Mexico

Hotel Xcaret Mexico

Deep in the Mayan jungle, on the shores of the Caribbean Sea and inspired by the Mayan civilization, Hotel Xcaret Mexico was born using nature itself as the essential element to conserve and protect it.  I like to compare this to if Avatar’s Pandora had a luxury hotel, this is what it would look like.

 

Only fair to explain why this hotel is SO different from any other hotel in Mexico or the Caribbean.  Opened December 2017, it is  5 Star all inclusive resort dedicated to the regional history, art and entertainment where the jungle, caves and rivers are the main attraction. Unlimited access to the parks Xcaret, Xel-Ha, Xplor, Xplor Fuego, Xoximilco and Xenses, as well as tours to Xenotes and Xichen at no additional charge, some parks cost as much as $125.00 per person if not staying at Hotel Xcaret.

Mexico Information

While the U.S. State Department issued a Travel Warning last year, it is primarily devoted to the violence in communities at or near the U.S. border. The State Department does not explicitly say, do not travel to Mexico. The State Department aptly notes: “Millions of U.S. citizens safely visit Mexico each year. This includes tens of thousands who cross the border every day for study, tourism or business and at least one million U.S. citizens who live in Mexico. The Mexican government makes a considerable effort to protect U.S. citizens and other visitors to major tourist destinations.”The distance between the U.S./Mexico Border, where much of the violence takes place, and Cancun is over 1,400 miles. That is like the distance from Los Angeles to Dallas!

All travelers, no matter what country they visit, can take precautions to help ensure their safety and well-being. First and foremost: obey the law. If our clients are going to pack one thing, we’d strongly recommend it be common sense. No matter what our clients’ age or destination, they should always use good common sense when it comes to their personal safety, just as they would at home.To maximize safety and security while traveling in Mexico or any other international destination:

 

  • Follow your instincts and avoid any areas or situations that seem as though they could become dangerous.
     

  • Stay in the well-known tourist areas of the cities.
     

  • Know and respect the laws in the country you are visiting.
     

  • Visit only legitimate businesses and tourist areas and avoid areas where prostitution and drug dealing might occur.
     

  • Leave your itinerary with a friend or family member back home.
     

  • Check with your cell phone provider prior to departure to see if your phone is capable of roaming on GSM or 3G international networks.
     

  • Do not display expensive looking jewelry, large amounts of money or other valuable items.
     

  • Make every attempt to travel during daylight hours and stick to main roads.
     

  • Safety is our top priority for our clients.
     

Our business is founded on repeat customers. Therefore, we would never send anyone to an unsafe area! We provide the facts so our clients can make informed decisions about their travel plans. We closely monitor the U.S. Department of State Web site for travel alerts for all destinations, including those that are most popular with our clients. Should we become aware of an issue for a specific destination, we alert clients who may be planning to travel there so they can make and determine for themselves if they still wish to travel. We also work closely with respected hotels and resorts to remain informed of security precautions they’re taking to guard our clients’ safety.
