Family vacations in Cancun (for many people) mean simply relaxing on the beach or by the pool, enjoying the sun and eating delicious food. But Cancun offers much and more! Cancun is an excellent choice for family vacations. With activities for all ages and tastes, a tropical climate that is the envy of many destinations and beautiful landscapes all around. You can have an unforgettable vacation of relaxation or action – or a combination of both!
Here is a list of the top 3 tours that I recommend to any family who comes to enjoy our paradisaical Cancun. Mind you, there are MANY more amazing options that you can check out here.
Chichen Itza – a cultural family tour
You must visit the most important and impressive Maya site of the Yucatan Peninsula. It is one of the New Seven Wonders of the World and of extreme importance in the pre-Hispanic history of Mexico. Chichen Itza stands out with its great Kukulkan pyramid, its huge ball game, its Observatory and its many buildings full of history. The area is large and invites you to discover and enjoy its mysteries with your family.
Swim with dolphins – a super fun family experience
Another very special and perfect activity for families is to swim with dolphins. This is an adventure that invites all ages to come together and learn about these incredibly friendly animals. Being in the water, playing and touching the dolphins is a unique experience. It is so memorable that every member of your family will always remember! Plus it contributes to a greater understanding and respect for nature and dolphins. Learn more about our dolphin swim programs and book yours here!
Xel-Ha and Tulum – the perfect combo of family fun and culture!
One of the most beautiful and representative places of the Riviera Maya is the natural, ecological park Xel-Ha. A perfect place to enjoy your family vacations, with turquoise waters and fish of all colors and sizes. Snorkel, swim or float in the channels between mangroves. Walk or go cycling in the rainforest trails. You can even walk in the bottom of the sea with the famous Sea Trek®! All this while delighting in rich culinary options. Amstar offers a tour that includes a visit to the nearby Maya ruins of Tulum before reaching Xel-Ha.
