Great Family Vacation Tips

Published by:


Taking a  vacation  with the whole  family  creates memories that will last a lifetime. Planning is essential to having an enjoyable  family   vacation  and it is important that there is something for everyone to do. Consider these  family   vacation  ideas to ensure a trip that everyone will love.

Tropical  vacations  are the perfect  vacation  for everyone. There is so much to see and do besides just the joy of relaxing on the beach. Stay at a family resort where there are activities for all ages, and activities for the whole family to participate in together. A family resort is ideal as there are other families and children enjoying the beach and the resort itself. It is a great way to connect with each other and to meet new people. Family resorts are often all-inclusive making it easy to meet up for meals as a group or to have meals separate. The kids will not need to worry about finding mom and dad when they are hungry or thirsty.

Beachfront properties are the most appealing accommodations because they eliminate the need for transportation to and from the resort to the beach. Older kids can enjoy going to the beach without having to rely on parents for transportation. This makes the trip even more enjoyable when there are no worries of where and when to meet up, especially if everyone wants to do something they enjoy.

Most tropical destinations offer many types of activities for the whole family including: snorkeling, diving, fishing, renting jet skis and parasailing. These activities generally cost more and are not included in the resort charges, but are well worth the additional money. These kind of activities create memorable experiences that the adults and children will cherish forever.

Tropical  vacation  s give everyone a chance to sit back, relax, and enjoy the beautiful weather and beaches. A tropical climate seems to bring the whole family together, whether it be by breathtaking sightseeing or high flying parasailing.  Family   vacations  create an experience for the  family  to reconnect with each other without the need for cell phones, text messages, and emails.

Mexico, especially the Cancun area, and Mayan Riviera, an hour’s drive south of Cancun, is a popular place for  family  beach  vacations . The Mayan Riviera is one of the regions of Mexico – and the world- which offers the richest variety of landscapes and archaeological treasures including Mayan ruins, coral reef, snorkelling lagoons, and eco-theme parks such as Xcaret. Hotels, resorts, restaurants, and attractions throughout Mexico welcome families with open arms.


Jamaica is considered by many to be the most beautiful of all the Caribbean Islands and is one of the top  family-vacation  destinations in the Caribbean. Many of Jamaica’s resorts offer supervised children’s activities, babysitters, family discounts, and kid’s meals. Jamaica has an abundance of top all-inclusive chains including: Sandals Beaches, SuperClubs Breezes resorts and Club Med. There are also many other  family   vacation  options such as the Franklyn D. Resort in Runaway Bay, Jamaica, where  families  have their own  vacation  nanny during their stay.

Turks and Caicos

On a 12-mile stretch of satiny white-sand, Beaches Turks & Caicos is one of the premier family resorts on the island.With separate programs for infants, toddlers and teens, each is designed to give each age the activities they love. So when you’re off doing your thing, they’re off doing theirs. There are many other resorts to stay at this idyllic family beach destination


Home to the Atlantis Bahamas resort and many other excellent  family  resorts, there will not be a dull moment on your Bahamas  family   vacation . Blessed with the perfect location-less than 100 miles off the coast of Florida, the perfect climate- averaging a little over 75 degrees, and the perfect surroundings-crystal clear turquoise blue waters and pearly white beaches, the Islands of the Bahamas is the perfect destination for your next  family  beach  vacation .


A  Family  Hawaii  Vacation  has it all. Beautiful beaches, world-class golf, surfing, shopping, swimming, top notch hotels, condominiums, eco tours, national parks, warm weather, and cool ocean breezes. The four islands that are popular for a  family  Hawaii  Vacation  are Oahu, Maui, the Big Island and Kauai.


Florida is a popular family beach destination because the climate is warm year round, it is easy to get to, it offers good value for your money, there are endless options for sightseeing and attractions for you family depending on what area you are in, and the beaches in Florida are numerous. In addition to beach destinations and of course Walt Disney World, there are tons of other family outings including Universal Studios, Sea World, Bush Gardens and many more.

Don’t Forget Family Cruises

This is a very popular  family   vacation  option and my personal favorite. Cruises with kids offer great value, choice and freedom! There are a lot of misconceptions about cruising such as it is only for older people and not suited for families, it is too rigid, there is nothing to do, you’ll feel trapped, you’ll get seasick, it’s too expensive! All is these statements are false and could not be further from the truth. Bring your kids along on almost any cruise and they’ll have the time of their lives.
