The Best Mexico & Caribbean Resorts for Families

It’s winter, which means it’s time to think about heading to the sunny shores of Mexico, Costa Rica, and the Caribbean. There are numerous hotels and resorts for adults only or for families if you are the two adults + two children combination, but what if you are a family of 5? Or what if you are a blended family of wee ones and teens? Or what if Grandma is coming along, too? With the hundreds of hotels to choose from, we’ve split them up for you…

Here are some perfect resorts for whatever kind of family you are:

Resorts that Allow for 5 in a Room

Resorts Great for Families of all Ages

Resorts Great for Families on a Budget

Resorts that Grandma will Like, too
