Yes, Cancun remains a popular spring break destination for college co-eds. But if you ask us, it's a family vacation destination through and through.

Cancun's famous Hotel Zone blooms with high-rise hotels and resorts, with new properties opening each year. The all-inclusive resorts offer everything you'd dream of having on a family vacation: stunning pools, onsite restaurants, water sports, age-centric kids' programming, live entertainment, and direct access to the teal-blue Caribbean Sea -- all covered in one easy rate.

It's worth exploring outside of the resorts, too, and most resorts offer safe, guided tours that take families to the ancient ruins of Tulum, Xcaret Park, and a number of cenotes (underground caverns). Especially fun is swimming with the whale sharks (May to September)! We also recommend taking a 20-minute boat ride to the tiny island of Isla Mujeres. Some resorts, such as Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun, offer transportation right from their properties.
