The hustling bustling city of Cancun has so much to offer and there’s no better place to stay than the The Moon Palace Resort. This little slice of paradise has lots to keep the little ones occupied. Take them to try out the 27 hole golf course or learn to surf with the on-site flowboarding. There's even a bowling alley and arcade, whatever you decide to do there’s something to keep you and the kids busy day and night. Venture out from the bubble of your resort and take a boat trip across to the nearby Isla Mujeres Garrajon, where you can kayak and swim amongst the beautiful natural reef parks. This terrestrial snippet of bliss is a place to create truly, treasured memories with your family. Visit the un-missable Rio Secret Underground river tour where crystal caves and stunning stalactites enclose the sapphire waters. For a more adrenaline fuelled day check out one of Cancun’s nearest theme parks, Ventura park will be sure to give you and the kids a thrill in-between relaxing beach days. You could even take a day trip over to Yucatán to visit some of the historic architecture...
Immerse yourself in true culture in the beautiful state of Yucatán, famed for its remarkable archaeological sites. Swim in some of Mexico’s most immaculate waters and wander through the rustic, colonial cities this area has to offer. Keep the kids entertained by taking them to some of the best snorkelling spots in the world where they have the chance to swim with a rainbow of different fish and coral, If they’re lucky they may even spot a turtle.
Another ideal location for families is the Riviera Maya. This glorious stretch of coast is home to some of the most exceptional beaches. From the majestic, hidden caves to the limestone cenotes, you can choose to sit back and relax on the beachfront or get out and about to explore the surrounding areas. Our top pick for accommodation in Riviera Maya is the Grand Velas Resort. This impressive location submerges you in luxury. Indulge in gourmet dining in the evening and make use of the onsite spa throughout the day whilst the younger ones are busy at the kids' club. Get some headspace and take yourself over to the fitness centre where you can take part in a number of wellness classes. Enjoy poolside waiter service whilst you drift in one of the infinity pools and sit back and relax knowing that the kids will always be occupied. Take a trip to the Maya ruins of Chicén Itzá, where you can spend the morning strolling around the archaeological remains and learning about the history of these important remnants. Head for lunch in the regal city of Valladolid followed by a quick visit to Ek’Balam, another smaller ruin worth a stop by. There’s plenty to see and do in the Riviera Maya, from tasting local foods to exploring more remote, surrounding areas. There is enough to keep you active should you wish to explore outside of your resort.
Overall if you’re stuck on where to take your family for days filled with culture, relaxation and play then Mexico can offer you all of this combined and more. Create eternal memories for your children to remember for the rest of their lives and trust Mexico to provide you with non-stop fun and much needed chill time.
