5 Places in Mexico to Enjoy With Your Kids

Mexico is one of the best places to take your kids on vacation. From gorgeous beaches to ancient ruins, the country has an array of spots that you and your children can enjoy. And City Express Hotels are conveniently located in these hotspots. Here are the top 5 places in Mexico where you should take your kids:

  1. Cancun – Home to some of the most popular beaches in Mexico, Cancun is known for its vast sands and crystal clear blue waters. It’s one of the hot spots for tourists, and because of that, it has an impressive display of restaurants, shops and activities for the family. If your kids like adventure, Cancun’s beaches are perfect for jet skiing, snorkeling, kayaking or even parasailing. The city is fairly close to one of the word’s most recognized archeological sites -- Chichén Itzá. The ancient Mayan city is home to “El Castillo,” a giant pyramid that was named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.


  1. Mexico City – From the beautiful plazas and parks to dozens of museums, this city has something for all members of the family. The gorgeous Chapultepec Park has all kinds of attractions – a zoo, lake, waterpark and museums. Your kids will be entertained with pony rides, rowboat and bike rentals and weekend concerts.  For an unforgettable experience, take a trip to Xochimilco right outside of the city.  You can take a boat through the canals and see the Aztecs' floating gardens. Along the canal are flower, fruit and food vendors. City Express Hotels has nearly a dozen comfortable hotels in this capital city, where you can stay on your next trip.

  2. Oaxaca – Oaxaca is an architectural gem filled with fantastic museums, magical festivals, colorful handmade art, pre-Columbian ruins and baroque churches encrusted with gold. Oaxaca’s main square, referred to as the zocalo, is the heart of the city. This plaza is packed with numerous cafés, balloon vendors and musicians. City Express Hotels has a hotel nearby that’s ideal for families. If your kids want to learn about Mexican history or explore contemporary art, Oaxaca has a number of museums. Your children will be having too much fun to realize that they’re getting a history lesson.

  1. Los Cabos – The postcard-perfect beaches in Los Cabos are similar to Cancun’s beaches. It’s a great place to enjoy water activities and have some fun under the sun. But the quiet town of San José del Cabo also offers a range of cultural activities. This charming town is adored with cobblestone streets, intimate restaurants, boutiques and churches. If your kids are up for it, you can take a breathtaking ATV tour through the beach at Cerritos, the mountains of Sierra Laguna, Cabo Pulmo National Park and the Zorra Canyon. It’s a great opportunity to experience the area’s beaches, deserts and forests all in one trip. You can stay at one of the City Express Hotels in the city for the best service!


  1. Riviera Maya - The Riviera Maya is the best place to take your kids if they like learning about nature and the creatures that inhabit the Caribbean shores.  At Sian Ka'an, you can kayak through the mangrove jungle or climb an ancient pyramid - all in a protected environment. The Sian Ka'an reserve is home to hundreds of different species of birds, plants and animals. The Riviera Maya is also one of the world’s top destinations for scuba diving and snorkeling. The expansive coral reef system just off the coast is home to colorful marine life like tropical fish, manta rays, dolphins and whale sharks. You can also go snorkeling and cave diving at one of the cenotes, which are unique to the Yucatan Peninsula. City Express Hotels in Cancun and Playa del Carmen are great choices to get to know these wonders!
