Family Activities in the Riviera Maya
One of the best things about the Riviera Maya is that there is something for everybody! If you prefer quiet relaxation on the beach, you can find a spot on the unending miles of pristine white sand beaches. If you’d rather go out to town, you can find any number of restaurants and bars with great food and drinks. And if you have a family, there is no shortage of kid-friendly fun throughout the region. You will find plenty of family activities!
The Riviera Maya is full of exciting and fun theme parks that are fun for everyone! If you enjoy exploring nature, you might want to check out Xcaret Eco Park or Xel Ha Natural Aquarium. There you can swim with animals or go ziplining through the lush forest. In addition, you might want to check out Xenses that’s based around toying with your senses! These parks are fantastic and full of family activities, even those with babies or toddlers because you can set your schedule and pace. And often kids under five are free!
There are a few zoos in the area, including Corocun Zoo. You can find animals native to the Riviera Maya there. Therefore, you will see monkeys, crocodiles, lizards, birds, deer, and coatis. Besides, if you or your family love birds especially, you might be more interested in the Playacar Aviary Xaman-Ha where you can see flamingos, egrets, parrots, pelicans, toucans and more. And as a bonus, children under 12 enter for free!
If the weather has turned and you’re looking for something to do, you can always go see a movie! Usually, theaters show cartoons dubbed into Spanish. On the other hand, live-action films are often in English with Spanish subtitles so it could be a good option. There are three theatres just in Playa del Carmen, and they are easy to find in any major city in the area.
Another great activity for rainy days is visiting one of the many museums in the area. Did you know that Playa del Carmen is home to the largest 3D museum in the world? Moreover, the 3D Museum of Wonders is full of fun illusions that are revealed when you take pictures and become part of the art yourself. You could also visit the Frida Kahlo museum on 5th Avenue in Playa del Carmen or the Museum of Prehistory Tulum. This museum is dedicated to promoting fantastic Ice Age artifacts which have been found over the years in the various caves and cenotes of the Riviera Maya.
Whatever your interests, the Riviera Maya has something for you to do!
