Without a doubt, one of the most popular destinations in the Mexican Caribbean is Xcaret, famous for the Xcaret México Espectacular show, its majestic underground rivers, and its varied Mexican cuisine.
Its shows, optional activities, beaches, and coves undoubtedly make it a must-see for your next vacation. But first, where is Xcaret park located? This incredible place has a privileged location between Xplor Park, Xenses Park, Hotel Xcaret México, and just a few minutes from downtown Playa del Carmen in Riviera Maya, Mexico.
These are just some of the reasons why this Mexican paradise has become the favorite destination of many travelers. If you come to visit Quintana Roo and want to go to Xcaret, here you’ll find ways to get there from Cancun, Playa del Carmen or Tulum.
In the Yucatán Peninsula, there is a bus line called ADO or Autobuses de Oriente, which provides its services to practically any destination in the Mexican Caribbean, including Xcaret park. Direct transportation to the park is available from any of the three cities I mentioned above.
You can purchase your tickets through the website, mobile application, or directly at the ticket office. If you buy your tickets in advance, you can get discounts.
When purchasing any of the admissions offered by Xcaret park, you can add your transportation from your hotel. This is a roundtrip service, just make sure your hotel is on the pick-up list or check the closest pickup point.
Whether you rent it, be it your own or from a friend, a car can help you get to this paradise.
If you are in Cancun, you must go to the bus terminal located on Tulum Avenue. It is a well-known point of the city, and you can get there by taxi or public transport.
If you are in Playa del Carmen, you must get to the ADO bus terminal located on Fifth Avenue, which is also known as the Tourist Terminal. It is very close to the dock from where the ferries departures to Cozumel Island.
From Tulum, you also must locate the ADO bus terminal, which is smaller compared to the previous two stations and is on the main avenue.
With this option, you only need to get up early, have a rich breakfast and go down to your lobby to wait for one of our operators to pick you up on the official Xcaret transportation.
In case your hotel is not on the pickup list, we have options to pick you up at the point closest to your hotel.
Besides, Grupo Xcaret guarantees that your trip will be safe since the 360° Xafety protocol is applied in all buses. Some of these actions include cleaning the buses on each of the routes, taking the temperature, the application of antibacterial gel and the use of a mask as requirements before you get in.
Open your favorite maps application: Google Maps, Here We Go by Nokia, Maps.Me or Waze and place Xcaret in the search bar to find the ideal route to the park.
If you are in Cancun or Playa del Carmen, you only need to take the road to Tulum. In the case of Cancun, the trip to Xcaret takes 90 minutes. From Playa del Carmen, you will arrive in 20 minutes.
If you are in Tulum, you must take the federal highway towards Playa del Carmen and you will be in Xcaret in 50 minutes.
Being close to Playa del Carmen, you will have another option to get to Xcaret: taxi. You can find taxis near the ADO bus terminal on Fifth Avenue.
