Spend the summer with the kids in Barcelona at the Majestic Hotel & Spa. Strap on your helmets and hop on a scooter with the hotel’s unique program. Grab a backpack filled with water, snacks and an iPad loaded with maps and itineraries for a unique and active family tour. If your family is learning or fluent in Spanish, opt for the native language tour.

Inspire the kids to follow their dreams exploring a variety of opportunities with the My First Job program at Belmond Napasai in Koh Samui, Thailand. The luxury resort offers cooking lessons, Thai boxing, dancing and unique educational opportunities. Check out the family packages, tours and accommodations here.

Costa Rica is a luxury family destination, but goes a step further with a focus on wildlife and adventure at Nayara Resort, Spa & Gardens. The kids can zipline and explore waterfalls around the property, or head to the sloth sanctuary for an up-close look at some of the region’s most docile inhabitants.

Teens

Everything about the UXUA Casa Hotel & Spa in Trancoso, Brazil is picturesque. To say this 5-star resort is Instagram-worthy is an understatement and your teens will agree. Head to the Cultural Center, or Casa de Cultura, and watch local students practice the art of capoeira, a traditional Bahia sport, or join in. Capoeira blends martial arts, acrobatics and dance — add in some natural athleticism, and your kids may find their new favorite sport.

Available on select Ponant cruises from Rome to Athens, the Treasures of the Mediterranean World tour boasts the best of all things Greek and Italian mythology. Learn about the Roman and Greek gods and goddesses and see where the original Olympics competition took place — perfect for your budding history buffs, mythology fans and culture seekers.

All Ages

Napa Valley is world renowned for incredible wines, views and luxury stays. A wine tasting and sommelier discussion aside, this locale is ideal for families of all ages.

Stay at the Calistoga Ranch for a secluded, off-the-grid experience with the family, or stay at the Meritage Resort and Spa for an inclusive Napa experience. Pedal along the coast on bike tours with the family and take in the sweeping views of the Napa Valley Vine Trail. Hike along miles of trails and cool off with a dip in one of the many swimming holes of Bothe Napa Valley State Park. Peruse tours and availability for each resort, or check out more family-friendly activities here.
