Located in the Yucatan Peninsula of southern Mexico, Cancun’s vibrancy and idyllic weather make it an excellent destination for a family spring vacation. During this light season, the days are pleasantly warm in the low 80°s with no rain, perfect for lounging by the pool or exploring exciting activities such as cultural excursions, eco-tours, and exquisite gastronomy. But nothing says Cancun and captures your sight like the pristine turquoise water and white sand beaches!

How Do I Plan a Family Vacation to Cancun?

Once you have decided on Cancun, the first step is to find the perfect family resort and book air travel. Spring is a busy season. It is a popular time for spring breakers to visit, so the earlier you buy your flights, the more likely you are to find a good deal. Cancun has a large international airport with excellent connectivity, making it an accessible vacation destination with many scheduled flight options to choose from.

Next comes finding a resort that checks off all your boxes. Cancun has a grand collection of world-class resorts for every budget and taste, which does not necessarily make the task any easier. Thankfully, there are many resources to guide you in your decision-making path, from blogs such as this one, TripAdvisor reviews, and good ol’ window browsing on the resort’s website to get a complete feel.

Finally, once you have determined where to stay on your family spring vacation, it is time to add some exciting adventures to the mix. And with so many unique tours to choose from, you are sure to find exhilarating experiences for the whole family. A list of some great activities to do with kids is listed later. But first, let’s review the best resort for families visiting Cancun.

Best Resort for Families in Cancun

Cancun has world-class hotels and resorts, varying in price and tailored to specific types of travelers. They range from charming boutique hotels to large city-like resorts. Finding the one that best suits your family’s needs is priority number one on the planning list. An important aspect to consider is the type of plan you want to reserve. Many resorts offer either a European Plan meaning your hotel stay typically only includes hotel accommodation and meals are paid for separately, or All-Inclusive Plans, which, as the name suggests, include all meals, drinks, and accommodation. This last option is great for families since it takes away the stress of figuring out where to eat and the added costs.

Cancun and the Riviera Maya offer excellent family-friendly resorts depending on the area you prefer to be closest to. Resorts in the Riviera Maya are closer to Tulum and Playa del Carmen, while those in the famous hotel zone are in the heart of Cancun’s action. This bustling hotel zone is kilometers of resorts, restaurants, bars, and shopping. If you want to be near the Cancun action without being in the middle of its busyness, the best option is the up-and-coming area of Costa Mujeres in the north end of Cancun. This development is secluded and private while still close enough to Cancun’s main attractions, including the ferry dock to Isla Mujeres.

You wouldn’t have to leave the resort to have the time of your life in Cancun. However, if you want to explore what makes Cancun a world-class destination, gather your tribe, your sunscreen, and hit the road.

An exciting day trip to Isla Mujeres is always a crowd favorite. The adventure begins as soon as you board the lively ferry ride. Isla Mujeres is a charming island town with gorgeous beaches, local folklore, and tasty eateries to spend the day.

An unforgettable Cancun adventure is the Cenote Tour. Visiting the incredible Mayan underwater caves is both a cultural and an adrenaline-filled activity for the entire family – children must be at least six years old to swim and snorkel in the cenotes. Your kids will cherish this lifetime experience forever; diving into an open cave in the middle of a tropical jungle is a story for the ages.

The kiddos will also enjoy a day at one of the many theme parks (and there are plenty!), aquariums, and shows. A family excursion to the Mayan ruins will be the cultural highlight of your trip.
