This Summer’s Top Family Travel Destinations

Summer is peak travel time for families, with the kids out of school and the weather a little more amenable to those traveling with small children. However, gone are the days where most families just head to the beach or take a big family trip to the lake.

Travel to Madrid with the Family and Find Activities to Keep Everyone Happy!

If life were a city, it’d be Madrid. Sometimes it can be quite the challenge to find a destination just right for the whole family. Different tastes and ages make agreeing on where to go seem impossible. Unless, of course, the destination you have in mind is Madrid. With all of its new immersive museums, musicals, soccer stadiums and monuments like Royal Palace, anyone who suggests coming to the capital is sure to get a unanimous yes!

Travel Outside the Box With UnCruise

Cruising is a fun way to enjoy an all-inclusive vacation with the family — you get to visit exotic locations, be entertained by on-ship entertainment and enjoy an endless supply of world-class food. But, as modern cruise ships have evolved into floating cities, the focus seems to have drifted away from the thrill of adventure and more toward which ships can offer the most exciting amenities. Water slides, rock climbing walls and zip lines have taken center stage,  making it all too easy to forget about the actual destination.

Family Adventures

Some families like vacations to include a little adventure. Others like trips to have big, bold, capital letter ADVENTURES the kids talk about for years, the friends ask about the second they see you and your family relives through photos and stories. These intrepid families may seek out these experiences on their own but some prefer to combine an element of practicality to their thrill seeking and find companies who’ve built relationships with locals, constructed the contraptions to hurl them through the sky safely and researched the area to bring it all to life between your laughter and screams. The following two such companies, one in Costa Rica, Diamante Eco Adventure Park, and the other in Mexico, AllTourNative, combine sustainability, cutting-edge environmental stewardship and the practice of bolstering the living conditions of the native population around them.

Villa Manzu: A Personally Tailored Adventure Among Friends

Costa Rica’s northwestern Pacific Ocean region has emerged as one of the most desirable destinations for families and wedding parties. This corner of Central America boasts a perfect amalgam of dry and sunny weather conditions, birding and wildlife encounters, safety and properties offering activities for different ages and interests. While top-tier resorts such as the Four Seasons have thrived, Villa Manzu, which means “friend” in the Chorotegan language, elevates a stay in this magnificent locale by offering up the entire eight-suite, 30,000-square-foot property for a private, all-inclusive vacation for groups of 14 up to 22 people.
