Now, the spirit of the Maya can touch the experience of the whole family at Nizuc Resort and Spa. The new Winik’s Kids Club program lets children at Nizuc explore their boundless curiosity and creativity, drawing from the extraordinary natural surroundings and native influences surrounding them. It also lets parents relax, knowing the needs of every family member are thoughtfully attended to at Nizuc.
“Winik” is itself a Mayan term, with meanings that include “person,” “people” and “children.” Winik’s Kids Club was created for the fun, wonder and self-expression of children with a native spirit, and gives children “their own world” at Nizuc, with different daily themes and activities tailored to their age group.
The Kids Clubs are divided into age groups from four months up to 12 years old, each given its own special “base” at the resort, with most bases containing their own swimming pool and shade sail for sun protection. Winik’s aims to offer children an inspirational and educational daily schedule of activities, attuned to nature, in a fun and safe environment.
Theme days include “I Am an Artist,” water splashes, cultural days, “Fun With Nature,” sports day, and “Nizuc Warriors Adventure and Champions Day.” Depending on age, activities within the Kids Clubs range from the trapeze, yoga, stretching and sports, to dancing, pool games and a kid’s fashion show. Nizuc knows parents may want to be a part of their kid’s activities, so Winik’s Kids Club now also incorporates family time and family-oriented events such as dance classes, family treasure hunts, as well as Master Chef– and Amazing Race-themed challenges.
Winik’s Kids Club is yet another way Nizuc lets the whole family “get away from it all.”
