Fantastic and very safe area in Mexico. I've stayed in Cabo and Cancun, this by far is the best! Amazing beaches and great downtown.

Bring them to Xcaret. It is a beautiful place very catering to kids. They have many animals there including dolphins. The new kids area will be great for your kids too.
