When you’re traveling with your family, or you want to enjoy a big vacation together, it can be tricky to find the right destination to suit you all. There may be young children and older teenagers together. You need a place that will allow everyone to enjoy activities that cater for each age group. And there are bound to be a few things the grown-ups would like to do too!
Mexico is one of those destinations that offers so much for a family group. The landscape is as diverse as you can get. Here, you’ll find jungles, beaches, mountains and deserts. This means there are countless activities to choose from. How often does a family get to enjoy so many sights in one place? And even on a budget, you can find cheap holidays in Mexico.
With a big family, packing can be tricky to do. Consider using accommodation that includes laundry facilities when there are a lot of you. If you need to carry small children, you can’t possibly manage large, heavy cases as well. Pack light, but remember to bring some things to keep the kids entertained during the journey.
Small children and babies also have quite specific dietary needs and routines. A self-catering apartment may be best. That way, you have a fridge for the milk, and all the other things the kids may need. You can also eat when it suits the family instead of waiting for the restaurants to open.
