Destinations / Mexico

As the back-to-school rush looms, now is a great time to whisk your teenager away for one last getaway. Family travelers with teenagers can enjoy a fulfilling trip at Sensira Resort & Spa in Mexico’s Riviera Maya. Here, parents and teens can take part in a variety of activities before the school year begins.


Here are five reasons you and your teenager will love the resort:


Endless Activities and Sports

For active and sporty teenagers, Sensira allows for bonding time with access to tennis courts and its mini-golf course. Families can also enjoy the Area Extrema, a space featuring adrenaline-pumping activities like zip lining and rock-climbing. Teens will also love playing volleyball and badminton on the beach.

Ample Comfort

Thanks to Sensira’s varied and flexible accommodations, families of all sizes can find the perfect space for them. The Jade Suite is a spacious choice, sleeping a maximum of seven with one king and two queen beds across two connecting rooms, each with their own private bathroom and room amenities.


Popcorn-Ready Cinema

The resort’s on-site cinema regularly hosts films, in which teens and parents can enjoy snacks and mocktails. The cinema is open and screens movies daily, showing films for every age group.

Socializing with Other Teens

While bonding with your teenager is important, letting them branch out and meet with other teenagers is important, too. Teens will love Emoji Teens Club, a space filled with pool tables, ping-pong and foosball, as well as a trampoline with basketball hoops, video games and virtual reality games.


Wellness for All

At the Inspiration Spa, visitors between the ages of 11 and 17 can choose from different 50-minute experiences tailored to their needs. Kids can choose from massages, facials and even a haircut. The spa requires an adult to accompany the child during their treatment, allowing for even more bonding time with your teen. For even more wellness options, families can take part in a yoga class at the beach.
