If you are thinking of taking a family trip to the city of Cancun, a great idea is to find and stay in one of the best hotels for children in the city. For we all know that these hotels have many activities to offer to your little ones and of course to you big kids.

But even though it is a good idea to stay in a family hotel, where you have water parks, slides, kids club, game room, many times this is not enough to keep your little ones and even yourself entertained and that is why, in this post from our Traveling By team, we will tell you what are the best kids activities in Cancun.

Float Fun Cancun

The float Funny is a small artificial water park located in Playa Langostas in Cancun. This small park consists only of a path of “floats” that form the word Cancun.

And because the waters of this beach are known for their shallow depth and tranquility, it is an activity not to be missed on your trip to the city. By the way, did I tell you that you can also find the letters of Cancun here?
