Xcaret Parks nears 50 million in attendance

Grupo Xcaret, the leader in sustainable and socially responsible tourism in the Mexican Caribbean, announced it plans to welcome its 50 millionth visitor in 2019. The brand’s nine parks and tours blend adventure, culture and nature-driven experiences and offers over more than 100 diverse attractions that promise an unparalleled vacation, each one carefully designed to highlight the very best of Mexico.

“We are proud to be considered the first and most important ecologically and socially sustainable tourism company in Mexico,” said Miguel Quintana Pali, CEO of Grupo Xcaret. “Our commitment to our country and our community throughout our 25 years of operation has proven that a different kind of experience is possible in the Cancun area, one that connects travelers to the spectacular and unique nature of our surroundings, and that will ultimately result in a better understanding of our heritage and culture,” he added.

Cancun has long been regarded as one of the top tourist destinations in the world. Not only is the city vastly popular, but it’s airport serves some of Mexico’s top tourist spots, including Tulum, Playa del Carmen and Cozumel. And while the Riviera Maya region is famous for its white sandy beaches and vibrant nightlife, Grupo Xcaret has been in business for over two decades, showcasing that there’s more to Cancun than what meets the eye. 

Whether travelers are seeking for thrilling adventures, culture-driven experience or a trip down Mexican history, Grupo Xcaret’s attractions and activities are suitable for all tastes and ages.
