Family Adventure Travel in Mexico

Mexico is a country packed with adventures for families. At Quivertree our focus is on the Yucatan Peninsula and Baja California. Arrival in Cancun is easy from almost anywhere, but we don’t stay there – rather we whisk you away to traditional and authentic locations, where you can learn about the local culture, eat the local food and stay in authentic local towns.

Active Adventures in Mexico

In Baja, our focus is on the natural world – go “glamping” on an island in the National Park, and discover the immense sea life that inhabits the coastal regions, as well as the extraordinary whale watching during the season.

Swim in cenotes – natural swimming holes that dot the region, where you can snorkel with freshwater fish, and even dive if you are certified to do so.

Mexican Culture

Discover long lost Mayan ruins still covered in jungle.

Get to know the real Mexico, by lodging in some of its most authentic towns and cities, rather than staying at an all-inclusive on the beach.

Beaches in Mexico

Mexico features an extensive coastline and is home to some of the most amazing beaches in the world.

Relax on the beach and read a book while the kids play or go on a snorkeling adventures in search of sea turtles.
