If you can dream it, I can plan it.

Hotel Xcaret Arte – for experience seekers

I was challenged to find a resort for a couple who wanted to be able to have fun, relax and have an ‘experience’ on their vacation.  After they reviewed the resorts I selected, it came down to:

  • the reviews
  • the variety of quality experiences being offered
  • the gorgeous property
  • excellent food and
  • a place they could connect….

They chose Hotel Xcaret Arte in Cancun/Riviera Maya, Mexico!


Hotel Description

Discover an artisan Mexico, that has captured through generations its history and culture in looms, paintings, clay pieces and symphonies, creating a unique marvel just in front of the Caribbean Sea that fusions a natural and artistic Mexico. Hotel Xcaret Arte opened its doors on July 1, 2021. Its 900 suites pay tribute to great Mexican artists, and its unique concept will transform the hotel industry. Come and live art from its inception. We are Mexico, we are art.
