Cancun

Recommended Posts

I would, if travelling with  a family, head away from Cancun and travel down the peninsular to Playa del Carmen as its a lot quieter whilst still being family friendly.

Cancun was a bit rowdy when we called in but that was during spring break in the U.S.

Hi

My name is Pauline and I'm one of the Long Haul specialists.  I would most definitely agree, Cancun is pretty rowdy at times, particularly with the '18-30' age group so wouldn't recommend for families at height of Summer.  Probably one of the best hotels for families is the Gran Bahia Principe in the Riviera Maya area.

Thanks.

Have not been but have always liked the look of the moon palace in cancun.  Will be a hotel we visit in the future!

@Yvonne Sharpe I'd definitely recommend getting out with Cancun. We have stayed at Grand Sirenis & Grand Bahia Pricipe. Both were nice but GBP just edged it for me.

Hi there! 

I went to cancun last year with my sister. We are (were lol) 29 and 27 at the time. Had an absolute ball! We aren't the partying type but we wanted a hotel that was going to have a bit of atmosphere during the day. We decided to go with the RIU Cancun and it did not disappoint us. It was wonderful. Food and atmosphere and staff were brilliant and great location! 

There were kids at our hotel too. 

We did a few activities. We swan with sea turtles which was fantastic. We also did the cenotes (but water shoes for this) we went to dolphin discovery and swam with sharks and manatees. Also went to one of the natural water parks with the zip lines. I think it was called xal something. I wished I went to another one. Wasn't as good as I thought plus you're only allowed on things twice!

@Lisa2180 I think the common thought with Cancun is that it's not really a family holiday but there are so many different things to keep the little ones entertained. I'm definitely considering taking my 7 year old next year!
