How to get to Xcaret?

Actually, it’s pretty simple, especially if you’re staying in a hotel in Cancun. Xcaret is a 1 hour drive from Cancun, if you take the highway Cancun – Tulum / Mexico 307. Here are some travel options:

3. Take a cab

The cost of the cab from Cancun to Xcaret is around $1,400 Mexican pesos. HOWEVER, this price is for a one-way trip only, so it’s probably more convenient to rent a car or consider other options.
