Budget

Families looking to travel on a budget this summer have a few package options to choose from. Keep your eye on deals specifically geared toward families where kids can stay and eat free or where you receive a discount for a family of four or more. Be choosey as you’re likely to have quite a few last-minute booking options and deals available, like the Rosewood Puebla’s new summer package.

Whether visiting the area or a local, Rosewood’s summer package offers an idyllic escape for the summer, even on a budget.

Famous for its colonial architecture, colorful beauty, authentic cuisine and traditions, Puebla is a fun and culturally enriched destination for families. Located 75 miles southeast of Mexico City, Puebla was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1987, and it’s easy to see why.

Over the years, Puebla has become world-renowned for its vibrant tile work, local festivities and culinary mastering of mole. Travelers and families that enjoy cultural flare and history will have more than 365 churches and 2,600 historic sites to choose from.

Once in the city, find your way to the Rosewood for a minimum two-night stay, including free meals for guests up to 11 years old. Kids eat free at any one of the hotel’s restaurants and there are quite a few.

As a city founded on cuisine and tradition, food is also a vital part of the Rosewood. Dive into traditional bites of the Puebla region with chalupas, chiles and, of course, mole. With a blend of modern European techniques, French, Spanish and Lebanese influences mixed with the regional cuisine and the traditions of Puebla, foodie families are in for an experience. Pasquinel Bistrot expands on family-style dining with an open kitchen so guests can see how the sausage is made — literally.

For something more casual, guests opt for the street-side dining of Café Azul Talavera enjoying small plates and local wine.

Enjoy Bar Los Lavaderos with the older kids and taste-test regional spirits in a historic setting. Located in a 19th-century venue overlooking historic stone basins where Pueblan women used to meet to wash clothes and socialize, you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to a simpler time.

Don’t forget to take advantage of the Rooftop Bar for the refreshing breeze and stunning views of the Popocatepetl and Iztaccíhuatl volcanoes. Enjoy Mexican tapas and margaritas in a relaxing setting.

Get out on the town and visit local shops, cafés and historical sites including the famous Cantona and Cholula, home to the world’s largest pyramid.

Book early and save with 50 percent discounts on a second room — one for you, one for the kids — and breakfast for two at Café Azul Talavera included. With Rosewood’s summer package offering free breakfast for you, free meals for the kids and the buy-one, get-one half-off deal on your rooms, you can easily enjoy Puebla on the budget.
