If you are planning a family trip with kids, probably you are wondering what are the best activities for kids in Cancun.

Traveling with kids is a challenge, and as a mom, I know you need to keep them busy, but at the same time, you would love to build wonderful memories that they will remember forever. In this post, I will share with you some great things to do with your kids in Cancun!

What are the best activities for kids in Cancun?

Ventura Park

Ventura Park is one of my favorites because every time that we have been there, we have had a great time and lots of laughs! The kids can enjoy water slides, laser guns, and fantastic zip line circuits. There is also a Lazy River that is wonderful to rest under the sun of Cancun. There you can also ride a roller coaster. So, as you can read, there are activities for all ages!

Interactive Aquarium

The Interactive Aquarium is located in Plaza la Isla in the Hotel Zone. Here the kids can see many kinds of fish, and they can touch beautiful rays and turtles. But the best of all is that they can interact with dolphins!


Xel-há, amazing water park for kids in Cancun

There is so much to do in Xel-Ha! Snorkel in beautiful cenotes, ride a bike through the jungle, swim with dolphins, have fun in the children’s playground,  places to rest and sunbathe, unlimited delicious food and beverages. Yes! You read well; Xel-Há is an all-inclusive park, so you can eat and drink all you want. I recommend a lot to buy the photo package because they catch exactly the best moments and you don’t have to worry about damaging or losing your cam or phone!

Xcaret Park

Xcaret is the most popular and amazing park in the area. It has great aquatic activities like Xelha, but you can also explore underground rivers, visit the Butterfly Pavilion, the Coral Reef Aquarium, and the Aviary. There is also a place of fun exclusively for the little ones called the Children’s World. This park also features cultural activities like El Pueblo Maya, an archeologic site, and many musical shows, and the famous Xcaret Night Show. You can’t miss it!

Crococun is a lovely place where children are taught to love and help nature. They can feed parrots, deer, and monkeys and even carry a baby crocodile and a friendly snake! With your visit, you support the place to keep animals happy and healthy.

I highly recommend the Jolly Rogers Pirate show because the kids have lots of fun with it. The whole family will be immersed in a fantastic pirate adventure, and after all that fun, you will end the day with a delicious dinner on board the ship. Even the little ones love dancing with the pirates and shout as one too! Arrr!
