Top destinations for vacations with kids, a huge challenge for families with kids. Let’s list some places that are ideal for kids. Kilauea volcano’s lava flow on the island of Hawaii made global headlines for three consecutive months last summer. Now that the volcanic activity has stopped, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, the island’s most-popular attraction, has reopened and is offering new experiences unlike anywhere else in the world for 2019. Hawaii Forest and Trail’s new Volcano Unveiled tour showcases the historic events that changed the park-explore a private lava tube with yellow and gold microbial mats living on the cave walls. Adventurous families may want to zip-line in the park with KapohoKine Adventures or peddle around with Bike Volcano.
Scottsdale, Arizona – Scottsdale is a golf, tennis and spa mecca, and families are welcomed with open arms. The dry desert air works magic on winter-weary bones of all ages. The Westin Kierland Resort offers tweens and teens nonstop fun with the FlowRider, a machine that lets you pseudo surf in the desert. Giant swimming pools and numerous children’s programs are also on the menu.
This is an absolutely stunning stretch of sand – and my favorite beach in Thailand. It’s a 20 minute walk from the main “town” on Railay, but the path is fun and easy – a shaded mini-adventure, with caves to peek into along the way. More caves are found at the beach but these are accessed through the water and are fun for older kids to explore.
South Beach may be a playground for adults, but a few miles north lies paradise for the pint-sized. Acqualina is a sparkling, seaside beacon for families who want a low-key beach holiday with thoughtful programming for kids. Already known for its educational, marine biology-themed camp, the property is stepping up its aquatic offerings with a new activity (in partnership with EcoAdventures, a division of Miami Dade Parks) that explores sea turtles during the summer hatching season. Using sea turtle artifacts, shells, and a nest search along the shore, a naturalist expert will guide families through the life cycle to learn why the animals come to shore, what they eat, and how they spend their days. From $450 a night.
For our dutch guests : Vakantie met kind Cabo San Lucas, Mexico – Er is zoveel te doen in Cabo San Lucas in Baja California in Mexico, speciaal voor gezinnen. Kom tijdens het winterseizoen van dichtbij en persoonlijk met walvissen migreren van de Arctische naar de warme, kalme wateren rondom het schiereiland Baja. Je kunt zip-lining, rotsklimmen, zwemmen met dolfijnen en zelfs kamelen rijden in het dessert! We waren grondig verwend in het all-inclusive Grand Velas Los Cabos met zijn spa, zwembaden en aandacht voor detail. Een verblijf in het Grand Solmar Land’s End Resort zal u ook zonovergoten, ontspannen en goed gevoed achterlaten.
