Article originally appeared in Forbes.

Luxury residential developments rarely skimp on elevated, thought-out amenities for adults (think: state-of-the-art fitness centers, spas, pools or even business-focused conference rooms), but it’s not too often you find equally as tricked-out centers for children.

Forbes has rounded up the top luxury residential developments around North America that are creating imaginative, dedicated spaces for kids of all ages, from toddlers to teens, that ensure no one feels left out when moving to a new home. Here’s the definitive list of developments, surrounded by plenty of activities, that will appeal to any family-focused prospective home buyer.

One&Only Mandarina

One&Only Mandarina is the opposite of crowded Mexico beaches and all-inclusive; it’s a secluded, relaxing getaway with world-class design. Woven within the coastal rainforest, the hotel and residences offer panoramic vistas of the ocean, coast, an inactive volcano and natural splendor of Mexico. Peppered by palm trees and along sandy, swimmable shores, there are few more tranquil resorts in all of Mexico. In addition to the hotel, there are  Private Homes, ranging from $4.4 million to $17.8 million. Kids will be overjoyed at the KidsOnly Club, which has treehouses connected by suspended bridges, slides, climbing walls and paved trails. This fantasy world within a tropical rainforest setting prioritizes adventure, exploration and learning within the club’s nature hut. Kids will learn about local animals, birds, insects and ancient archaeological artifacts from the indigenous Cora civilization of the region. There is also an insectarium, run by a biologist, to teach kids about the circle of life, new insect species and more. Fun for both kids and adults, there are ancient protected petroglyphs surrounding the property and kids will hear stories from the ancient peoples that once lived in the area.
