The Best Cities in Mexico for a Family Vacation

The Best Cities in Mexico for a Family Vacation

It is hard to pick where to stay in such a beautiful country. This is a shortlist of the best cities for a family vacation, based on safety, beauty of the beaches, kids’ attractions, and amenities.

  • 1. Playa del Carmen

    This popular resort city on the Yucatan Peninsula is paradise on earth. Think palm-fringed beaches and turquoise waters. Playa del Carmen is perfect for families because it’s safe, it’s small enough to walk to most points of interest, and its main street - 5th Avenue - is pedestrianized. In the evening, you can take your kids to Fundadores Park to see the daily family show. The 3D Museum is another fun highlight.

  • 2. Cancun

    This Yucatan city is home to the world’s second largest coral reef area. It is great for a Mexico family vacation because of its bicycle-friendly streets, miles of white sandy beaches, great family facilities, Mayan ruins, and inviting culture. A visit to Cancun Underwater Museum and a boat tour to the underwater cave system are a must.

  • 3. Puerto Vallarta

    Located on the Pacific Coast, Puerto Vallarta has beautiful blue flag beaches, a fantastic boardwalk, and a great range of activities on offer. From Aquaventuras water park to swimming with dolphins, you can rest assured your kids will be kept entertained. The charming cobbled streets of the old town are perfect for an evening walk.

  • 4. Tulum

    Right on the Caribbean Sea, Tulum is not only famous for its incredible beaches, but also for the beauty of Tulum National Park, with its well-preserved Mayan ruins, dense forest, and cenotes. It is a small, low-key, eco-conscious town with a family-friendly feel.

A Mexico family vacation promises lots of fun activities: water parks for active kids, snorkeling among turtles and dolphins for animal lovers, and Mayan ruins for history fans.

    Riviera Maya’s largest theme park is located between Cancun and Tulum. It offers an incredible range of activities, from canoe tours to swimming along underground rivers and a coral reef aquarium.
