We did consider doing a cruise but thought an AI would be better for the kids at this age, plus this place seems to be a place where us adults can have a true break.
I'm actually heading on a Western Caribbean cruise in November with 11 girlfriends for my 40th birthday!!
That's the REAL vacation.
I haven't stayed at Club Med in Cancun but have been to Mexico/the Caribbean several times and I find that kids are catered too. The people in Mexico are all about the family, and love kids. I think you made a perfect choice of places to stay from the reviews that I have read and I also did find a little extra information that might help you out.
Club Med Cancun Yucatan for Families
•Baby Welcome program: parents traveling with infants are provided with amenities in their room, such as crib, stroller, infant bath tub, and bottle warmer. Around the resort: restaurants have high-chairs; families with babies can visit the shallow pool in the Kids Club area. Babysitters are available for a charge.
•Mini-Club Med for ages 4 to 10, in different age groups. Kids do activities around the resort, or play games or do crafts; with laudable absence of tv/video/computer screens.
•Mini-Club Show-- see above. A highlight!
•Passworld: kids age 11 to 13, and 14 to 17, have their own cool hangout and GO's, and special activities such as sound mixing classes, video-editing for music videos, jewelry-making; hip-hop dance, preparing for the theater.* Passworld theme at Club Med Cancun Yucatan is Car Wash. (See photos.)
•teens will also like the outdoor movies, projected on a large white wall: grab some headphones, and settle in on a lounge-chair by the pool.
PS... The 40th birthday trip sounds like it's going to be one Heck of a good time. Enjoy!!
