorah Tobon Hampshire, Director of Sales TTOO USA & Canada, Hoteles Xcaret. Xcaret Arte is the first all-inclusive in the world with dining by a Michelin-starred chef.

Grupo Xcaret will be introducing a new product to its lineup: Xcaret Sailing

La Casa de la Playa, which opened in December 2021, is Grupo Xcaret’s first boutique property. It has 63 suites in nine categories, all facing the ocean and all with their own pool. It’s supposed to feel more like a beach house than a hotel – maybe that’s why the reception area has been dubbed ‘the living room.’ Additional highlights from the suites include volcanic stone bathtubs, double rain showers, and a jellyfish habitat aquarium. There are four restaurants on the property, all à la carte and part of the all-inclusive.

Grupo Xcaret will be introducing a new product to its lineup: Xcaret Sailing. It will have a ferry running from Cancun to Isla Mujeres every hour on the hour for tourists to self-explore. Next year, catamaran voyages will be introduced that offer a more curated experience and snorkelling.

Adventure seekers need look no further than Grupo Xcaret’s adventure parks. Thrill-inducing activities abound with opportunities for ziplining, underground cave swimming, jet boat rides and parasailing, to name a few.

Grupo Xcaret aims to offer the best in sustainability, wellness, culinary, adventure and arts and culture in Riviera Maya. To discover more about Grupo Xcaret’s offerings, visit Xcaret.com.
