Family Mexico

From mystical Mayan ruins and teeming city markets to the turquoise waters of the Yucatan Peninsula, a luxury family holiday to Mexico has everything for an aspiring archaeologist or a diving discoverer to enjoy.

By nature of its geography and undulating terrain, getting around Mexico may seem like a mammoth task... especially with little ones in tow. You can be safely assured though, our Original Travel specialists have done all the hard work for you. From navigating through some of Mexico's highest peaks to mastering the chaotic crowds of Mexico City, our experts have all the tips and tricks to ensure your family holiday is a roaring success. Whether you'd like to hug the coastline on an epic family road trip adventure, or enjoy some enriching cultural experiences, our Original Travellers can create an itinerary to suit your family down to the finest detail.

Known for its pristine beaches of Cancun, Los Cabos and Baja California, you may choose to explore Mexico's endless Pacific or Caribbean coastlines on your luxury family holiday to Mexico. First stop: the palm-fringed, fern-covered Riviera Maya. Perched on the Yucatan peninsula, it is the place for swimming in azure cenotes and staying in fishing lodges or amping up the luxury with a stay at an all-inclusive luxury resort. The Riviera Maya caters to all travellers and - more importantly - their families too.

Dig beneath the surface a little (or perhaps, with its Ancient Mayan Ruins, above the surface in this case) and you'll find that Mexico has an intriguing cultural. Just a short flight from the nation's capital you'll find, nestled among Mexico's mountainous highlands, the beautiful states of Oaxaca and Chiapas. Home to some of the country's steaming rainforests, bustling marketplaces and a handful of its remarkable archaeological sites, Mexico's southern coastline is oozing with character.

Begin in the colonial city of Oaxaca and watch your children's eyes wander as you amble through its stone alleyways and vibrant marketplaces by day, and hunker down in an 18th century colonial house by night. Venture just outside the city centre and you'll discover the impressive Monte Alban archaeological site; not the greatest playground in the world, but it'll definitely do. Next - Sharky & George packs to hand to keep your youngsters entertained for the journey - move to Chiapas, a state brimming with family-friendly activities. From the charming cobbled streets to its marketplaces filled with a coruscating kaleidoscope of colours, the state of Chiapas has it all.
