What are the best places to kayak in Mexico?

But Cancun, Cabo San Lucas, and Puerto Vallarta are some of the best places in the country to pick up a paddle and go kayaking with kids.

One of the main factors in their popularity is the incredible weather these coastal cities enjoy all year round. They enjoy almost endless sunshine, and their waters are warm and inviting.

What better place to kayak than the aquarium of the world? The Sea of Cortez earned this title because of its immense diversity of marine life. Take a trip out to one of the best kayaking trails in Mexico, and you can catch glimpses of dolphins and sea lions and a spot of whale watching on the Baja Peninsula.

One of the other main attractions is the Arch of Cabo San Lucas. This is a natural and spectacular rock formation millions of years old. Adding to the wonder it inspires, Los Cabos locals nicknamed it Land’s End.

Kayaking is an excellent activity for a family vacation. It’s low impact; you can take things at your own pace and share a boat with your children.

That means you can let them paddle as much, or as little, as they like. During your time on the water, you can stay close together to ensure they stay safe and have an amazing experience.

It is recommended that children aged eight and above find it easier to join in with the paddling, but younger children can come along, enjoy the ride and take in the sights as a passenger.
