Visiting Mexico with the family: where to stay

We alternated hotels, Rbnb rentals. There is such an offer that you don’t have to book before. Unless you want to stay in popular hotels like these, which I particularly recommend!

In Tulum : we loved sleeping at Coco Tulum, a total kiff but I believe since that they no longer accept children. If I were to come back to Tulum, I would sleep in this Iolive hut on the beach !
In Bacalar : we took a house on the lagoon. But we had lunch at the very friendly Casa Caracol that I recommend to you!
In Uxmal : you have to sleep near the site, and the Pickled Onions is perfect (swimming pool and low price).

In Merida : I recommend one apartment with pool and air conditioning, but we also had dinner at the adorable Piazetta Hotel run by a Frenchman!

At Holbox : very few hotels accept children. So we slept at Dream Holboxclean and functional for a family.
In Mexico : we had a nice Rbnb apartment whatever happens, I advise you to stay at La Condesa.
In Guanajuato : go sleep with our favorite Hugo at theAlama Del Sol.

How to get around to visit Mexico

The buses are of good quality and totally recommendable for families. However, the distances are very great. And finally internal flights and rental cars are not that expensive! In my opinion, it’s a better calculation if you can afford it and you don’t want to spend your trip to Mexico on night buses.

I’ve read a lot of scary things about car rentals for Mexico…we had no problem at all. Read my detailed tips for rent a car in mexico.

Visiting Mexico: tips for cheap plane tickets

Plane tickets are clearly the big item of a budget when you go to visit Mexico (about 900€). feel free to look at the price of plane tickets to Mexico DF even if you go to the Yucatan. LDomestic flights with Volaris are inexpensive and the top airline. Take your domestic flights well in advance!

Do not hesitate to consult my dedicated article for buy cheaper plane tickets.

Finally, I draw your attention to flights with a stopover in the USA: you will then have to buy an ESTA visa (therefore pay for it) and collect your suitcases to re-register them. In short, prefer a stopover in Canada or England!

Visiting Mexico as a family: visas

You will not need a visa to visit Mexico with your family. Children and parents will only need a valid passport.

When to visit Mexico

Mexico is a huge country. At each time of the year you will find a sublime place to spend a super family stay !

If you are aiming for yucatan for a family trip to mexico, only the months of June and September are really to be avoided. Summer can be a bit rainy, but it doesn’t last. We went to Mexico in August and we weren’t bothered more than that by the bad weather.
If you want to go to the center towards Mexico City and on the coast, avoid December and January.
Finally, if you are attracted by the Chiapas, avoid the month of September. In every season, there is therefore a good place where to go in Mexico.
