Family resorts help children and adults feel at home in their seaside Mexican havens, while also entertaining everyone from tots to adults. A family-friendly resort will generally feature kids' clubs with activities targeted to specific age groups, from infants to teenagers. While the kids are safe and having fun, parents can enjoy some well-deserved alone time. Many resorts provide supervised daycare, playgrounds, game rooms, arcades, children's pools and teen discos, while also offering daily activities that the entire family can participate in such as snorkeling and kayaking. Poolside activities, beach volleyball, and a score of land-based options are also available. Most of these resorts also offer evening baby-sitting services, usually for an additional fee.
