TRAVELING WITH CHILDREN 


Traveling with children  can be   a wonderful experience , if  you ( and they ) are prepared  for   this adventure in advance. Most likely  your trip  will involve  a flight , which is normally a 2 or 3 hour flight  without  connections to come to  Cancun or Los  Cabos, México.

One of the best  practices ( if they are  old enough ) is to  let them know  about the trip  and that  they  will  fly  to visit  a great destination in another country . Show them a map of where Mexico is located , for example and show them pictures of the beach, the hotel, the city. 

Is  is highly recommended to  provide them with  a backpack ( the school backpack can be used for this purpose if they have one )  as they feel more independent. Ask them to  bring some of their favorite toys with them. Include  markers or crayons, coloring books or  sheets of paper ,candies, crackers  and other goodies, perhaps  a new toy  to surprise them during the flight  and a sweater (as airplanes can get cold sometimes) On the plane, let them sit next to the window and  tell them stories  about the clouds, the sky, the land, the whole adventure. During take off and landing, offer them a candy  so their ears will not block. Its sad to see ( and hear ) a  child having a  terrible moment due to the  pain it causes. They will get excited and you  will also start enjoying this trip  before  you even get to your 
destination.

For the  youngest ones

 

If  you are traveling with babies or toddlers,  make sure  you bring  a blanket  and a sweater, additional clothing,  enough  diapers but most important, milk , juice or water and  baby food including baby snacks. Try to get them sleep  during the flight . It is a  great moment for all of you  to relax but if this  does not work ,  entertain them with toys, crayons but also  feel free to move around the plane whenever this is possible for you as  most babies prefer movement  to get distracted .

In addition,  feel free to contact the  airline you are flying with to find  out more useful information and saftey travel  procedures for children.
