You’ve grown up, but has Cancun?
Spring Break often conjures up images of partying college students, but these days there are ways to take that needed time off without feeling like you’re an extra in The Real Cancun mockumentary. In fact, there is more adult and family-friendly fun to be had in Cancun than ever before.
Cancun may be synonymous with gorgeous beaches and crystal waters, but there is also a plethora of other natural wonders at your disposal if lounging on the beach isn't your thing. The inherent beauty of the Yucatan is omnipresent as soon as you leave the Hotel Zone or downtown Cancun , with jungles, cenotes (water-filled limestone sinkholes), and ancient ruins begging to be explored.
A Resort for All Tastes
When spring-breaking in Cancun, the beautiful islands of Isla Mujeres and Cozumel are ideal spots for some intimate romance or unforgettable family experience, respectively. If you and the fam are fans of everything aquatic, Aquaworld has the answer. With everything from glass-bottom boats, to extreme watersports, and all manner of tours, Aquaworld brings the Caribbean to your feet.
If laid back is more your style, Palace Resorts is your refuge. With five resorts in Cancun to choose from, you can expect to enjoy the most soothing spa treatments, pristine golf courses, and enticing flavors that Mexico has to offer.
Beach Palace offers an unmatched shoreline and expansive views of the ocean – especially from the rooftop pools and bars. Sit back with a cocktail and relax in the sun or opt to go for a light jog on the sand and join in a game of beach volleyball. Regardless of your preference, this beachfront playground has plenty to offer.
Moon Palace Cancun is another incredible choice for the all-grown-up spring breaker. Not only do they offer all-inclusive services and countless amenities, but they will actually pick you up from the airport for free. Not to mention, kiddos will be in their element at the state-of-the-art Playroom, and teens will be entertained at the cool Wired Lounge, while you take a night out at the Noir nightclub designed by renowned French designer Francois Frossard. Oh, and did we mention that kids and teens stay for free at all Palace Resorts in Cancun?
Extend the Fun
Although fun, excitement and relaxation are all included at your all-inclusive Palace Resort, why not take advantage of all that Mexico has to offer? Indulge your adventurous side and step off campus to take tours of ancient ruins, swim with dolphins, dive into underground rivers, or choose from one of countless other offered explorations.
If you take a bit of a drive south you’ll hit on Playacar Palace which offers cerulean waters and powder-white sands, all just a few steps from the famed Quinta Avenida town center. Here you can walk the strip of shops, restaurants, and bars to find something new at every turn.
Get Involved, Get Wet
“Whale watching” season begins in mid-April, and just off the coast of Cancun you can watch and swim with the largest fish in the world, the whale shark. Dive into the warm waters and experience the gentle nature of these giant creatures, all while keeping an eye on neighboring turtles and stingrays.
You may not be a twenty something anymore, but that doesn't mean you can't indulge in a little spring break getaway that strikes a balance between fun, relaxing, and genuinely fulfilling. After all, you aren’t just seeking a spring break to remember, rather one that you are actually able to remember.
