In Hoteles Xcaret we know that eating is travelling, and that memories also immortalize the palate. We gathered a group of talented chefs to offer premium culinary experiences that make our hotels, real gastronomic destinations.
Hotel Xcaret Mexico
The homage to our country cannot be completed without talking about its gastronomy. Its millennial ingredients fed Mexico’s cultural identity and gave the world products that nowadays are an important part of other countries’ history. The culinary journey of Hotel Xcaret México embellishes the Mexican gastronomy, declared as Intangible Cultural Heritage by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), and hugs other flavors of the world to give you a memorable sensory experience.
