Top Answers To Cancun Travel Questions

    I hear you on the need to find somewhere comfortable, affordable, and convenient when traveling with young kids! Happily, Cancun is brimming with dozens of mega-resorts and all-inclusives, all packed to the gills with amenities for the younger set. But as you note, all you really need for kids under three is a pool, access to the beach, and a nice shady place in which to take that afternoon nap! There are some affordable options in the all-inclusive category, most notably if you can travel outside high season (which is Christmas and the winter months). Cancun's Sea Adventure Resort & Waterpark has pretty affordable rates, plus kids under five stay free. A bit higher on the scale, Riu Caribe get solid reviews from travelers and is packed with amenities for both he kiddos and the parents. On the cheaper, no-frills end, Villas Marlin next to the Sheraton in Cancun's Hotel Zone offers condo-style accommodation (kitchenette, washer/dryer, plus small on-site grocery store) and easy access to three small pools as well as the beach. Look across the water, too, to nearby Isla Mujeres and Avalon Reef Club, which is a laid-back spot that has suites equipped with kitchenettes to help with food prep, etc. back in your room. If you don't mind the shortish journey south to Playa del Carmen, you'll find loads more great properties with slightly cheaper rates than in Cancun. Some wallet-friendly all-inclusive picks here include the lush Catalonia Playa Maroma and Riu Tequila, both of which offer off-season rates as low as $80 per night. Given that this is such a popular destination, definitely shop around for the best rates and packages for your dates of travel. Even the higher-end four- and five-star places will be offering deals to get you in the their doors for less. Lastly, if you haven't yet booked your flights, don't forget air-hotel packages, which can shave significant $$$ off available hotel rates for some surprisingly upscale properties.

    It'll be warm enough, but you'll be going at the beginning of the rainy season. Spells of rain can be pretty sharp and sudden, though you will also get plenty of calm spells in between those tempestuous seasonal "nortes." Of course, the upside of the occasional rain shower is lower prices and slimmer crowds, which coincide with the Cancun high season winding down around mid-April.

    Visit http://www.cancun-discounts.com/ for information and rates on all water activities and ATV rentals. It also offers shuttle services. Before you reserve anything through the website, make sure to check with your hotel. Many hotels offer services or work with companies that provide water activities and transportation. Also keep in mind, because of the swine flu outbreak in Mexico, many places offer discounts. Shop around before picking one.
