Mexico Travel Tips for Families
Mexico’s hotels and resorts are the most popular option with families, specifically all-inclusive locations that offer a “worry-free” stay with children's programs, daycare, and entertainment to keep everyone happy. However, keep in mind that some hotels are certainly more family-friendly than others and that the wording “Kids Club” can mean a lot of different things (and ages!). It is recommended to always do your research, whether it’s reading reviews from TripAdvisor or consulting with a travel professional at No Borders Travel Agency who can help you choose the right property that fits your family's needs. A good tip is to choose a hotel that offers both a kiddie pool and adults only pool; if the kids are in camp for the day it will be nice to treat yourself to some grown-up quiet time, maybe at the swim up bar or spa to get some necessary massages.
Do not assume at all beaches in Mexico are swimmable or suitable for children; there are areas along Mexico’s coastline with rough waves either regularly or as a result of current weather conditions. Right now there are some issues with the over abundance of seaweed. Again, a destination-specific consultant will be able to best advise.
As tempting as it may be to spend your entire vacation days at your resort, be sure to choose some excursions in the area! Mexico has wonderful opportunities for outings such as private beaches, parks and mayan ruins. In Cancun or Riviera Maya we recommend Xcaret, and Tulum; in Mexico City, Chapultepec Park, Six Flags, or Teotihuacan can be great for all ages; in Puerto Vallarta we recommend zip lining, snorkeling or whale watching tour (winter season). In most Mexican cities you visit, there is always a main square or “zocalo” which is always a fun family experience; let the children buy a balloon or small trinket from the street peddlers while the teens soak in their surroundings and culture with all their senses stimulated.
