Family vacations provide experiences that educate our children about the world around them and create memories that last a lifetime. Cancun, once considered the "Spring Break Capital of the World" is now a world class vacation destination that offers tours and activities for all ages.
The whole family will love a day trip to Isla Mujeres, which includes a ferry ride and if you're smart, a golf cart tour around the island followed by swimming and lunch on North Beach, where the water is calm and bright turquoise blue. A visit to Crococun Zoo is educational, economical and fun. At Dolphin Discovery, kids can get up close and personal with the ocean's friendliest inhabitants.
Cancun is home to two waterparks, Sea Adventure, the smaller of the two, and Ventura Park, which also includes zip lines and a small roller coaster. Sea Adventure is better for younger children while the whole family can enjoy Ventura Park. The Interactive Aquarium, located in the Hotel Zone in La Isla shopping mall, provides a couple hours of fun after the beach and before dinner.
A day trip to Xcaret, located in the Riviera Maya, is an experience that the entire family will enjoy. Parque las Palapas, located in downtown Cancun, is the closest thing the city has to a town square. On weekend evenings there are activities for children and quite often, free performances. This gives kids an idea of what life is like for local children.
There's no shortage of activities for kids of all ages in Cancun.
