Mexico Family Vacations
For the people hoping to find a suitable place to bring children
on vacation with them, you will find that Mexico is a very family
oriented country. So you will find hotels and businesses very accommodating
wherever you go.
So now, you need to pick a vacation destination.
Tip 1 :
Everyone loves the beach . . . kids included. The beach destination
list which I suggest would include Mazatlan, Puerto Vallarta, Cancun,
Playa del Carmen and Tulum. Some of the other cities like Acapulco
are fine if they just want to look at the water, but the waves hit
the shore pretty hard there.
Tip 2 :
Kids love exploring ruins. However, age is a factor. If they are
3 or under, you may end up carrying them. You can bring a stroller
(just in case) but remember that if you plan on doing any pyramids
(or steps within the grounds), that won't help much. . . speaking
of pyramids, you will want to be sure that ANY climbing means that
they will hold fast to a guide rope or your hand. Safety first!
Tip 3 :
Kids are kids no matter where you go . . . and they will enjoy the
same things on vacation that they enjoy back home. That means TV,
swimming pools, amusement parks and McDonalds. You may want to spend
all day exploring, but don't expect the energy kids usually have
to translate into miniature Indiana Jones types. The fact is that
the heat and humidity of the climate can quickly take its toll on
children and they dehydrate much faster than adults . . . so plan
on plenty of stops for them to rest and rehydrate.
Tip 4 :
Write down your name, hotel (including address) and room number
and stick the paper in their pocket. God forbid they should become
separated from you or get lost, but if the worst should happen, that
little piece of paper will help more than you could imagine. You
are in a foreign country and being lost is scary enough without knowing
where you live or how to reach your parents.
