With the busy summer travel season in full swing, many families are scoping out destinations for their next adventure. Baja California offers a multitude of family-friendly activities for people of all ages and interests. Here are three family-friendly places to visit while exploring the colorful and vibrant Baja California region.
Tijuana Cultural Center
Descubre Tijuana claims that this Tijuana institution is the perfect place to get acquainted with the beauty and culture of Baja California. The highlight of the center is the OMNIMAX cinema, offering a host of IMAX films in the 308-seat theater. The Museo de las Californias exhibit features over 200 pieces that tell the history of the Baja Peninsula. The pre-Hispanic style garden called Jardin Caracol features a variety of sculptures in a tranquil setting. Visitors of all ages will find something to enjoy at this comprehensive cultural center.
Playa Del Amore
Cabo Adventures claims that Playa Del Amore is great for sunbathing or taking a dip in the water to cool off. Because of the calm waters, Playa Del Amore is an ideal place to frolic in the sand and the surf with small children. Also known as Lover’s Beach, Playa Del Amore is famous for its amazing snorkeling opportunities. The beach is accessible only by water taxi so be sure to plan ahead. However, the boat tour out to the sandy beach is part of the entire experience. If you are lucky, you may even see dolphins along the way.
Parque Nacional Sierra San Pedro Mártir
While the beach is the main attraction in Mexico, there are plenty of other outdoor recreational opportunities for those land lovers in your family. The Parque Nacional Sierra San Pedro Mártir mountain region is home to the famous Pichaco del Diablo. As the highest peak in Baja rising over 10,000 feet into the air, the Pichaco del Diablo features a popular six-mile round trip hike to El Altar. This park also boasts an abundance of wildlife viewing opportunities, including animals such as the California condor or bighorn sheep. The park’s Observatorio Astronómico Nacional offers high-powered deep-space telescopes so that you can gaze at the stars above.
With so many family-friendly activities, a trip to Baja California is the ultimate family adventure. From relaxing on the beach to taking in the sights and sounds of this vibrant culture, the trip is sure to create lasting memories for everyone in your family.
