Jam-packed with activities for land lovers and beach bums alike—plus exclusive access to RIU’s’ first water park, Splash Water World—these resorts and their amenities are kid (and kid-at-heart) approved.

RIU Palace Costa Mujeres
Play meets paradise at RIU Costa Mujeres. Families can explore expansive beachfronts, chill poolside (there are five!), or—for maximum relaxation with minimal effort—stay in one of RIU Costa Mujeres’ signature swim-up suites.
RIU Republica is where the “big kids” come to play and stay. Aquatic adventures abound at the adult-only resort with its post card-worthy beaches, extensive lineup of water sports, full access to Splash Water World water park, eight swimming pools and several swim-up bars.
RIU Palace Cabo San Lucas
The newest RIU Hotel & Resort redefines family vacations by blending a vibrant mix of intergenerational entertainment options.

When the adults-only resort opens its doors in December, guests may have a hard time deciding what to do first.
