​This Luxury Water Park In Mexico Is The Stuff Of Grown Ups' Dreams

​This Luxury Water Park In Mexico Is The Stuff Of Grown Ups' Dreams

Get those cossies at the ready, Mexico has opened a water park that will no doubt appeal to adults who like to bring out their inner child, as well as those that appreciate the finer things in life.

The fancy water park has water slides you can plummet down, but also appeals to an audience that likes to relax, with spa treatments, cabanas and virtually no queues, thanks to the cap on park entry numbers each day.

The water park set in a jungle world boasting sky-high trees and caves, that's located near Playa del Carmen, claims to offer a boutique experience, so it sounds like you're in for a treat.

Each adult entry is $79 (approx £63), but kids are allowed in too.

Children under the age of three go free and those three to 12 qualify for the kids rate of $59 (£47).

The park is owned by Vidanta which runs luxury resorts, hence why it's so plush and if you are staying with them you will be offered a special entry price.

The fee to enter includes a concierge service, private spacious showers, secure lockers for storage, Wi-Fi and plush towels.

Once inside, there is a dedicated children's zone 'The Rain Fortress' that offers up child-friendly slides, water cannons and spray fountains. Basically a child's dream.

And whilst children live their best lives in their special section, adults can treat themselves to a massage, do a spot of shopping for new swimwear, cruise down the lazy river, or be a big kid on the four slides suitable for both adults and older children.

Paradise Free Fall, Tropical Whizzard, Hoop Hoop Aqua Loop and Beachside Boomerang are the chutes on offer, which will send riders shooting into the main pool.

But if you're after a real touch of luxury, you can treat yourself to a cabana for the day for an extra cost.

It isn't a cheap addition, ranging from $220 (approx. £176) to $270 (approx. £216) a day, but that cost accommodates up to four adults and two children.

For the extra splash, you can expect access to an exclusive VIP area and luxury spa pools, a welcome fruit plate, cooling Evian facial spray, refreshing face towels, luxurious pool towels, a bottle of wine, assorted chef-prepared canapés and exclusive showers and bathrooms.

Suddenly that price doesn't seem so bad after all does it?

Grupo Vindanta said in a statement before the park opened that it will offer sophisticated attractions for the adventurous and an interactive platform for kids.

It also highlighted the park's fabulous lazy river that is "more than a kilometer long, the only one of its kind in Latin America, and one of the few wave pools in the world with natural sand."

The lazy river sounds epic. We love nothing more than a long relax on a rubber ring around a slow river.

But this one takes things to the next level, featuring swim up bars and dining huts you can access only if you float down the water to them.

We're not sure this park could get much better, it is certainly the reason we'll be heading to Mexico on our next getaway.

You can bag tickets now at Jungala or through travel agencies.
