For families seeking a combination of thrills and pampering, these all-inclusive resorts feature zip-lining activities if not onsite at the resort, very nearby. Families can fly high in the treetops of the jungle or scoot across a mini zip line just a few feet off the ground. Whichever level of adventure your family is seeking, these all-inclusive resorts will satisfy that need to glide through the sky.

Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa - St. Lucia
This St. Lucia, all-inclusive resort offers an abundance of activities for the whole family to enjoy. There are pools, waterslides, a lazy river, kids' club, the beach (of course), and multiple zip-lining opportunities. Along with the unlimited food, drink and activities, the kids can enjoy CocoLand, where they will find a mini zip line. Offering just enough zipping fun that's not too scary, the kids will love the mini zip line only a few feet off the ground.
But if you are looking for more adventure, there are several zip line adventure excursions nearby that can be purchased through the resort. Families can choose from a variety of sky high tours on opposite sides of the island, all of which are less than hour away from Coconut Bay Beach Resort and Spa
Lighthouse Point at Grand Lucayan - Bahamas
The white sands and turquoise waters of the Bahamas are hard to beat at this all-inclusive family resort. There are four restaurants, unlimited golf each day and live entertainment each evening. The kids will love the movie nights by the pool, too. But for those seeking adventure, the best part of the Lighthouse Point
resort is that it is about 1 mile (or less than 10 minutes) away from Pirates Cove Zip Line and Water Park. The family-friendly park is the newest attraction on Grand Bahama Island and offers 7.5 acres of beachfront property, along with fun activities like zip lining, a floating ocean playground and kayaking.
Belizean Dreams - Belize
Everything is truly included when you purchase the all-inclusive vacation package at Belizean Dreams
. This resort is ideal for larger families with two-bedroom suites and three-bedroom villas available. The beach, pool, bikes, kayaks and snorkeling are all included in the all-inclusive rate and then based on how many nights you are staying, a designated number of adventure tours are included. So if you stay four nights, you get one tour, but if you stay six nights you get three tours. Families will absolutely love the Cave Tubing and Canopy Zip-Lining Tour that is included in the package. After a short hike through the jungle, families will zip from treetop to treetop 80 feet above the ground. After conquering the five zip line platforms, it's time to hop in a tube and float along the river through caves. This is an all-day tour and includes lunch.
Melia Caribe Tropical - Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
This all-inclusive Dominican Republic resort is a tropical paradise with tons for families to do. There are 10 pools (two children's pools), a mile-long beach with calm waters, a kids' club, arcade, volleyball, basketball and tennis courts, plus daily activities filled with games and arts and crafts. But it's the onsite Adventure Park that we think kids will like most at Melia Caribe Tropical
. The Adventure Park at this all-inclusive resort offers a 30-foot climbing wall, a zip line and ropes course and super jumpers. There is an additional fee for the zip line and super jumpers, but for families seeking thrills, it's worth the additional expense.
Occidental at Xcaret - Playa del Carmen, Mexico
Located next to the Xcaret Park, Occidental at Xcaret
offers families the beach, five pools and a kids' club. It's also the closest all-inclusive resort to Xcaret, which offers waterslides, an aquarium, caves, archeological sites and so much more. When you purchase your admission to Xcaret, make sure to get the package that includes Xplor, too. At Xplor, families can fly through the jungle across 14 zip lines high in the sky. During the guided zip-line adventure, you will also cross suspension bridges and zip down a water slide, too!
Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort - Cancun, Mexico
This all-inclusive Mexican resort is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Cancun. Families will love the numerous pools (including two kids-only pools) and the Flowrider, where the whole family can ride the waves. Biking, snorkeling and karaoke will also keep families busy at this all-inclusive resort. Moon Palace
is also situated near the zip-lining fun at Xcaret and Xplor Park. While it is not as close as the Occidental resort (Moon Palace is about an hour from Xcaret), it does offer families similar amenities and the same zip-lining adventures.
