Travel Insurance

**If you have any questions about travel insurance, please give Travel Insured a call at 800-243-3174. We (Yellow Umbrella Events) are not a licensed insurance company and cannot legally answer any insurance-related questions.**
FYI, not purchasing travel insurance could result in the loss of your travel cost and/or require more money to correct the situation. Without insurance, there may be no way to recoup any losses, costs, or expenses incurred. The price of travel insurance IS NOT included in the price of the room selections and is non-refundable once purchased.
Having travel insurance is definitely important and we recommend it for everyone. We personally buy it for our trips. However, the option to purchase travel insurance is solely up to you and you may purchase it through any insurance company.
This website (Travel Insured) offers a very comprehensive policy called the “Worldwide Trip Protector” plan with optional add-ons like CFAR (Cancel For Any Reason), Optional Bed Rest which helps cover onsite quarantine expenses, and other add-on options. Travel Insured is the insurance company we personally use and suggest to others but you are welcome to purchase travel insurance through any entity that you choose.
If you want the CFAR (Cancel for Any Reason) benefit you will have to add it to the policy and you must purchase the insurance no later than 21 days from the day you make your initial payment.
When you click on the link you will need to answer a few questions about your trip and then you’ll be redirected to a page with the policy information and pricing.
The basic “Worldwide Trip Protector” plan, which does not include the CFAR or Optional Bed Rest options, can be purchased at any time, including after 21 days from the time you paid your initial payment but it will not cover the Pre-Existing Condition Exclusion Waiver or the Bankruptcy/Default of an airline, cruise line, tour operator or other travel providers. However, you can still cancel and potentially get up to a 100% refund as long as it’s a covered reason.
We strongly suggest that you call and verify what the policy covers if you have any questions. You can reach an insurance agent at 800-243-3174.

Included Ground Transportation

Included in your reservation is Hotel Xcaret’s shuttle transportation from the Cancun (CUN) Airport to Hotel Xcaret and back to the Cancun (CUN) airport.
*Gratuities are not included*
Transportation operates every 30 minutes starting at 5:45 a.m. through 9:00 p.m. and every 1 hour from 9:45 p.m. through 5:45 a.m.
For Arrivals
After clearing customs and collecting your luggage, proceed outside the airport and look for the resort’s transportation staff who will be holding a sign that says “Hoteles Xcaret” (see pictures below).
You must exit the arrival hall bypassing all representatives inside the airport trying to get your attention. These representatives are there to sell time-share and may be a representative for your hotel, but are not your transportation provider.
For Departures
Please see the Concierge desk at least one day before departure to register for your transfer back to the airport.
IMPORTANT:
  • Hotel Xcaret’s included shuttle transportation ONLY offers service from the Cancun (CUN) Airport to Hotel Xcaret and back to the Cancun (CUN) airport.
  • This transportation is a complimentary service that is included in your reservation rate and has no cash value, so there are no reductions in price or refunds if the transportation is not used.
  • The shuttle WILL NOT drop you off or pick you up at any other location other than Hotel Xcaret Mexico/Arte and the Cancun Airport.
  • Officially, shuttle transportation services are only provided for your actual check-in and check-out dates. If you arrive in the area any date earlier than your check-in date or depart any day later than your check-out date you will need to arrange your own transportation to wherever you are going and to/from Hotel Xcaret on your actual check-in/check-out dates.
Some guests who arrived earlier than their official check-in date have found success in receiving the included transportation by returning to the arrivals section of the Cancun airport on their actual check-in date, but some guests have not been able to access this area due to airport security protocols. The official word from the resort is that this is not allowed, so if you plan to attempt to utilize the shuttle transportation in this way, please note that this will be at your own risk. If you attempt to return and are not able to access the Cancun Airport arrival section or are denied shuttle transportation once on site, you will be responsible for your own transportation to the resort and the costs associated with this; the resort and Yellow Umbrella Events are unable to assist you with alternate transportation.
If you plan to go anywhere other than the Cancun airport on your official resort departure day, you will be responsible for managing your own transportation. Check-out is at 12 PM but you can stay and access the resort (not the parks) until 6 PM on your check-out date. Hotel Xcaret offers luggage storage until you depart. Late check-outs must be requested directly with the resort once you arrive. Yellow Umbrella Events cannot make this request for you.
Once you depart the resort on your departure date, you will no longer be able to access the resort. This means that you will not be able to return to the resort on any other date to utilize the shuttle transportation to return to the Cancun Airport. If you need assistance with transportation once on site, please visit the Guest Services Desk and they can assist you.

Americans with Disabilities Act

Since the hotel is not located in the United States, they’re not required to be in compliance with the U.S. Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. The Hotel has a limited number of accessible guest rooms that are available on a first-come, first-served basis. We can request an accessible room for you but it’s never guaranteed.
Also, public areas and restaurants at the Hotel are wheelchair accessible, just not wheelchair friendly. If you need to rent a wheelchair, scooter, or oxygen tank you can do so through Playa Mobility. Click here to visit their website.
Although transportation is included, we find that the resort’s accessible shuttle is not always available or reliable. For this reason, we would advise all guests that are mobility challenged to arrange for private accessible round trip transportation, for the best experience. Past clients have used Happy shuttle to book accessible transportation. Click here to visit their website.

Room Reservation FAQ’s

If you did not purchase the travel insurance, you may still be responsible for additional fees above and beyond the $100 per person cancellation fee which could possibly include the full amount of the room reservation.
No, not necessarily. This will depend on a few factors like the type of room category each person books since each room category could be in different areas of the resort and how full the resort is at the time of the event.
When you make your reservation you can send the request to us in the “Additional Information” section at the bottom of the reservation form and we will pass it along to the resort. They will do whatever they can to honor your request but it is not guaranteed.
