Mexico’s posh water park where there are virtually no lines and you can have spa treatments

216

GRAB your swimming costumes and head to Mexico where a new luxury water park boasts virtually no queues and spa treatments.

The ‘theme park for adults’ is just 45 minutes from Cancun, found just outside Playa del Carmen.

Jungala, who call themselves a ’boutique aqua experience’ allows children between the age of three and 12 although has areas just for adults as well as kids-only.

The park has four slides for both adults and children – Paradise Free Fall, Tropical Whizzard and Hoop Hoop Aqua Loop and Beachside Boomerang – all of which send riders plummeting into the swimming pool.

There is also the longest lazy river in Latin America, called Lazy Rio, which is 3,000 feet in length and features swim-up bars and dining huts which can be accessed by the inflatable tubes.

Kids can stay in the Rain Fortress, which features slides, water cannons and spray fountains, as well as the water-slide complex which has some children-friendly chutes.

With the park capping the number of daily visitors, don’t expect to see many long queues.

Guests who want some added luxury can hire one of the 19 Instagram-friendly cabanas.

Ranging from $220 (£177) to $270 (£217), it allows access for up to four adults and two children to exclusive VIP areas of the park which includes luxury spa pools.

It also includes a welcome fruit plate, flavoured waters, bottles of wine, cooling facial spray, towels, canapes, personal showers and bathrooms as well as a cleaning attendant and discounts on spa treatments such as massages.

Despite food and drink not being allowed, there are restaurants and bars onsite too.

Tacos, hot dogs and salads can be tried at the food hall, while snacks, as well as cocktails and smoothies, are located at huts throughout the park.

Forgotten your sunglasses? There are even shops in the park which sell everything you could need.

Souvenirs, toiletries and medicine can all be grabbed without needing to leave the park.

Guests who wear fancy swimwear are warned to avoid any with buckles or metal on them as they are not allowed on the slides.

Drones and selfie sticks are also not allowed in the park.

Entry to the park doesn’t come cheap – a standard Jungala day pass costs $79 (£63) for adults.

Compared to UK theme parks which average £10-£20, the luxury experience comes with a price tag.

However, even the most basic entry ticket also includes free WiFi, towels, lockers and showers.

Guests who stay at the nearby Vidanta Riviera Maya resort can also get discounted tickets
