It’s not easy choosing a holiday destination that both your grandparents and your four-year-old are going to rave about. However, at the southernmost tip of Baja Sur California, Mexico, there is one place that might just have what it takes.
Los Cabos is the type of destination that is all about what you make it. Whether you prefer a jam-packed itinerary or a day that consists of absolutely nothing other than soaking up the sun, Los Cabos is the ultimate destination for families of all ages. Here is why this sunny spot in Mexico is the best holiday option if you have a wide age gap in your travel group.
Kids Giving the younger ones a great holiday is centred around one thing: entertainment. As long as there is something to do and someone to play with, the kids will be just fine. Luckily enough, the resorts in Los Cabos are equipped with some of the most remarkable pools. Some resorts even have up to five pools to choose from. If you’re travelling during holiday season, it is likely there will be many other children playing in the area to buddy up with your kids.
If your child isn’t the biggest fan of the water, make sure the resort you’re staying at has a kids centre – many of them do! This is another great way to ensure your child is entertained and has a way to play with other kids on their holiday.
