Many resorts in Mexico offer promotions that allow kids to stay free in their parents' room. This can add up to big savings on a family vacation! Most kids stay free deals are for children under 12 staying with two paying adults, but there are some that you can take advantage of even if you're a single parent. Many of these special deals run through December, so if you're planning a family vacation to Mexico, be sure to take advantage of these promotions.
