5 kid-friendly Cancun resorts

Cancun is famous for luxurious mega-resorts, laid-back locals, and a backyard full of ancient Mayan ruins, but make no mistake—most people go for the glorious beach. Long, dreamy stretches of sun-drenched white sand and the turquoise Caribbean combine to create the kind of sand-and-surf getaway we envision in our mind’s eye.

By all means, bring the kids. Hotels here know what families are looking for in a beach vacation, and they deliver. Here are five of Cancun’s best beach resorts for families:

The next time you want to go on vacation, don't go to Mexico, the Drug Wars are taking over the vacation spots and killing the people for their money and jewels.  Stay in the US and save your money and Life!!!

Save the fun, sun and security of the cancun tourism industry to those of us who have actually ventured out.  We have traveled to Cancun and Isla numurous times (10+ times in the last 8 years) with smal children through grown adults and have not had the SLIGHTEST hint of crime nor trouble!  NOW...if you go looking for it...as in any venue/locale...you are most certainly going to find it!

 

To all the nay-sayers...what a bunch of ignorant bafoons! If you live your life solely by what media accounts you choose to listen to...then you deserve to stay holed up on your moms basement! Stay in your dog house or in your cave and be careful not to piss yourself when a cloud goes over!

They are nice but 90% of the time you get the craps from either the food or the water.  We loved it down there but won't go back.
