There are a lot of reasons Millennials visiting Mexico should drop by Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta, from the property's new Greg Norman golf course to its upcoming Cirque du Soleil Theme Park.

But the main hook here for Millennials looking for some fun in the sun is the hotel's massive swimming pool. 

The pool at the resort complex’s Grand Mayan property features a lazy river for the ultimate in relaxation, a number of smaller connected pools for privacy, water sculptures, foundations, swim-up bars, wave pools and even a Mayan temple slide. Although the Mayan temple slide is not part of the continuous large pool section that also contains the lazy river, clients basically just have to walk across the sidewalk to access it.
