Family vacation in Mexico during May is an important time in Mexico for several cultural reasons. If you are planning a family vaction in Mexico this May, you don´t want to miss these tips to find out about local celebrations in Mexico.
1- Cinco de Mayo
The biggest Mexican Mayday attraction is undoubtedly “Cinco de Drinko.” Contrary to popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexican Independence Day. By contrast, it celebrates the victory from the Battle of Puebla in 1862. That doesn’t mean however, that it’s not widely celebrated internationally. Around Mexico, you´ll find street festivals, deals in local markets, and lots of tequila. For example, at each El Dorado Resort by Karisma in Riviera Maya, expect photo opps with sombreros, donkey sightings, and cold margaritas on deck!
2- Mother’s Day
Whether she’s mom, mum, or mami, there’s no greater leading lady in your life than your mother. Most importantly, celebrate family vacation in Mexico this Mother´s Day by doing something she loves. Above all else, make her feel special with an unforgettable trip to Mexico. She will be talking about for years to come! Whether it’ dinner reservations in Playa del Carmen´s swanky 5th Avenue, a painting class at a local studio, or simply a weekend getaway to the Riviera Maya, whichever option you choose, just make sure to show her some love.
3- Dia del Niño
Technically speaking, Children´s Day is not in May. It actually falls on 31st April but rolls into the Mexican “puentes” of May so it makes our list! Resorts that cater especially to families with kids, like Generations Riviera Maya, by Karisma are offering a lot of special attractions for the month of May this year.
4- Take a Memorial Day Weekend Trip
After months of lockdown, you definitely deserve some family time away. Luckily, Karisma Hotels have some fantastic deals you can take advantage of. Plus, flights to Mexico are a steal right now. Long live long weekends!
