A perfect introduction to Mexico for families
Plenty of activities to keep everyone in the family amused and entertained
Let your children discover their inner Indiana Jones as they clamber through Mayan ruins and enjoy a scavenger hunt
Mexico City can be visited visit most of the year but can sometimes be really cool in the mornings and evenings with strong sun throughout the day. Mid November to May is the best time to visit the Caribbean coast of Mexico. June to November can be affected by tropical storms, with the highest risk usually in September and October.
Let your children's imaginations run free as they experience the vibrant Mexican culture firsthand on this exciting tailor-made itinerary, taking in the excitement and colours of Mexico City, ancient Mayan ruins around Merida and the beautiful beaches of the Riviera Maya.
Begin by flying to the buzzing capital of Mexico City, where you can find plenty of fun things to do from exploring the awe-inspiring pyramids of Teotihuacan, taking a boat trip through the floating market at Xochimilco or even cheering with the locals at a Mexican wrestling match! A tour of Teotihuacan and Xochimilco has been included for a colourful introduction to Mexican culture.
Fly to Merida, the capital of Mexico’s Yucatan state, to spend three nights at a grand and beautifully restored hacienda surrounded by lush tropical jungle near the magnificent Mayan ruins of Uxmal and Kabah. Children will love imagining themselves as Indiana Jones as they explore the incredible temple cities, or hike through the jungle to a secluded cenote for a private bathe. Search for fun clues and treats around the ruins of Uxmal on a fun family scavenger hunt which has been included.
On your second day, head to Celestun Biosphere reserve which is near to Merida and home to hundreds of pink flamingos.
Finally, head to Mexico’s glorious Caribbean Coast for five nights of fun and indulgence at the slick Banyan Tree Mayakoba, staying in one of their fabulous three-bedroom town houses with its very own private roof top pool.
When you’re not in the spa, in your villa’s private pool or hitting the beach, there’s plenty to see and do for all the family. Mayakoba has a Greg Norman-designed golf course and there are non-motorised water sports available down on the beach. Nearby snorkelling and diving is excellent and of course Mayan history and culture with the impressive Mayan archaeological sites of Chichen Itza, Tulum and Coba within driving distance. It's also fantastic fun to take a kayak out into the Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve and look for manatees.
Visit the Celestun National Park and see an stunning array of wildlife such as white tailed deer, armadillos, crocodiles, and flamingos. Go on a boat ride in the beautiful lagoon and enjoy the beaches and crystalline water.
Solve a series of clues and look out for amazing Mayan artefacts on this family scavenger hunt around the archaeological site of Uxmal, its temples and ball courts an impressive reminder of the Mayan empire and its fascinating history.
Teotihuacan is among Mexico's most impressive ancient monuments, and this enigmatic Toltec (and later Aztec) ceremonial complex is just an hour from Mexico City. Get a insight into the awe-inspiring rituals of the Meso-Americans before the Spanish came.
