Groupo Xcaret has unveiled an ambitious plan to build 8 new hotels in the Mexican Caribbean over the next ten years. The expansion would add thousands of new rooms to the firm’s inventory as well as several new entertainment venues including theme and adventure parks. Grupo Xcaret already operates two award-winning properties in the Mexican Caribbean, and now wants to expand its highly-successful model.
Cancun and the Mexican Caribbean are experiencing a hotel boom as international travel picks up, and demand is projected to continue growing over the following years. Groupo Xcaret is the latest hotel firm to announce new properties in the Mexican Caribbean after it revealed plans to build 8 new hotels in the region.
With an investment of over 2 billion dollars, the massive expansion is expected to add over 3000 rooms to the group’s inventory across several popular resort areas including Cancun and Playa del Carmen. The firm also wants to build more adventure parks, and it currently operates 7 unique outdoor theme parks scattered around Cancun and the Riviera Maya.
Although Grupo Xcaret has unveiled a general expansion plan, it hasn’t disclosed the exact location or size of the new properties, which are still being planned. However, the new resorts are expected to largely resemble the firm’s three existing properties, with Mexican design, innovative experiences, and sustainability being three standout elements.
Xcaret already owns a number of award-winning hotels across the Mexican Caribbean. Known for its top-notch customer service and premium properties, Xcaret’s hotels are centered around its unique All-Fun Inclusive concept, giving guests unlimited access to its excellent range of parks and outdoor experiences.
The hotel group is one of the newest in the Mexican Caribbean, having opened its first hotel some five years ago in Playa del Carmen. With its existing properties showing excellent performance in terms of occupancy rates and customer satisfaction, the chain is looking to expand aggressively with openings planned for several popular resort destinations in the area.
In total, the company has plans for eight new hotels over a 10-year period, although 5 are expected to be built over the next few years, according to Francisco Guitérrez, Xcaret Group’s Executive Director. The firm already owns a total of 1863 suites across its three hotels, and the expansion is expected to push that number by several thousand.
The new hotels will be located relatively close to each other, easily accessible from Cancun International Airport. Playa del Carmen, Riviera Maya, and Cancun are rumored to house the new hotels, but no official announcements have been made regarding their exact whereabouts.
In addition to nearly tripling its availability of hotel rooms, several parks are also in the making as part of the firm’s huge investment package. Xcaret has said it wants to focus on providing its guests, as well as other visitors, with diverse entertainment and free time options.
Three hotels currently operate under the Xcaret brand, and a fourth one, set for opening sometime in 2025 in Riviera Maya is currently in final stages of the design phase. The company is promising hotels that are not only innovative in their design and features, but that reflect traditional elements of Mexican culture and nature.
Grupo Xcaret currently runs 7 parks around the Mexican Caribbean, which offer guests thrilling outdoor experiences from ziplining in Riviera Maya to rainforest exploration in Playa del Carme. Guests can currently book a vacation in two of Xcaret’s properties, Hotel Xcaret and Xcaret Arte, with both 5-star hotels offering around 900 rooms with average nightly fares ranging from $500 to $650. The firm is also finalizing the opening of its ultra-luxury Casa de la Playa property, which has 63 lavish suites costing an average of $1500 per night.
