Meet the Staff! Carlos Ernesto Bacab, Bartender at the First Cub in Grand Xcaret


Hello everyone! My name is Carlos Ernesto Bacab, your bartender at the First Cub in Grand Xcaret! I’ve been working at the First Club for the last three years, and have a lot of fun at my job! I love working with my team at the First Club and getting to know people from all around the world.

The drink I like to make the most is called “Bikini”. Definitely one of my favorites, and the members love it.  I’m 39 years old, and in my free time I like to play football, go jogging and dance.

I can’t wait to meet you all here in Grand Xcaret! You can be sure that you will have a great time here with us!

    Hi Carlos,
    Are you by any chance the same Carlos that was at Allegro Cozumel 11 years ago? That Carlos also loved football, worked in the entertainment club, and we LOVED him. I have been asking around to see if anyone knows where he went.

    What is in the Bikini??

    I emailed Occidental Xcaret over a week ago and have not got a reply yet- hope to hear from someone there soon about our reservation!

    Thank you!

    Hi. We met Carlos Ernesto Bacab, Bartender at the First Cub in Grand Xcaret this past December 2015 and it is true–he’s a barrel of fun and that bikini drink is a blast. He’s always smiling and happy to serve you or suggest a hangover ‘remedio’. KUDOS to all of the staff at Occidental Grand X-caret (Flamingo). Looking forward to our next trip.

  15. Hola Carlos. Nos hemos visto por 3 años, en que los hemos ido mi familia y yo. Me preparaste una bebido que llame POLOBEACH, quedando riquisima. Eres una muy buen amigo y un gran bartender. Este año te veremos por alla. Saludos a todos los compañeros.
