Things to See and Do While Staying at Shambala Petit Hotel

Even though you likely won't find many recreational possibilities on-location at Shambala Petit Hotel, that certainly shouldn't imply there aren't plenty of other fun things to see and do during your trip to Cancun and the Mexican Caribbean.

These cottages are so close to the water that the absence of a swimming pool on the property is not a concern for most visitors who can go swimming at the beach instead. In fact, even when there is a pool, most travelers spend so much time on the beaches in Mexico that they rarely use the pool during their vacation.

  • Kayaking
  • Snorkeling
  • Surfing

Family Activities

Families are welcome at Shambala Petit Hotel, despite the fact that you likely won't see an extra large selection of amenities or activities planned for youngsters. If you need a hotel to stay with specific perks that that appeal to kids, you might want to consider .

Children are welcome but please be aware in advance that the hotel is not designed with very young children in mind. The split level rooms would not be appropriate for young children and could be dangerous as they have open ladders and stairs leading to open loft areas from which a young child could fall if not attended at all times. They do not have family rooms but can provide cots for some of the

ground level rooms. There are no dedicated play areas but the beach is very safe. Babysitting services are available on request.

Some parents understand the value of some time spent without kids. At this hotel they allow parents the chance to explore alone, since they have babysitting services.
