Mexico is a great destination for a family with kids to spend an amazing vacation under the sun and having fun along the long beaches and islands. Many tourists head straight to Yucatán State, which is one of the 32 states of Mexico. Yucatán State is blessed with miles of perfect beaches along the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico. In the Yucatán, you can enjoy swimming in underground caves and snorkel with sea turtles at Akumal Beach.
The State of Yucatán is located on the Yucatán Peninsula. It borders the states of Campeche to the southwest, Quintana Roo to the east and southeast, and the Gulf of Mexico to the north and west. As a whole, the state is extremely flat with little or no topographic variation, with the exception of the Puuc hills, located in the southern portion of the state.
Besides the great beaches of Yucatán, There are also the Mayan civilization ruins that go back to 3000 years old, featured by the famous Mayan pyramids which definitely you don’t want to miss. The whole family will enjoy exploring the ruins in a great adventure and fun.
Mexico is also conducive to going without a strict itinerary, as historic sites, beaches, and cozy restaurants and cafés abound. Once there, accommodations, transportation, food, and excursions can all be done at any budget level. Stay in Tulum or another quieter town south of the most expensive and developed Cancún.
Time permitting, spend a few days in vibrant, culturally-rich Mexico City, which offers everything from stunning architecture to Aztec ruins to yummy street food.
