Unforgettable family vacations in Mexico
Manifold landscapes unfold to your inquisitive eyes during family vacations in Mexico. Travel to Tulum to visit the majestic coastal ruins of an ancient Mayan city, where lizards bask haughtily in the sunshine. Sublime, Caribbean-style white sand beaches glitter along the country's coastline. Visit an underwater art gallery off the coast of Cancún, where sculptures by Jason deCaires Taylor appear amid swirling shoals of fishes and beckoning marine fauna. Just along the coast, the Yucatan's famous cenotes glimmer like sapphires. Family vacations in Mexico are all about swimming with turtles in these transcendently beautiful natural baths.
Fantastic masks glitter in the floodlights at traditional Mexican wrestling matches at Arena Mexico in Mexico City. The 17,000-spectator arena is animated with a circus-like energy at weekly battles between luchadores. Make sure to have a gander at the brightly colored paintings on display at the Museo Frida Kahlo – the painter's vision defines Mexican culture. Cacti and caracara birds await you in Cabo San Lucas, where banana boating, diving, and horseback riding along the impressive beaches are a way of life. Also, bright lights, a fair, and food stands accompany the traditional Dance of the Pigs' Heads in Cozumel every May, and the Feria del Cedral is aglow with party spirit that your family will love.
