Summertime is such a nostalgic time of year – full of sunshine, freedom and excitement. Now that summer is officially upon us, you can be sure that children everywhere have excessive amounts of energy and their parents are dying for little bit of a break. What if there was a place to take the kids to expend their energy while also allowing the parents to replenish their own sanity with immense relaxation and rejuvenation?

Good news – there is.

All-Inclusive resorts offer a variety of exciting activities for children and teenagers. While the parents relax poolside with a cold beverage, the kids can be involved in an array of fun and educational games, making new friends and exhausting all of that extra summertime pep. While we have many, many family friendly resorts that we recommend, a couple of our favorites in Mexico and Caribbean are Royalton Riviera Cancun and Sunscape Splash Jamaica .
