The beach

The beach of Xcaret is the ideal refuge to relax. Lay down under the shade of the palapas, and admire the scenery of the inlet facing the Caribbean sea. Walk on white sand, immerse yourself in calm waters, and let yourself be pampered by our beach bar service.

Natural pools

These natural pools are constantly filled with seawater by the action of the waves. They are unique places for swimming, having fun, and even watching fish. Ride a slide, cross from one side of the pool to the other by two ropes suspended over the water to feel like in a natural water park, or enjoy the view of the Caribbean.
