When I think of Hotel Xcaret México, I automatically th ink of family vacations thanks to all the parks and activities to which it gives you access, as well as its delicious food, which combines traditional Mexican recipes with the best of international gastronomy. Without a doubt, it is a paradise that we want to share with our loved ones. Everyone, from children to adults, will find something that they will surely want to repeat year after year.
When we say “everyone” … We mean even the little ones!
For some, finding something to entertain them for more than half an hour seems almost impossible. However, within the hotel you will find endless activities and spaces that the children of the family will love. Keep on reading and get to know them all so you know where to take them on your next visit.
Xiquillos Kids Club
A site designed especially for children with activities planned for the whole day. Here, the little ones can enjoy crafts, patio and water games, and even movie screenings. They will be sharing fun moments in the company of other children, which means that they will even be able to make new friends.
What you should know if you want to take your little ones to the Xiquillos Kids Club:
Children from 4 years old and over can stay without parental supervision (parents are only asked not to leave the hotel during that time).
It opens from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.
If your children are a little older, Xiipal is an excellent option where the whole family can have a good time. It is a shared space with pool tables, ice hockey, and even ping pong tables.
What you should consider if you want to visit Xiipal with your kids:
Children under 13 need to be accompanied.
Adults are not allowed to enter with alcoholic beverages.
Pools at Hotel Xcaret México
The hotel has numerous pools of different shapes and depths in which children can swim. Even if they still don't know how to do it, they can enjoy them using the life jackets that the hotel provides.
The octopus pool in particular is the favorite among families, as it has waterslides, a climbing area, and a wading pool where everyone can have an incredible time without worries.
Useful information about the pools at Hotel Xcaret México:
All of them provide access from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m.
Some of them even have nearby bars for the enjoyment of adults.
Visiting the beach during your visit to Riviera Maya is obviously a must. However, in addition to being able to admire the impressive Caribbean Sea, Hotel Xcaret México has a unique beach area in the destination that creates small coves that look like natural pools without waves.
These create the perfect space for children to play in the sand and swim in shallow areas. In addition, the beach area puts small life jackets at your disposal and is supervised by lifeguards, so you can relax and take care of your children while you rest with your favorite drink in hand.
The surprises are not over yet! Here you will also find activities such as kayaking and paddle that you can share with your children. Children under 13 years of age can also enjoy them as long as they are accompanied by an adult.
Considerations to enjoy paddle and kayak:
Book these activities in advance, since they are among the favorites of visitors, the waiting time can be a bit long.
Activities are available from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The use of a life jacket is mandatory for all ages.
Another thing that children love about the hotel is its delicious food. Although it’s true that the little ones are not great foodies, we know that a full belly means a happy heart. That is why we have a wide variety of menus where you will find something for all ages and tastes.
To begin with, throughout the hotel you will find carts that offer different types of snacks with international options such as ice cream and hamburgers, as well as delicious Mexican options such as esquites, cochinita sandwiches, and even marquesitas.
In addition, in all restaurants you will find dishes designed for the little ones in the family. In particular, the restaurant near the octopus pool: Chibalí. Its menu is more international, so there will surely be more than one well-known dish that is already their favorite. It has a candy and ice cream bar where they can have whatever they want.
It opens at 7 a.m. with a delicious breakfast buffet for the early birds, and later, an à la carte menu for lunch and dinner, closing until 11 p.m. for the night owls.
In general, restaurants that offer a buffet will be ideal for children, since they have a wide variety of dishes. Both Trajinera and Mercado de la Merced will have options that you’ll surely love, and in the case of the latter, the dessert bar is also great.
Fun Xelfie spots
The entire hotel is surrounded by different Xelfie spots with beautiful scenarios. To activate them just pass your bracelet through the scanner and get creative when it comes to posing. There is no photo limit, so share a fun time with your kids while getting beautiful memories to take back home.

To guarantee the safety of children, they must always wear a life jacket, as well as follow the instructions of the guides.
If after you visit the Children's World, you notice that your little ones still have a lot of energy, don't forget the rest of the family activities you can enjoy in the park. The ones most attracting children's attention are the Coral Reef Aquarium, the Aviary, and the Butterfly Pavilion.
