Christmas on the beach
Thinking about all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season could stress you out...even in July. Wouldn't it be nice to feel like you actually had a break during your time off? How great would it be to feel refreshed and recharged upon returning to work in January? Wouldn't true quality time with family be so much better than cleaning, running errands, and trying to avert chaos from ensuing?
We might just have the resolution to these issues, and it might just come with the bonus of a suntan. We suggest celebrating the holidays with TRAVEL.
What better way to connect with your family than taking a trip together! Here are some suggestions of Christmas time destinations for you and yours:
Finding a tree frog in Costa Rica
Central America
November through late April are considered the prime months to visit Central America. These months are considered Central America's dry season. Therefore, if you are looking for some undisturbed time on the beach and a little less wetness during your rainforest experience, this is the time to travel. This season conveniently coincides almost perfectly with the colder months of winter in the United States. It also means that the holiday season falls within the best time to visit the region! In December, the landscape is still green from the rains of months prior, but the sky is clear making for a beautiful backdrop for a vacation.
Adventure Life offers trips to Costa Rica, Belize, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and Panama. Similar details regarding when to travel also apply for Mexico.

Galapagos
Although there is never a bad time to visit the Galapagos, December through May are desirable months to travel. During these months, the water and the air are warmer making swimming and snorkeling more appealing. Light, short rain showers can occur but this is actually the sunniest time of the year on the Enchanted Islands. This period of time is also the breeding season for land birds, so it is a great opportunity to watch some unusual mating rituals. If you are interested in turtles, this is the time you want to be in the Galapagos. You will be able to watch sea turtles nesting on the beaches!
Your family's trip can be tailored to personal interests, preferences, and the level of activity desired. The possible combinations of activities are endless, but here are some examples of general options:

Leisurely activities:
Nature hikes, dolphin & manatee tours, chocolate & coffee plantation visits, turtle conservation, bird & wildlife watching, indigenous community visits, fishing, spa experience, beach lounging, culinary classes, cultural site tours
Cultural and wildlife encounters in Panama
Active excursions:
Kayaking, snorkeling, surfing, whitewater rafting, canopy zipline, waterfall rappelling, horseback riding, biking, trekking, SCUBA diving, camping
Whitewater rafting the Sarapiqui
Now is a great time to start the process of planning a December trip. You can get ahead of the game to find the perfect adventure! Here's to happy trip planning and happy holidays, from the Adventure Life family to yours!
