In most of Mexico, Children’s Day (El Dia del Niño) is celebrated on April 30th. The day was created, in 1925, to “celebrate children”. It was believed that having a day to honor children would cause parents to take better care of their kids. Today, the day is filled with parties, games, piñatas, and food.
In honor of this day, Cancun businesses are offering special promotions or have special parties planned for the little ones.
Coco Bongo, the famous nightclub, will have a special party for children. The event will be held on April 15th, from 6-9pm. The cost is $200 MXN, per person.
