All inclusive gems
Stretching from Cancun to Playa del Carmen and all the way down to Tulum, the Mayan Riviera is home to some of Mexico’s finest resorts. With extensive facilities, a plethora of dining venues, entertainment and endless activities, our all inclusive resorts are perfect for families.
The fabulous Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort in Cancun is a firm family favourite set on a blanket of silky white sand. Eight pools meander around the resort and there is a dizzying choice of facilities including an incredible 15 food and drink venues. Stroll along the beautiful beachfront or catch a ride in a golf buggy to explore the expansive resort. Children can enjoy a world of fun with a splash of culture at the kids’ club (4-12 year olds) with treasure hunts, piñata-making, face-painting, puppet shows and Spanish lessons. There are also two kids’ pools with slides, a climbing tower and playground whilst teens can enjoy computer games, air hockey and pool in the games room.
The Reef Playacar enjoys a central setting close to the bustling town of Playa del Carmen and offers a more intimate experience. Follow winding jungle walkways through the charming resort’s tropical grounds and discover pretty waterfalls and cenotes. Choose from a range of watersports and activities, relax on the beach or cool off with a delicious treat at the resort’s ice-cream parlour. Little ones can enjoy a range of activities at the kids’ club (4-12 year olds).
If you plan on visiting the superb ecological and archaeological themed Xcaret Park then we recommend the Occidental Grand Xcaret which is ideally located next door. This family-friendly resort is dotted with attractive pools and there is a small sandy beach that is perfect for kids, a host of activities including archery, tennis and yoga, as well as a fun kids’ club (4-12 year olds).
Unmissable eco park
There is so much to see at Xcaret Park that you can easily spend a few days exploring its sprawling tropical grounds. Discover beautiful wildlife including jaguars, spider monkeys, macaws and flamingos, take a leisurely boat ride along a stream, follow jungle trails, visit the butterfly pavilion, snorkel along the underground river and enjoy the magical experience of swimming with dolphins. The spectacular evening show is a cultural explosion of colourful costumes, music, traditional story-telling and a dramatic re-enactment of ancient Mayan games.
Endless choice of adventures
If the superb choice of activities on offer tempts you from the comfort of your resort then it is easy to arrange any number of fun excursions. The whole family can enjoy zip-lining adventures in the jungle, coming face-to-face with local wildlife, horseriding on the beach, boat trips to nearby islands and exploring ancient ruins. The fascinating history and mythology of the Mayans and gruesome tales of human sacrifice will captivate older children and a day trip to Tulum offers an excellent combination of culture and beach fun. These striking ruins boast a dramatic cliff-top setting overlooking a picture-perfect powder white sand beach that is lapped by extraordinarily bright cerulean waters – perfect for a refreshing dip after a busy day of sightseeing.
