There’s no reason to shiver your way through the holidays this month. Family travelers can escape to Mexico for the season with family-friendly Christmas offerings at Velas Resorts in Los Cabos, Puerto Vallarta, and beyond.

Depending on the resort you book, activities range from visits from Santa (in some instances, he arrives via helicopter or parachute!) to holiday movies, caroling to decorating gingerbread cookies. You can also book suites decked out for the holidays, so there’s no need to miss the Christmas tree back home. And, if you’d prefer, you can even decorate the tree with ornaments you and your family make during your stay. If you’re spending actual Christmas morning at select resorts, you can also arrange for pre-wrapped gifts to be delivered to your suite.

 

 

Of course, during the holidays, the kiddos can also enjoy the ample programming available to young travelers beyond festive special events. Teens enjoy their own lounges at Velas Resorts properties, where programming ranges from dance classes to karaoke. Kids clubs offer age-appropriate activities for even younger travelers.

 

Considering an adults-only getaway this season? If so, enjoy specials on golf and holiday activities, like Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve dinners and celebrations.
