Throughout the resort there are 11 restaurants, and while cuisine from around the world is available, unsurprisingly it’s the Mexican menus that are the most exciting. Three dedicated restaurants provide regionally-inspired dishes so you can enjoy the very best local flavours. We particulary love that you don’t have to think about getting back to the resort for lunch if you’re at one of the parks or on an excursion organised through Grupo Xcaret as the majority of meals, as well as selected drinks are included.
