If you’re looking for a family holiday with a difference, how about a trip to Cancun? Located on Mexico’s glorious Yucatán Peninsula, this Caribbean delight is a bustling place with plenty going on both day and night. As one of the most popular Caribbean holiday locations, it’s well served by tour operators and has a wealth of family-friendly activities on offer.
Many hotels are booked on an all inclusive basis and have been built with families in mind. For instance, when you travel with Thomas Cook you’ll find that many of their hotels offer kids’ clubs and child-friendly facilities like splash pools, along with child-safe balconies and nearby attractions.
If you’re planning to spend most of your time in or near the hotel, perhaps straying to the beach or booking the odd excursion to see the local sights, all inclusive is a great way to keep your finances in check. Typically, all of your meals, snacks and drinks are included in the price which means you don’t have to fork out extra for snacks, or pay a fortune to enjoy a glass of wine with dinner. It certainly helps to make your family getaway that little bit easier – especially when booked as part of a package holiday.
So, what can you expect from a holiday in Cancun? Seasonal sunshine for one – and lots of it! That makes it perfect for long lazy days on the beach, building sandcastles with the kids, splashing about in the shallows and generally relaxing. A former Mayan civilisation, you’ll also find a number of ancient Mayan sites dotted about the area. And if you like a bit of buzz from your holiday, Cancun is open all hours! You’ll find scores of restaurants, cafes, shops, attractions, bars and nightclubs scattered across the city, so there’s always plenty to keep you occupied.
From long lazy days on the beach to fun-filled family excursions, Cancun is a captivating place and a great choice for an unforgettable family holiday.
