According to Questex’s 2017 Mexico Family Travel Focus sales guide, family travel to Mexico is booming – so much so that the uptick is changing the hotel scene to attract more families. The sales guide provides insights into how travel suppliers are delivering enhanced family travel experiences, from upgraded kid’s clubs to on-premise water parks. Plus, the travel planner previews nearly 50 family-friendly hotels and resorts.

A comprehensive resorts report highlights top accommodations in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico City, Los Cabos, Cancun, Cozumel and the Riviera Maya. One major trend in lodging is a shift from three-star hotels to five-star properties.

“There’s more of a demand for upscale and luxury. The fact that Boomers are now taking their grandchildren has a lot to do with that,” reports Jack E. Richards, CEO of Pleasant Holidays.
