Mexico is a tropical paradise steeped in tradition. Along the Carribean coastline of Quintana Roo, families can settle in cities like Cancun or Playa Del Carmen, both known for their immaculate beaches and salty ocean breeze. Spread throughout the state, you’ll discover a chain of adventure theme parks ideal for children who want an adrenaline rush – Xcaret, Xplor, and Xel-Ha among them. Families can go snorkeling with turtles, take a dip in a local cenote, or spend the day shopping on Playa Del Carmen’s Quinta Avenida. The nearby Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza, Coba, or Tulum also provide fantastic scenery for teaching children about the various indigenous influences that make up Mexico’s incredibly diverse history.
