Traveling to Mexico with your Family

55

Vacations are wonderful for families. They provide you with the chance to catch up, have fun and reconnect with each other.

The other day I was reading this Mexico guide by SafeTrip and realized what a beautiful place it is. So, I did a little more research and came up with several possible family-friendly destinations. 

The practicalities

But, before I dive into my list of places to stay I need to go over a few of the practicalities. If you are a US citizen with a passport that will be valid for 180 days after you arrive in Mexico, you do not need a visa. But before booking anything you need to double check that this is still the case. Citizens from other parts of the world may need a visa, regardless of the validity of their passport.

Officially you do not need any extra vaccinations to be able to enter Mexico. But, it is best to have the Typhoid and Hepatitis A vaccines. Both diseases are widespread and can be picked up from drink and food.

You should always buy travel insurance. If you travel without it you are taking the risk of facing a big bill should a member of the family fall ill or have an accident.

Where to go

OK, so that is the practicalities out of the way. Now, let’s look at where to go.

Tulum

If you like beach holidays, you cannot beat the town of Tulum. It is within a 10 to 15-minute drive of several lovely beaches. If you have the budget to do so, you can even stay in one of the hotels that are located just in front of the sand. But, most people like to stay in the town, hire a car or bikes and use those to get to the beach. If you do decide to stay there, be sure to take a bit of time out to see the Mayan ruins and visit the Xcaret archaeological theme park.

Puerto Vallarta

This small beach town is within an easy drive of Yelapa, Mismaloya, Bucerias, and Sayulita. There are plenty of water sports to keep everyone occupied as well as sunbeds and umbrellas for hire.

Cancun

This is one of Mexico’s most popular tourist destinations. It has a stunning beach as well as several family-friendly resorts complete with water slides, kid’s clubs and a long list of activities for everyone to enjoy. The Beach Palace and Fiesta Americana Condesa resorts are particularly popular with families. They are both all-inclusive, which really helps you to keep control of your budget.

Los Cabos

The two capes of San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas are known collectively as Los Cabos. These two towns offer very different holiday experiences. San Jose is laid back and San Lucas crazy busy. So, it is always easy to find an activity that fits in with everyone’s changing moods.

During the day, you can head to Playa El Medano and spend the day playing in the sea and on the pristine sand. It is an especially good place for snorkeling. In the winter, you can also enjoy whale watching. Golf and horseback riding are available year round.

Finding out more about travelling to Mexico with children is easy. There are plenty of bloggers that have recently traveled with their kids to Mexico. Typically, they provide the most practical advice.

Nice post, guys! I especially agree with your suggestion to find the best balance on how fast you travel. It can be easy it wants to see more, more, more, but traveling around so quickly makes it hard to work and just live life. You can’t go that pace for too long without burning out. Great advice — thanks for sharing!

Travelling is one activity that every individual must undertake at one time or the other, as part of their earthly existence; it does not matter what the purpose of travel is, or whether the travel is local or international. A lot of people actually look forward to travelling to other parts of the world for various reasons and purposes.
