A guest room at Club Med Ixtapa Pacific in Mexico

We confess: This Mexican resort had us the minute we heard about its flying trapeze and circus lessons ... tightrope walking, anyone? While the Club Med franchise was once associated with the single life, these days its focus is families. Among the all-inclusive offerings are four kids' clubs accommodating ages four months to seventeen years. There's a baby corner in the main restaurant for folks with infants, and Sirena is a special dining venue for ages two to eleven, serving fun, balanced meals. As for those children who want to get hands on in the kitchen, the resort has a Petit Chef program. Additional options for little ones are beginner classes in wall-climbing, archery, sailing and more, while mom and dad can enjoy spa treatments, tennis and cocktails in a variety of lounges. Tucked between the Sierra Madre Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, the resort includes family suites in its choice of hacienda-style guest rooms.
