Mexico City has Chapultapec Park, which is perfect for spending a family friendly day. This park has a large zoo, which we’re sure everyone in the family will find delightful. It also has pony rides for the younger kids and rowboats for the bigger kids. The whole family can also enjoy biking around the park. Conveniently, there are several rentals there and the price is reasonable.
If you’re looking for entertainment, you can watch weekend concerts where performers include acrobats and pole dancers. This is definitely not your usual singing and dancing!
Mexico City also has the El Museo Del Nino or The Children’s Museum. It’s a site where kids can both learn and enjoy anything from History to Science. The museum is very much hands-on and kids are allowed to touch the items on display. The more they explore, the better they learn all about it.
There is also the National History Museum for the bigger kids. This place is an actual castle once the home of Emperor Maximilian.
Visit the Ciudad de los Niños or City of Children, where kids dress up and pretend to be firefighters or bakers and actually do their service to earn their keep. It’s one way the city is helping orphaned kids.
