Not only will things be fine…your child will think you’re the coolest parent ever!
2. Roller Coaster (Click here to visit webpage)
Visit the only roller-coaster in Cancun’s hotel zone. This is the type of roller-coasters the whole family can enjoy.
You get all the thrills (without it being SUPER extreme).
3. Deep-Sea Fishing
Remember how excited your child got when they caught a large-mouth bass?
Imagine that…. times 100!
We’re talking Marlins, Sailfish, Barracuda, Grouper, Mackeral, Mahi-Mahi, and so much more. (Just Google deep-sea fishing in Cancun and you’ll find a TON of options. You really can’t go wrong with either of them)
Go-Karts(Click here to visit webpage)
If you’re taking your kids to Cancun, this is a MUST. And rest assured, they’re safe. They go 25 mph around a 275-yard track.
Watch from the sidelines…or show your kids who’s still boss!
5. Wave Pool (Click here to visit webpage)
Can you believe it? They actually have pools that have waves. How crazy is that?
Technology these days huh?
Show your kids something that will drop their jaws.
6. Water Playground (Click here to visit webpage)
Ok. Close your eyes. Now imagine a really fun playground for your kids to enjoy. Now picture that same playground…except with a foot and a half of water at the bottom.
Yup. Your kids are going to have a BLAST here.
7. Jungle Tour
Ok. So maybe the name is a bit misleading. This is actually a boat tour.
But here’s the catch…YOU drive the boat. Don’t freak out though. It’s a VERY tiny boat. It handles with ease.
You can drive through the mangroves and explore wherever you want. And don’t worry. This isn’t the open seas. It’s in a safe and calm bay.
(Just Google “jungle tour in Cancun” and you’ll find plenty of options)
8. Bungees (Click here to visit webpage)
If you have older kids, they’ll thank you!
Are you concerned about their safety? Don’t be! This is a super legitimate company. They uphold themselves to the highest standards.
9. Crococun Zoo (Click here to visit webpage)
This isn’t your typical zoo. Why? Because it’s super interactive. You’ll even get a chance to hold a baby crocodile.
You can feed monkeys. And listen to talking birds!
10. Laser Tag (Click here to visit webpage)
This is no ordinary laser-tag. This is laser-tag, Cancun style!
Think bumper-cars, meet laser-tag. First, you strap yourself in tightly. Then, try to avoid getting shot. Because if you do…you’re going to for a full flip!
11. Captain Hook Dinner Adventure (Click here to visit webpage)
Take your kids on a real pirate boat! Ok. It’s authentic, from the outside. It’s a replica of an 18th century Spanish galleon.
But on the inside? Totally modern. Even has AC.
You’ll play games, contests. Best part?
You get to see pirates put on a show. They’ll even clash swords!
12. Waterslide Park (Click here to visit this webpage)
This may be the ULTIMATE family activity in Cancun.
And, I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking “but I don’t like waterslides”. They’re scary.
Don’t worry. There are waterslides just for you.
Try the Lazy River. Lounge on an inner-float tube, and just slowly float.
Meanwhile…your kids are slipping, sliding and having the time of their life.
13. Oculus Rift Virtual Reality (Click here to visit webpage)
Yes. It’s official. The future has arrived.
Remember Pong? Two vertical sticks and one moving circle.
44 years later, and we have LEGIT virtual reality. You have to try it to believe it.
And this isn’t some cheap replica of virtual reality. This is the Oculus Rift. The best in the business.
Your kids will worship you for it. =)
