Things To Do

La Cantera for Kids

Family vacations should be paradise for parents and kids alike. Parents should be able to lounge in a luxury cabana or even enjoy an indulgent couples’ spa treatment while kids romp around in the splash area or learn about local flora and fauna in the Naturalist Program. This is the basis for La Cantera’s family activities.

La Cantera has long been a beloved destination for families because it embraces both what parents need to relax and what kids need to play. When families aren’t cooling off in the pool, they can be playing games in the arcade or taking the resort shuttle to Six Flags. Discover all of the activities that have made La Cantera one of the best family resorts in Texas.

Kids' Pools

Make a splash in two of La Cantera's family-friendly pools. Families are welcome at the infinity-edge Resort Pool, which also features poolside Vista Grill. But families will really love the kids' pool, where kids can play in the splash zone or shoot down two slides as parents look on.

Six Flags

Nothing calls to your inner kid quite like a theme park, especially when that park is Six Flags San Antonio. But the experience is all the better when you have your actual kids in tow. Bring the kids to La Cantera and channel all the little kid energy you’ve got for a day at Six Flags.

Every guest with a single-day ticket, group ticket, Membership, or Season Pass will be required to make a reservation for a specific visit date at sixflags.com/reserve. The process will take about 5-7 minutes, during which guests will complete the following steps:

  • Enter their online order number, ticket number, or Membership/Season Pass number;
  • Select the date they want to visit, and the approximate time they wish to enter the park;
  • Watch a brief video that describes new social distancing and sanitization procedures;
  • Acknowledge their understanding of the company’s health policy; and
  • Order pre-paid parking, if they do not already have a pass.

SeaWorld San Antonio

San Antonio may not be the first city that comes to mind when you think “theme park.” But it should be. One of the city’s first attractions was actually SeaWorld San Antonio, and it's still a beloved stop on a San Antonio family vacation. Read up on everything to know about the park.
