Anyone who has ever traveled with a child in tow knows that kids can make or break the vacation for the entire family. If the kids are happy, everybody is happy. Teens and tweens are often the most enthusiastic of travelers, but their interests, and schedules, don’t always align with those of their younger siblings or parents. That means while you might be happiest striking out at the crack of dawn to explore an archaeological site, your teen would likely rather sleep in, load up on a huge breakfast and then mosey out around noon.
One way to keep boredom at bay is to ensure that your kids have a fun way to burn off excess energy. Consider a vacation around activities they love such as skateboarding, snowboarding or BMX for example. But where can you conveniently find these sports while on a beach vacation? Look no further than the Hard Rock Riviera Maya Camp Woodward + Wrecktangle. This isn’t your everyday kind of paradise. This is Woodward and it’s unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. The 29,000 sq. ft. shrine to lifestyle sports is built for thrills, and uniquely designed for all skill levels. Constructed for novices as well as world-class athletes, the newly opened Camp Woodward at the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya offers a new activity for beach-going visitors, both young and old.
Meanwhile, for parents simply wanting to zone out and chill there’s the resort’s signature Rock Spa, with 75 treatment rooms, a yoga temple and gym. By day there is an array of pools to lounge by, two private beaches, several Jacuzzi hot tubs and a free bar serving the best margaritas ever, so you could be forgiven for never leaving the resort at all.
The complex also includes four gourmet restaurants – authentic Mexican, French, Japanese and a Brazilian steak house – plus three bars, lounges and a nightclub with a swimming pool, meaning you really can party from dusk till dawn. Best of all the resort is all-inclusive, meaning your crew can eat as much as they want without asking you what’s for dinner.
