They even fed lunch and dinner to the kids. Minimum age is 4 yrs, for them to participate in the "babysitting" / Kids Club amenity.

What is your best overall travel tip for Cancun?

If you REALLY REALLY want and are desperate for a deal on an excursion, agree to a sales presentation you are bound to be invited to. Money is valuable but time is precious... don’t let yourself feel trapped and don’t be afraid to say no. Always ask the conversion/exchange rate wherever you are- sometimes it’s cheaper to pay in USD and sometimes it’s cheaper to pay in pesos.
