While this is an activity for children led by the Kids Club leaders or activities team staff, the whole family can get it on the action when they are welcomed towards the end of this classic rite of passage on the beach to take pictures of the sandcastle masterpieces the younger members of their family have created.  They will head to a safe, limited area on the beach to build entire sandcastle towns which they decorate with the shells they find along the Cancun shoreline in front of the family favorite resort.  

Mayan Pre-Hispanic Show
