So what to pack for kids when coming to Cancun? Well, the answer can be very different depending on the age of your children. However, it is super important to be prepared for any situation during your trip. So join us and prepare your list for the best family experience!
Sunscreen for protecting their skin
For the little ones, 3 years or younger, using baby sun creams made especially for kids in this age range is a must. It is best that babies stay in the shade for as long as possible because their skins are still very sensitive.
The SPF protection factor must be above 50 and must be applied at least 30 min prior to sun exposure. We recommend you to dress them in clothes that protect them, sunglasses and hats are also going to be of great help.
Special tip: Here you can find out how choosing a biodegradable sunscreen can avoid causing damage to the environment and reefs more specifically.
Mini first aid kit
When going out with children, especially if we are going to take long routes, it is necessary to have articles that help us handle accidents.
Take with you bandits for cuts and scrapes. Gauzes and antiseptics are also very useful as well as insect repellent, in Cancun 7 o’clock is also known as “la hora del Mosco” – the mosquito hour.
Packing analgesics and antacids won’t hurt either, take into account these measures for the prevention of discomforts.
Water bottles to prevent dehydration
It is very important to be properly hydrated! because in Cancun the climate is hot and very humid. Make sure that you’re always hydrated so take with you a water bottle to fill. When leaving your hotel take at least 2 liters and some snacks with you.
Fruits are the best snack option for kids because they are healthy, tasty and provide a good source of vitamins. And you can find really tasty and exotic ones in Cancun! Great for you and your children to recover energy after a day at the beach.

The Essentials for Babies
You’ll need the usual things that are carried in a bag when you go out with your baby: clean diapers, disinfectant wipes, and swim diapers for the beach. Baby powder is also very useful for preventing irritation on your children’s skin.
Remember, children’s baggage is not something to be taken lightly so try not to leave it to the last minute. And try to include some change of clothes in your hand luggage so they feel fresh and clean even if your bags get lost.
Their favorite toys
