Are you ready for an exciting yet relaxing, safe, fun family vacation in Baja California Sur, Mexico? Why not bring the kids and grandparents, as well?
Multigenerational travel is becoming more and more popular, as families seek to share unforgettable experiences with their immediate and extended family. Finding an activity, let alone a vacation that works for multiple generations can be challenging. But, with so many choices in Baja California, you will easily find attractions to please everyone: from excitement to relaxation, and all points in between. With its close proximity to the U.S. and ease of access, Baja is a perfect choice for family travel.
RED Sustainable Travel offers outdoor activities that are well-suited to parents, grandparents and kids of all ages. Family members can take advantage of the beautiful, calm environment and learn to kayak and explore the mangrove estuaries, looking for wildlife while learning all about this important eco-system. There are several shallow bays where children can wade into the warm water, while parents and grandparents relax on a fine stretch of sandy beach. Want to help with local conservation efforts? The area also offers an extraordinary educational experience for young and old, including hands-on learning about local conservation efforts with turtles. For the wildlife adventure of a lifetime, get actively involved in the catching, tagging, and weighing of the turtles, before releasing them back into the sea. And, in winter and spring, it’s whale season! In February and March, visit Magdalena Bay to see the California gray whales that migrate here for their mating season. You can witness the whales up close in the sheltered bays where they teach their calves everything they need to know before heading out into open water. This is truly one of the most memorable experiences a family can share together.
Enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner on your own secluded beach, with delicious meals prepared by the renown local chef. Dine on fresh, local cuisine such as chocolate clams, ceviche made from the morning’s catch, homemade salsas and hand tossed tortillas. Take a cooking lesson with the chef and return home with fabulous recipes as memories of an incredible gastronomical journey.
After dinner, relax and enjoy pleasurable evenings with glorious sunsets and perhaps a few whales and dolphins swimming by to bid you goodnight.
Visitors of all ages will enjoy Baja California’s warm-weather natural playground. Join RED Sustainable Travel on your next holiday and find out why this is one of the best areas in Mexico to visit with kids – and grandparents!
