A Cancun Family Vacation – Things To Do with Kids

Top Attractions for Kids and Families in Cancun, Mexico

Posted by Kelly who blogs at the CancunCanuck.

While traveling with kids remember that safety comes first, do not leave kids unattended in the water – there can be some powerful currents in spots! The sun is very strong this far south so use a waterproof sunscreen and reapply frequently, especially if spending hours in the water. Quick dry surf-shirts are a kid’s best friend. Bring your beach toys or purchase them when you arrive – building elaborate sand castles and burying parents up to their necks in sand is a right of passage on family vacations. For little ones, a life jacket is a good idea, inflatable floaties and tubes provide a sense of security and fun in the water.

If you can drag the kids away from the beach, there are a multitude of places where they can still enjoy time in the water. Eco-parks like Xcaret and XelHa are full of surprises and fun for everyone. Snorkel with multi-coloured fish, visit the aquariums, meet some sea turtles and enjoy the flora and fauna of the jungle. Xcaret has an incredible night show that is not to be missed, lights, music and dancing provide an entertaining look at the culture of Mexico. Don’t tell the kids they’re learning something!

Snorkeling is an absolute “must do” in the region. The world’s second largest reef runs down the coast and you’ll find a whole new world in places like Cozumel, Isla Mujeres, Puerto Morelos and Akumal. Beginner and advanced snorkelers will love the Yal Ku lagoon in Akumal, a protected inlet with calm, clear waters, chock full of sea life. Swimming with sea turtles is an experience you’ll never forget!
