Cancun All Inclusive Resorts

By

Cancun's 25-km Hotel Zone of double waterfront (ocean and lagoon) is a magnet for tourists who want dining, shopping and night-life, and is also popular with families. Most higher-end properties are not all inclusive, so if you're after that extra pampering, see Luxury Cancun Resorts that Welcome Families.

Introduction to the Area

The 25-km Hotel Zone has a double waterfront, with ocean on one side and lagoon on the other, and most properties welcome families. Visitors should be sure to take day-trips to the Mayan Riviera to explore Mayan ruins, a coral reef, the Xcaret eco-theme park, and more.
