Likely places to find kids to play with

We're bringing our 7-year-old down soon, and will be staying near the Nuevo area. I remember being bored on vacations with no playmates, so we'd like to take her places that other kids her age are likely to be at. Any recommendations?

We've been to PV & NV the previous four yrs with our then 5 ~ 9 yr old & he always had someone to play with at the hotel swimming pool. He's made tons of friends every time as he's very social. More than likely your 7 yr old will find friends around the pool.

There's at least one orphanage around. I think it's between the Alamo car rental office near the airport and the bug corona factory/outlet/whatever building (closer to NV than Alamo). We thought about going last time we were in PV, but ran out of time. Usually an orphanage has Casa de Hogar written somewhere on it.

Also, a lot of resorts have a kids club. We haven't sent ours to one, but they look like they do some cool stuff and I'd think there would be similarly aged kids there.

Good luck!

DC790, I've heard many favorable comments about the kids clubs at various resorts in Nuevo Vallarta, too. Or maybe you'll be staying in a condo?

If you would like to take your child to see the orphanage in nearby Bucerias, see www.manosdeamor.com and contact them before you go to take a tour.

Las Caletas Beach Hideaway has a special Kids Section which offers a Kids Adventure Park exclusively for kids 4-11 years of age.Supervised by an able staff your kids can play with others and enjoy face-painting,special kids zipline,ride donkeys and inter act with monkeys and other animals and the kids zoo. Parents can join in if they like or they can enjoy the wide variety of amenities available for adults at Las Caletas. Its a wonder someone did not think of this before and makes Las Caletas a great family tour for everyone. This beautiful location is also the sight for Rythmns of the Night. These tours are very popular in the high season so you may consider booking online(and saving some money) or visit your travel rep on your arrival.
