For the rest of the year vacations may look a little different, with social distancing mandates in effect, off-limit destinations and the possibility of having to quarantine before or after a trip. With all this in mind as you start planning your vacation, consider Mexico — it’s close to the United States, open to visitors and home to many destinations where you can enjoy a secluded stay.
One such destination, Las Brisas Acapulco, situated along the Pacific Ocean, is open and ready. The resort boasts several two-bedroom suites, as well a three-bedroom suite offering plenty of seclusion and even a private pool.
For families looking for a two-bedroom suite, check out La Cascada and La Encantada; both suites boast stunning views of the Pacific Ocean. Each suite also provides plenty of space for a family (up to six), offering one bedroom with a king-sized bed and another with two double beds. The space also includes two bathrooms, a common/living room, a dining area and a deck with a private pool and Jacuzzi.
Villa Ramona, the three-bedroom suite, offers plenty of room and space for a family of eight. The massive terrace offers great views of Acapulco Bay and space for family dining. In addition to the bedrooms, the suite also includes a living room, a dining area and a private pool.

Before you leave, make sure to visit the Pink Walk of Fame to see what Hollywood stars visited the resort.
As ecotourism and responsible travel become more popular, destinations look for ways to promote their rural and natural areas and preserve local ways of life. Agritourism — staying in farms or rural houses — is perfect for family travel, offering a chance for children to meet and interact with local people. It is not only a highly sustainable form of tourism, but also a more relaxing vacation compared to trips trudging through cities with children in tow.
