Let your children's imaginations run free as they experience the vibrant Mexican culture first-hand on this suggested seven night itinerary, taking in the beautiful beaches of the Riviera Maya. Relax together in a beautiful resort and enjoy a host of arranged excursions like a private catamaran, privately guided tours of Tulum, and snorkelling adventures where the kids can witness the incredible sealife.

Trip Overview

Depart from Dublin to Cancun to begin your family holiday on the Riviera Maya.
On arrival, your driver will be waiting to transfer you to your luxury resort. Here, you will spend the next seven nights on the Caribbean Coastline.
Enjoy a private Catamaran sailing trip and snorkelling tour.
Explore the open sea around the bay of Cancun and Isla Mujeres on a 41-foot catamaran. You can swim or snorkel around the second largest coral reef in the world. A wonderful experience for the whole family.
Catamaran sailing
It’s time to explore Tulum and Sian Kaán with a private guide.
Your expert guide will pick you up at your hotel and you will drive to Muyil. You will enter Sian Kaán Biosphere Reserve, in Maya means ‘origin of the sky’. The reserve is made up of a large water system, marshes, and mangroves as well as virgin tropical forest.
Sian Kaan birds
Start the tour on foot, taking a short hike through the jungle to the Muyil Maya temple.
The next part of the visit will be by boat. Along with your expert guide, you will explore the reserve by water, discovering a cenote (sinkhole) that lies underneath the surface. There will also be a chance to swim in the clear waterways or float along the ‘lazy river’.
Mayan Ruins, Tulum
Next, it’s on to Tulum.
Tulum was a Maya fortress city that peaked between the 13th and 15th centuries. Your guide will lead you in exploring this small site, that was an important place of trade in jade and turquoise and despite its size, displays many styles of Maya architecture.
Tulum waters
You’ll have time in between excursions to relax together as a family.
You may relax in your lovely surroundings and take advantage of the many amenities and activities available in Riviera Maya or just lay back in the white sands and turquoise seas.

Adventure to Rio Secreto Underground River and Caverns.
You will be privately transferred to Rio Secreto to explore the extensive underground rivers and caverns that crisscross the Yucatan Peninsula. Enjoy a small ride on a van that will get you deep inside the jungle. Immerse yourself into the caverns and start your 600-meter private route full of beautiful stalactites and stalagmites and other geological formations.
