If you’re looking for somewhere to go with kids in Querétaro where they can play and have fun, then Piccolo Mondo Xtremo is the place to go.

Where To Go With Kids In Querétaro - Piccolo Mondo  Xtremo



What is it?


A place especially for children to play with their parents’ supervision and/or participation. It’s aimed mainly at 2 – 12 year olds, but there is also an area for babies and toddlers, and older kids will enjoy the more “extreme” attractions like the zip wire, sky walk and climbing wall.

Where is it?


It’s located inside the Uptown Juriquilla shopping mall in Juriquilla, Querétaro.  Piccolo Mondo is upstairs, next to the cinema.

How much is it?


Children from 2 a 12 years old: $165 pesos
Adults: $45 pesos


You have unlimited time to play provided you don’t leave.  Adults can go out and come back in again but at least one adult has to stay with the child.  Children must never be left unsupervised. Adults can also accompany their children in most of the activities if they wish.  Inside the play areas both children and adults have to wear socks but no shoes and there are various shoe cubbies outside the play areas.

What is there to do?


  • a sandpit with various toys.
  • a trampoline and a foam block pit.

Our experience 


We took Emma (aged nearly four and a half) one afternoon during the summer holidays.  It was reasonably busy but didn’t feel crowded and the noise level wasn’t too loud.  There was some music playing in the background but it wasn’t too intrusive.  What most caught her attention when we went in was the sand pit which is right next to the entrance and she wanted to go in there first.  Actually, she loved the sandpit so much she could easily have spent the whole time there and we had to convince her to go and explore the other areas too!  There are various toys in the sand pit such as buckets, spades, rakes, sieves, cups, etc for playing in the sand, all in good condition.

Next she spent ages on the trampoline – bouncing is probably one of her all-time favourite activities – and she clambered through the pit of foam blocks and her sock kept getting pulled off her foot.  We managed to persuade her to go to the top of the tubbing slope – I went with her – but she refused to sit in the sled and slide down, despite all the other children and even a very enthusiastic toddler sliding down the slope by themselves.  It wasn’t very fast but I guess it looked a bit too scary for her.

She did enjoy the downstairs part of the labyrinth with the ball pit and padded obstacles to climb over and crawl under. I couldn’t tempt her to go up further, though. Maybe next time she’ll get more intrepid.

Anyway, she loved it, even though there were lots of parts she was not quite brave enough to explore yet, and she was asking to go again.  When I asked her what her favourite part had been (I was expecting her to say the sandpit), she answered, “all of it!”

The verdict? 

Definitely worth visiting, and going back to.  It’s great fun and there’s something for a wide range of ages, from toddlers to older kids.  Even parents can get involved, playing with younger children in the play areas, or watching from close by.  Or you could relax with a drink or snack at one of the cafeteria tables while your kids get on with the serious business of playing.

  8. I love that they allow you to accompany your child everywhere, and that there are things for older children too! Our boy used to like this kind of place when he was younger, but now that he’s 11 most places unfortunately class him as ’too old’ x #KCACOLS

  16. That sounds like a really fun place to take the kids. My son would love it there. One thing I really miss since moving to Portugal is the lack of soft play centres like this for kids. We just don't have anything like it. Thanks for linking up to #wanderlustkids x
