Family travel in Cancun

Most families will choose one of Cancun's all-inclusive beach resorts for their base of operations. Some of these resorts are destinations in themselves, and families may have a hard time tearing away from all of the activities and free-flowing food and drinks. That would be a mistake, since there's much to experience in Cancun beyond the walls of the resorts. 

The Maya Museum opened this year and is a great entry point into learning about the ancient Mayas. Its exhibits showcase over 350 Maya artifacts. A highlight that will fascinate kids is the 14,000-year-old skeletal remains discovered in research dives into the underwater caves surrounding the ancient Maya site of Tulum.
If a family is visiting Cancun during the summer months they should consider joining one of the whale shark expeditions. These creatures measure up to 50 feet in length and weigh up to 15 tons. It's possible to get into the water and swim and snorkel among these gentle creatures.
Isla Mujeres is an island right offshore from Cancun. It's easily reached by ferry and families can explore the island on bikes and visit Garrafon Park, where they can snorkel, zipline or swim with dolphins.
