Family trip to Merida with children. Ideas on where to go with your child

Mérida. Roman brigde Merida is a city whose first mention dates back to ancient times, which is reflected in numerous city attractions (for example, the Roman Amphitheater, aqueducts, thermae, the Temple of Diana). There are also sights reminiscent of Arab rule in Merida - for example, the Alcazaba Fortress. It's certainly worth exploring them together with children, thus introducing them to culture and history. Apart from that, in Merida, you can have a great family time visiting entertainment centers, museums, and parks.

The first place to explore with kids in the ancient city is Alquiler de Castillos Hinchables en Badajoz.

The park is small, however, it must be said that it is very cozy here, which is sure to please any family member. Another child-friendly entertainment center is called Way To Play. Here they can play a variety of games - climbing, building castles, playing ball. While the kids are busy, parents can have coffee or tea in peace and silence. It is also a great place to celebrate a child's birthday.
Together with small citizens, it'd be also interesting to visit Parque López de Ayala. The park is very beautiful and well-groomed, with two restaurants serving amazingly delicious meals on its territory. Walking in the shade of trees is a pleasure, and it is certainly worth trying. Besides, various events such as markets and fairs are often held here. Another interesting park - Parque de La Isla - is ideal for spending time with the whole family. Here you will find basketball and football grounds, playgrounds for the smallest ones, an ice rink, as well as bike paths. Despite the above entertainments, it is very quiet and comfortable here.

Parque de las VII Sillas is another park ideal for families with children. This is a great place for walking, breathing fresh air, and chatting with each other.

Children can also be taken to Don Tello Club de Golf where adults can introduce the kids to their favorite game and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere and green landscapes of the park together.
In Merida, it's worth pampering the kids with sweets they wouldn't be able to try anywhere else.

What about some delicious cakes? Welcome to La Piel del Oso and Café Joplin. The latter also serves delicious pies, muffins, and original desserts.
