Ixtapa with Katie

Trip Location: Club Med Ixtapa

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe Club Med Ixtapa is beautiful! Everything was always so clean, organized and comfortable. The grounds were kept so beautiful at all times, including the beach. It is lush and mountainous, absolutely stunning. The food is mainly buffet, but having said that, it was the best food I have ever had on a Mexican vacation. It was fabulous!

This is a very comprehensive resort destination for families as they have programs for all ages. This allows the adults some free time, and the children can have the time of their lives.

There is the baby club for 4mos – 2yrs. Amazing care and they have thought of everything. There is an extra charge for this. There is the Petit Club Med – 2-4yrs of age. Also a charge Then there is a Mini Club Med – 4-11yrs of age and is included in the cost of your holiday.


On top of all of these options – they have the pajama club at night at a very small fee.

My daughter would not go to the mini club on her own, so I went with her so that she did not miss out on the children’s activities. This allowed me to see first hand how fabulous these children’s clubs are and how attentive the club med staff are with your children.
When considering the time of year to visit Mexican resort destinations, absolutely pay the extra money and travel during the cooler months and when the direct/non stop flights are operating. This destination is a family destination, and travelling with small children through LAX is just too stressful for everyone. It is also too hot and humid during the summer/early fall to enjoy all the activities the resort offers.
As suggestions for souvenirs, there’s tequila of course, and if you have a daughter, you must bring back a beautiful Mexican dress!
Finally, don’t forget to pack your sun-screen, bathing suit and hat. Nothing else required!
