Panama

Bring the family to Panama this summer for outdoor adventure, beautiful scenery and educational experiences. The nine-day tour takes your family through Central America’s lush rainforests, zip lining, hiking and observing the diverse region’s incredible wildlife.

 

Keep an eye out for monkeys lurking in the jungle before heading to the turquoise blue waters of the ocean for some surfing, snorkeling and relaxing on the beach. For more adventure, get out on the rapids, whitewater rafting with the whole family. Take to the choppy waters with varied levels of experience as the experts guide you through the experience for an invigorating ride.

 

The tour includes educational and cultural activities as well, such as an up-close look at the famous Panama Canal and a Friends Across Borders experience with the Emberá Tribe. Bring the kids for a visit with the local indigenous community, learning about the local culture, history of the tribe and modern lifestyle. The blend of sports, outdoor adventure and educational experiences make for an unforgettable summer vacation.

 

Azores

Located in the nine-island archipelago off the coast of Portugal, the Azores is home to a UNESCO World Heritage site, Azorean wine country and endless outdoor adventure — perfect for an active, but relaxing trip.

 

Kayak crater lakes with the kids, hike dormant volcanoes on Faial Island and go whale watching on São Miguel during the nine-day tour. The dense marine life and natural wonders of the Azores provides ample opportunity for unmatched beauty and unique adventure activities.

Between all the active tours and exercise, you’ll enjoy some downtime strolling through the vineyards of Azorean wine country and relaxing in natural hot springs.

 

Thailand

During an 11-day tour of Thailand, your family will uncover why it’s one of the most sought-after destinations in the world. Discover the magic of Thailand while flying though the jungle zip lining; sightseeing in the ornate, beautiful temples of Bangkok; and lounging on the beaches of Phuket.

Jaws will drop when kids see the Royal Grand Palace, a complex of more than 100 buildings — all completely handmade with gold leafing, gemstones and ornate designs.

 

Take in the culture of Chiang Mai while shopping, dining and exploring night markets, and snorkeling the idyllic waters of Phang Nga Bay in Phuket. One highlight, among so many, you and the kids will become mahouts, or elephant caretakers, for the day. Snap photos of the kids feeding and playing with elephants.
