10 Places to Stay for a Memorable Family Vacation in Cancun

Cancun is no longer Spring Break Capital of the World, though Spring Break is still alive and well in Cancun, it is also an ideal place for a family vacation

There are numerous family-friendly resorts in Cancun that cater to the needs of children of all ages. Most have babies/kids/teens clubs that feature age-appropriate scheduled activities throughout the day. Many also offer babysitting services and other incredibly cool kid-friendly attractions like miniature golf courses and waterparks. Sea Adventure Resort & Waterpark is home to a full size waterpark that both small children and older kids will enjoy.

Club Med Cancun Yucatan not only has kids clubs, but they also have cooking and fitness classes and even spa treatments just for children. The resort has also added more suites that will accommodate large families. In addition they loan high chairs, changing tables, bottle warmers and other things that families might need while on vacation.

Dreams Cancun's kid's club, The Explorer's Club, holds an overnight camping excursion once a week and kids get to camp on the beach (they are supervised of course). The WestinLagunamar features a large waterslide, iguana feeding and smores parties. Great Parnassus offers family suites and a pirate-themed waterpark that is sure to excite your little pirates.
