If you’re looking for a family escape with a difference, how about a holiday in Mexico?
Full of Spanish flair, flashy fiestas and sizzling fajitas, this is certainly the place to fire up your kids’ imaginations.
It’s not your average bucket and space break, that’s for sure!
With a long history that entwines local tribes and early European settlers, Mexico is alive with a fascinating blend of culture, traditions and lifestyles. Come and discover the Aztecs, find out more about the mysterious Mayans and dip your toe into modern Mexican living.
Mexico is certainly the place for a family holiday of a lifetime.
Many family holidays and child-friendly activities are found on Mexico’s glorious Caribbean Coast. Bustling resorts like Cancun are ideal for families.
Here, you’ll find a buzzing atmosphere with fabulous all inclusive hotels and a modern purpose-built centre, which offers plenty of shopping (for essentials or souvenirs) as well as more than its fair share of restaurants.
Many beaches in and around Cancun offer shallow, child-friendly shores – perfect for little paddling feet – and the chance to enjoy excursions like boat trips to the ‘turtle island’ of Mujeres, or lively jeep safaris.
Older kids can try their hand at adrenalin-pumping watersports like diving, jet skiing and even sea-fishing.
On the other side of Mexico is Puerto Vallarta, a stunning region located on Mexico’s Pacific Coast. Here, experience a completely different landscape that’s characterised by rocky coves, long ribbons of golden sand and warm pockets of water that form lovely lagoons.
Take the children out on a whale-watching tour or get up close and personal with sea life on a snorkelling or scuba diving excursion.
Whatever floats your boat, it’s fair to say that Mexico is a dream holiday destination with plenty up its sleeve to keep the whole family happy from dawn ’til dusk.
