Those enjoying a luxurious honeymoon or discovering a culture are bound to agree that both young and old will thoroughly enjoy all the attractions and activities that Mexico holidays provide.
After taking a look at the following reasons why you should take a trip to Mexico with the family, you’ll soon be stocking up on pesos and ponchos, and learning how to order a taco in Spanish (QuerrÃa comer tacos, por favor, just in case you’re curious!).
Value for money
Compared to other prominent family friendly destinations around the world, Mexico holidays are much cheaper and offer greater value for money. From all-inclusive trips to budget getaways, you could find yourself saving a significant amount of money.
Beaches to die for (but please don’t!)
With over 6,000 miles of coastline, a trip to one of Mexico’s beaches is a cheap and cheerful way to spend any day with the family. Although there are a number of impressive resorts on the Pacific Ocean, popular destinations next to the Caribbean Sea, including Riviera Maya and Cancun, are hard to beat.
You don’t have to be an experienced scuba diver to discover the spellbinding tropical fish and coral reef that occupies Mexico’s surrounding oceans. Second to the Great Barrier Reef in size, the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System lies close to Cancun, Playa del Carmen, and Cozumel, and contains endangered sea turtles and marine life.
Even the fussiest young eater will enjoy Mexican cuisine. You’re bound to eat a fair share of tacos and tamales, but for something a bit different head to the inland cities of Puebla and Oaxaca. There you can taste all the different varieties of mole, a sauce made with chocolate and chilies. Beats ketchup!
As a country that officially recognizes the importance of young people, with Children’s Day (El DÃa Del NiÃ±o) falling on April 30th each year, you can be sure the whole family will receive a warm welcome. Normally, hotel resorts will have supervised clubs and activities, but the eco-amusement park and natural adventure site also set the scene for fine family days out too.
Regardless of the time of year you decide to visit Mexico, favorable weather is just about always on the cards. Little wonder that Mexico has attracted tourists looking to escape the winter blues for some much needed sun over the past few decades.
Although youngsters might not necessarily remember much, taking them to visit the ruins of two Mayan cities in the Yucatan Peninsula at Tulum and Chichen Itza is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Mexico has taken care to preserve these, and they’ve now become popular archaeological sites.
The weather’s warm and the people embrace families with open arms. You can relax by the Caribbean Sea â€” or go exploring it! â€”and feel all your troubles back home disintegrate. Paradise and culture are yours and your family’s to experience. Best of all, it won’t break the bank. So that would be a family ticket to Mexico then, would it, please!
