We’re planning a Cancun trip - a few days in Cancun, a few days in playa .
Looking for beautiful, fun for the family activities . I’ve heard of xcaret park, rio secreto, xenotes, Cozumel with snorkeling, dolphins.
Anyone done this with kids (ages 5-15 ) and have any recommendations? Things that were amazing, or not so great?

I’ll take any info because I’m clueless.

Thanks!

Hyatt ziva in cancun is perfect for what your looking for. Kid friendly and close to food. Depending in the amount of days your trip is, I'm not sure its the best idea to change location mid trip. You can still spend a day in playa eat there etc and then drive back at night.
Speaking from my own family, I doubt my kids would like to switch hotels mid trip.

Thanks. We’re already switching and I think will be fine for us . I’m asking more about daily excursions. Any great trips to recommend? I’ve heard of xenotes, rio secreto, isla mujeres, xcaret park, Maayan ruins ? Any details about trips would be so helpful.
Thanks!

Mexico is not safe now. I wouldn't travel around. Even in Cancun, you to do be vigilant and alert.

Want to echo and emphasize these cautions!

Please check out the situation before even going

For those saying Cancun is unsafe, it is actually considered low risk for any kidnapping or other incidents. Do you have specific experiences that make you feel it’s unsafe?

Sorry my bad, got your post wrong about what you are looking for. Regarding activities I don't have any experience since we've always stayed on site.

Have any of you danger preachers actually been to Cancun? Or you just read news and enjoy fearmongering?

Last I heard there were several shootings and knife attacks in Brooklyn. Oh and Jerusalem had a terror attack. Don’t go there!

There was actually a gang shooting right at the beach of Hyatt ziva. They came on jet skis and were shooting. So I don’t believe in fear mongering but I do believe in being educated.

Do you never leave your home? Do you wear bullet proof vests? Do you never travel by train, plain, bus? What a boring life you must lead.

Cancun is huge. There are thousands and thousands of tourists traveling there every month. There are hundreds of hotels there. The beaches are huge. The kosher restaurants are full of Jewish families round the year.

Isolated incidents make news because they are unusual.

Some people are Scared to have a life.

Thank you ! I really just wanted to ask about daily activities for kids. Thank you to those who have made suggestions! If anyone has anything else I would appreciate.
