Family Mexico: Mayan temple adventures

12 days from £3,309pp
 

Private Journey

 

Our family holiday to Mexico’s Yucatán peninsula is jam packed with fun things to do and exciting, educational opportunities to boot. It’s a perfect destination for families, with plenty of sunshine, sandy beaches and jungle ruins. Hotels have facilities and attractions for family members of all ages. 

Mexico’s Yucatán peninsula, with sunny Caribbean beaches on the Mayan Riviera offering both water sports and the ruined pyramids and temples of the Maya shrouded in jungle is a fun-packed family destination. A direct flight from the UK, short drives linking attractions, a huge range of eateries and friendly local people make it even more so.

Here, you’ll find vestiges of the once supreme Mayan civilisation. Sites replete with temples and pyramids festooned with sacred carvings were, once abandoned, swallowed up by a rapacious jungle but are now gradually being revealed. There’re all rather Indiana Jones. You’ll visit the best known sites, Chichén Itzá, Uxmal and Tulum: all are easily accessible; your guides will explain the history while the children climb the pyramids. 

You’ll also be based at the lively Spanish colonial town of Mérida, visit graceful Spanish colonial towns with their friendly Mayan inhabitants. Street markets, restaurants of all types and entertainments flourish here. 

At your beach hotel base on the soft-sand Caribbean coast at family-friendly Playa del Carmen there is time to laze on the beach and take part in water-sports and visit nearby wildlife reserves.

What our experts say

My son’s words say it all  - walking and climbing the pyramids (at Chichen Itzá) reminded me of my PlayStation games and the stories I have read on the Egyptian pyramids, only better
