Best Resorts in Mexico with Kids

Best Resorts in Mexico with Kids

Mexico is a perfect place with visit with children. It has beautiful beaches, great food, and plenty of things to see and do for both, adults and kids. Many families want to pick the best resorts in Mexico with kids and not to worry about arranging meals, excursions or activities.

For the best resorts in Mexico with kids I’m focusing on the Caribbean coast family-friendly resorts in Mexico. Why?

Apart from knowing it better as I actually lived there for years (vs visited the Pacific Coast a few times), I do think that

The caribbean coast of Mexico is mostly Quintana Roo province and part of it is often called Riviera Maya. It’s known as the Yucatan Peninsula, but don’t confuse it with Yucatan itself as it’s another state in Mexico, home to Chichen Itza Mayan Ruins. It’s located to the east of Quintana Roo.

2. Hotel Xcaret Mexico – Best Alternatives to Nickelodeon Resorts

If the Nickelodeon Resorts don’t quite tick all your boxes but you still want to have the ultimate family vacation, Hotel Xcaret Mexico is a great alternative. Xcaret is a great choice if you don’t like the idea of staying in a cartoon land and prefer to really feel like you’re in Mexico without giving up all of the comforts of a luxury resort

But the biggest advantage of staying at an Xcaret resort is that you get free access to all the Xcaret attractions in the region which opens up a huge range of great places to visit in Mexico with kids. Waterparks, natural caves, ziplines, and pyramids are just some of the adventures that await.

  • Great Mexican restaurants for authentic and delicious meals
  • Eco-friendly design

3. InterContinental Presidente Cancun Resort – Best for Families Not Wanting a Total Kids Vibe

While the Nickelodeon Resort is oriented mostly towards the younger demographics, InterContinental caters to both kids and adults at the same time.

They offer a huge amount of pools, spa and water sports, all surrounded by the beautiful beach of Cancun. While they do have a playground and kids club, they can arrange romantic experiences for couples as well.

Restaurants are top notch and the location is very central, allowing you to explore Cancun outside of the resort.

3. Mahekal Beach Resort – For a Local Experience

Mahekal is a great option for those wanting resort facilities, but being in the middle of the town. It’s a unique option allowing the best of both worlds as you can walk around the explore easily.

4. Dreams Natura – Best for Food

Dreams Natura is the perfect option for being semi-central in Cancun, not right in a hotel zone. The resort has the usual facilities like multiple pools, kids club, and activities, but also a zipline and lazy river with some slides.

Their spa is gorgeous and food isn’t your typical all-inclusive buffet, but authentic restaurants with specialized menus.

Restaurants are top notch and the location is very central, allowing you to explore Cancun outside of the resort.
