    Wonderful natural playground/waterpark

    Reviewed 15 March 2018

    Las Estacas is a great place to explore with your kids. There are plenty of beautiful, clear, river paths to swim/snorkel. There are a few waterfalls, some diving platforms, and rope swings, as well as some children's waterpark activities. Food is available at a few restaurants, though you may bring your own food as well. We loved exploring at night before bed too. My only complaint is that the camping is a little expensive for what it is; it's a giant field with tents pitched in any random order. If it is crowded, the tents are only a few feet apart. They do have a group bonfire at night if your little ones stay up late enough.This is a personal opinion of a KiddieMundo user.

    Tips

    -Bring your snorkel, sunscreen, inflatable floating mattresses -Explore the grounds at night with your flashlight and look for moulting cicadas on the trees, coatimundis roaming the grounds, owls in the trees, frogs, and fireflies. -No dogs allowed.

    A nice introduction to camping for kids - or a fun hotel stay

    Reviewed 06 September 2017

    Las Estacas is located within about a 30 minutes drive from Cuernavaca, known as the city of "eternal spring" in Mexico (itself about an hour from Mexico City). The hotel part has two rooms per small cottage, about as comfortable as any 3-star hotel room. For a bit more adventure, bring a tent and sleeping bags and camp out in the large camping field. It's an easy introduction to camping for the kids, because porters will haul your gear and coolers from the car to the site and back - plus there are clean showers and bathrooms and a place with running water to clean your pots and plates after cooking out on the available grills (no need for a camp stove). Whether you stay in the hotel or a tent, bring swim clothes and snorkeling gear, because the well-landscaped river is incredibly clear and offers a great place to swim (and see the fish and fresh-water lobsters). There is also a rope swing to launch yourself into the river, several places to jump from a height of 6-10 feet into the water, and rafts to rent. Las Estacas charges a fee for all those who choose to camp rather than stay in the hotel, including kids. Young kids stay in the hotel free.This is a personal opinion of a KiddieMundo user.

    Tips

    Besides the chance to try camping in a safe and easy environment, Las Estacas offers a fun campfire experience for the kids. They lead a number of songs and games around the fire and then provide sticks and marshmallows to roast. Bring your own chocolate and graham crackers if you want s'mores. There is also a restaurant for those who don't want to cook out for all their meals - and the opportunity for those in the family who wish to camp to do so while others choose the hotel.
