Grupo Xcaret history

In 1984, when starting to clear a piece of land in Riviera Maya to establish his residence, architect Miguel Quintana Pali discovered underground rivers and different cenotes. Seeing the spectacular natural beauty in this five-hectare lot, he got the idea to share it with others to appreciate it.

By partnering with brothers Oscar, Marcos, and Carlos Constandse, he sets off the creation of Xcaret park. Since its opening in December 1990, the park has been one of the essential attractions in the Mexican Caribbean. After more than 30 years, Grupo Xcaret is a leading company in sustainable and socially responsible tourism recreation.

All actions within the company and related to our business development are aligned for having a low impact on the environment where we operate. For this reason, Grupo Xcaret is a leader in sustainable tourism recreation.
