To obtain a list of 4-star and above all-inlcusive resorts located in the Caribbean or Mexico that are family friendly and, ideally, have a water park. For each park, obtain details on location, food options, and price.

Suggested for Further Research
  • Based on the frequency with which they were included on lists of the best resorts with water parks, we recommend conducting further research on Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa in St. Lucia; Hilton Rose Hall Resort & Spa in Jamaica; Nickelodeon Hotels and Resorts Punta Cana; Beaches in Turks & Caicos; and Memories Splash Punta Cana in the Caribbean.
  • In Mexico, there was less repetition of the top resorts so we recommend choosing 3 from the above based on the ones that have the highest ratings on Google and/or Trip Advisor.
