Mexico for Nature and Wildlife Adventures
“The Riviera Maya, Mexico offers beautiful beaches, fantastic food, cultural activities, and plenty of adventure for families who want to get beyond the sun and sea. Plus, there are flights from both coasts, which makes meeting up with friends and family simple,” says family travel expert Henley Vazquez (Passported, an Affiliate of Tzell, New York, NY)
Hotel Tip: At the eco-friendly Fairmont Mayakoba at Playa del Carmen, outdoor adventurers and wildlife enthusiasts will have many options to discover the canals of Mayakoba and explore the nature and wildlife of the mangroves, as well as ancient ruins like Chichén Itzá with guided tours. The kids’ club offers a great variety of activities.
Nature and culture enthusiasts will also love the area in and around Ixtapa, Mexico. Here you can explore the amazing marine life by taking a kayak or catamaran tour and snorkeling the warm waters, or swim with the dolphins. Take your children to discover Xihuacan culture through an archaeology tour.
Hotel Tip: Club Med Ixtapa is a great place to stay. Gregg Kaminsky (R Family Vacations, an Affiliate of Tzell, New York, NY) says: “I just love the setting. It is not the easiest to reach but once you arrive you are going to experience the most beautiful setting and a perfect family vacation. One of the greatest benefits: The kids club starts at just four months.”
