Traveling with a baby to the Riviera Maya


We will discuss the case of families traveling with small children in the Riviera Maya. When to come, what to do and what equipment to bring to travel with a baby in the Riviera Maya?

Provide equipment

If your child is not old enough to walk well, we recommend that you bring a stroller or a Kangaroo bag. Keep in mind that it is hot in the Riviera Maya and your child will get tired more easily. You can visit Mayan ruins like Chichen Itza, Tulum or Coba without difficulty with a stroller. If you have the strength and your child is still small, the kangaroo bag is also a very good option that allows more flexibility, especially at the beach.

Rent baby equipment in the Riviera Maya

It is not always easy to take a lot of equipment for your child on the plane. A few baby equipment rental companies have sprung up in the Riviera Maya. This service is top notch because they deliver everything you need to your hotel reception even before you arrive. You can rent a stroller, a crib, a kangaroo bag, a bottle warmer and much more. A quick google search will allow you to find an agency offering this type of service.

Favor cool periods

On the Riviera Maya, the weather is fine all year round, I invite you to read our article in order to know when to go to the Riviera Maya …

Regarding a trip with your child, if he can not stand the heat too much, choose the months from December to March. In summer it is very hot and humid, if you come during this period make sure you have an air conditioner in the bedroom so that your child can sleep well.

What excursions to do with a baby in the Riviera Maya?

If you are going to travel with a baby to the Riviera Maya, know that you will have a lot of activities to do. As we said before, you can easily visit the ruins of Tulum, take a trip to Chichen Itza or Coba with a stroller. You can also visit islands like Holbox or Isla Mujeres, be sure to pack essentials to cover your child from the sun.

In reality, only the boat activities like Sian Ka’an or Rio Lagartos, could be problematic with your child, because they are done by speed boat.
