AURELIE’S TRIP TO YUCATAN, MEXICO.
8 NIGHTS/3 STOPS
Culture, farniente and beach time!
We love to travel but with our four kids from 3 to 9, it has been a while since we hadn’t make an itinerant trip! Yucatan was the perfect destination for a first family trip. Everyone loved it! We wanted to share with our children exciting moments of culture, nature discovery and beach fun. The stop at Merida was great to have a real contact with Mexican culture and Tulum was the perfect place to jump in the waves for the kids and drink cocktails for the parents! We organized this eight days trip by ourselves, asking advice to a Mexican friend and spending hours on the internet.

GOOD TO KNOW
October is the rainy season. A lot of restaurants are closed in Tulum during that period because it is the low season.
We recommend to take a guided tour for the Mayan Sites.
It is easy to visit the Uxmal archeological site when you are staying in Merida. It will take you 1 hour (86 km) to go there. Therefore, plan ahead an extra night in Merida if you want to visit Uxmal.
After many archeological temple visits, you can take the kids for a half day trip to Xcaret amusement park. It is only 45 min from Tulum (60 km)
Make sure you buy a detailed road map.
This is a perfect destination for families, even with small kids. It’s easy and safe.
