The Occidental at Xcaret Destination (formally Occidental Grand Xcaret) is one of the gems of Cancun. Located close to Xcaret eco-archaeological park and Playa del Carmen, it is one of our most popular resorts. We love the resort for its incredible size; five bar swimming pools, nine bars and eleven restaurants means that it never gets crowded and you can enjoy that relaxing experience that you deserve. A broad range of nightly entertainment and an excellent kids club there really is something for everyone here.
Another of our favourite features is the private beach – indulge in the views of the sublime coastline, work up a tan on the sun-drenched sand or just go for a swim. This is a holiday that will give you the opportunity to rediscover the joy of the pure and simple. We also love that it is virtually next door to Xcaret Park, which is well worth a visit for its breath-taking archaeological wonder. You don’t have to be an eco-tourist to marvel at the natural sights here – we made the most of snorkelling and bird watching.
Top Tip: You can enjoy unlimited access to Xcaret Park by pre-booking the Unlimited Xcaret Experience – incredible value for money.
