Tropical Family Vacation

Timeless Family Fun!

Sunny Seaside
7 Days of Family Fun Adventures
(Trip starts and ends in the city of Veracruz, México)
There is nothing like an exciting adventure vacation to create lasting family memories. Your travel photo album will be full of fun exciting images of your kids ziplining over a river, swimming in natural pools below tropical waterfalls, watching monkeys in their natural habitat, whitewater river rafting, riding on ATVs down the beach, and wrestling with a live crocodile in the water. OK, just kidding about the crocodile wrestling.
Experiencing a different culture can be a great eye-opener for your children to begin to understand that there is not always a shopping mall and a McDonalds nearby. Throughout this entire trip, you and your family will be traveling with a local bilingual guide who will lead you on each activity and share his or her knowledge of the history, culture, and places you will visit. Remember – on your family trip to the state of Veracruz, you will not encounter many other foreign vacationers once you get outside the city of Veracruz. It will be a true México cultural immersion experience.

7 Days of Family Fun Adventures
(Trip starts and ends in the city of Veracruz, México)
Day 1:
Arrival in the city of Veracruz
Your bilingual trip guide will be waiting for you upon your arrival at the Veracruz Airport. If time permits, he/she will take you on a tour to see some of the city sights. Your family will stay this evening in a local hotel located just north of the city in the small seaside town of Chachalacas.
Day 2:
ATV Beach & Sand Dunes Ride / Sand Board Surfing / Beach Time
This morning you can simply relax and enjoy a leisurely breakfast with your family. Then you may want to take a stroll along the ocean and unwind from your travel the day before. Later, it will be time for your first fun outdoor activity in Veracruz. Can you picture this? You are zooming down long stretches of beach and up and over tall sand dunes on an ATV (4-wheel all terrain vehicle). Your younger children will double up with an adult so everyone can experience the fun of cruising down the beach with the Gulf of México waves lapping up at your tires. Don’t worry if you have never ridden one before as your professional guide will show you everything you need to know to operate your ATV. These massive dunes are also a great location for exciting sand board skiing or sand surfing. What a blast! Even your youngest will have fun sliding down the sand dunes on their sand board. Again, you will overnight in this small town. (B,L,D)
Day 3:
Whitewater River Rafting / Zipline Ride over a River / Veracruz City Tour
Time to check out of your hotel and get ready for another day of outdoor adventures! The state of Veracruz is known as the “Whitewater River Rafting Capital” of México. The tropical riverside town of Jalcomulco will be your home base for a day of wet and wild class 2 & 3 white-water river rafting. You and your children will also get to experience the thrill of flying high over the river on a zipline ride. Later, you will travel to the city of Veracruz where your guide will get you checked into your new hotel. Later, he will lead your family on a walking tour of the city. Especially in the evening, the central square comes alive with local people, musicians, and vendors. It will also be a great place to have dinner at one of the outdoor restaurants located right in the heart of all this activity. (B,L,D)

The Coast of Mexico

Waterfall

Wonderful Waterfalls

Day 4:
Huge Waterfall / Lake Boat Ride / Nature Reserve / Monkeys
After breakfast, you will journey to the southern part of the state to the tropical lakeside town of Catemaco. On your way, you will stop to see the massive waterfall used in the movie, Apocalypto. It is impossible to get real close without getting sprayed. Think of it as the “Niagara Falls” of Veracruz. Continuing on to Catemaco, you will check in at a hotel very close to the lake. In the afternoon, you will have the opportunity to explore Lake Catemaco by boat, visit an eco-nature reserve, and to see monkeys that live on the island lakes. The evening is free to relax and explore the town. (B,L,D)

Day 5:
Scenic Road Trip around the Lake Catemaco / Jungle Hike / Swim under Tropical Waterfalls
This morning your family will enjoy the lush green tropical scenery as you travel partway around one of México’s largest lakes to a small village. A native from this village will lead everyone on a jungle hike through the forest. You and your kids will have the opportunity to swim and play in the crystal clear pools found below the waterfalls you will discover on your hike. On a hot tropical day, this is definitely the place to be. Later, you will return to Catemaco and your hotel. (B,L,D)
Day 6:
ATV Beach & Sand Dunes Ride / Veracruz City Tour / Farewell Dinner
After breakfast, you will check out of your hotel and head back to the city of Veracruz for an afternoon of fun air conditioned indoor adventure. The famous Veracruz Sea Aquarium is the largest of its kind in all of Latin America. Your kids will love watching sharks swim right over their head, view sea turtles up-close, and laugh at the antics of the dolphins as they frolic in their own huge tank. In the evening, your family will have a farewell dinner at a nice restaurant in the city with your tour guide to celebrate the conclusion of a great trip. Overnight in the city of Veracruz. (B,L,D)
