In 1984, architect Miguel Quintana Pali acquired 5 hectares of land in Riviera Maya to build his residence. However, when he began to clean the land, he discovered cenotes and underground rivers. He then decided to create a park so that everyone could have access to the natural beauties of the region.

Together with brothers Oscar, Marcos and Carlos Constandse, Quintana Pali was able to make this idea a reality, calling it Xcaret. Since its opening in December 1990, it has been recognized as one of the most famous attractions in the Cancun-Riviera Maya tourist destination.

And that’s how the story of a unique organization in sustainable tourist recreation began: Grupo Xcaret.

  • It is the most important sustainable tourist recreation model in Mexico.
