While within Xcaret México Espectacular there are songs that are popular songs such as “Son de la negra” or “Jarabe Tapatío“, most of the show’s music is original and has been created by the musicians at Xcaret. One of the epic moments of the show is “The Encounter of Two Worlds“; with a musical composition that represents the meeting of the pre-Hispanic world with the New World brought by the Spaniards to America.


The singers of Xcaret come together for one last song: “México en la Piel”. The moment in which the entire cast goes out to bid farewell to the spectators, carrying flags of many countries and singing together the song that has become a hymn.
