    1. Because it is a destination visited frequently by families from all over the world, it is totally accessible and the preparations for the trip are not complicated.
    2. The minor child must be accompanied by his father, mother, or whoever is exercising legal representation.
    3. Children over 12 years old must present their identity card, in good condition and current. Minor children, whose age ranges between 0 and 11 years, must present the birth certificate issued by the Civil Registry and their current passport (minimum 6 months).
    4. If you are a tourist, it is essential that you have the round trip ticket for each member of the family.
    5. Children under 12 years have a 25% discount on domestic flights, while children under 2 years do not pay for tickets; that is, they fly for free (since they do not occupy seats).
    6. On city buses, all children over 3 years old pay their full ticket.
    7. If you have children under 5, be sure to request a child seat when renting a vehicle. With this, you will be complying with the current safety regulations.
