All Inclusive Water Park Resorts
1. Nickelodeon Resort Riviera Maya
Recently opened, the Nickelodeon Hotel and Resort in Mexico’s Riviera Maya is the ideal all-inclusive water park resort for a family getaway. Nickelodeon is designed so everyone can enjoy it. There’s no age limit on having fun here.
The water park, Aqua Nick, includes all the crazy excitement you expect from Nickelodeon. (Yes, that includes getting slimed!). The park covers a whopping six acres of land across the Riviera Maya’s lush tropical landscape. Kids and adults are both in for a wild ride at Aqua Nick. Climb Soak Summit Tower as a family and try not to get dizzy on the 18 meters of twisty turn-y slides back down. Younger kids will love Bikini Bottom Beach, a Spongebob-themed, multi-level water playground. Too much excitement? Take a break from it all with a float on the lazy river.
2. Royalton Splash Punta Cana
Guests at the Royalton Splash Punta Cana are granted unlimited access to one of the largest water parks in the Caribbean as part of their all-inclusive package. Water features include a wave pool, splash pads, and seven waterslides of all shapes and sizes. Options for little kids are as readily available as slides big enough to entertain adventure-seeking adults. After the water park, plenty of spacious pools make it easy to find your own little oasis to relax.
3. Beaches Turks and Caicos
One of the best all-inclusive water park resorts for families with kids, Beaches Turks and Caicos has 45,000 square feet of aquatic adventures. Called Pirate Island, the gigantic pirate ship is the main attraction. Here, kids can use powerful water cannons but they need to watch out for massive geysers. There’s even a swim-up bar for kid-friendly frozen treats and a self-serve ice cream machine.
Three gigantic, fast-flying waterslides steal the show, but you have plenty of smaller options to choose from as well. There’s even a surf simulator for kids and adults to try. To wind down at the end of the afternoon, head to the 650-foot lazy river and enjoy a peaceful float surrounded by tropical greenery.
4. Sandos Caracol Eco Resort
In Playa del Carmen, Mexico, guests at Sandos Caracol Eco Resort will love the Aqua Park. Designed specifically for everyone’s enjoyment, you’ll find water slides perfect for toddlers alongside crazy Kamikaze slides for bigger kids and adults. There’s a whole area specifically for younger children with many options for more gentle slides, a play structure, and water features. In fact, there are over 20 different slides inside Sandos Aqua Park. The snack bar is well stocked with hot dogs and hamburgers to keep the energy high all afternoon.
