Traveling as a family is a great opportunity to spend quality time together away from hectic schedules that tie up our everyday lives. It can provide children with unique learning experiences and inspire young minds to understand, respect, and appreciate other cultures and environments. Take the children to meet whales in Iceland, relax on a cruise to the Greek Islands, or indulge in a family safari in Africa. Whether you’re traipsing through mountains in Alaska or ziplining over the rainforests of Costa Rica, seeing the world is always more fun when you’re with the people you love the most. Treat the family to an unforgettable vacation tailor-made to your interests by Adventure-Life. Reach out to our travel experts now.

Tips for Choosing a Family Vacation Destination

Choose an adventure as a family. Before making a final decision on your destination, talk to your kids and ask them question — no matter how old they are! Do they want to swim at the beach and swim with fishes? Or do they prefer to see lions and elephants? Show them pictures and talk about what you are hoping to experience. Discuss potential challenges, too, such as people who don't speak their language, strange foods, long walks, unscheduled time, etc.

Determine your budget. Traveling can be expensive, especially for large families. To save money, pick a destination that's not too far or accommodations where you can cook meals instead of eating out daily. An all-inclusive cruise or tour is also a good option for travelers who don't want to stress out over their budget on the trip.

Research the area. Make it a family project to learn about the country you will be traveling to. Encourage children to read books and/or watch films before the trip. Help your children think up questions that they would like to ask while they are there.

Consider health precautions. Contact your pediatrician to find out minimum age recommendations for suggested immunizations. Don't forget to discuss any specific health concerns for your child that might be aggravated by the stresses of overseas travel. Pack a basic first-aid kit.

Packing Tips for Family Vacations

Pack entertainment. Allow children to pack their favorite book, portable game, or tablet to keep them entertained during long flights or airport layovers. While toys add extra weight to the luggage, having their favorite toys with them gives children a sense of comfort and normalcy on the road.
Bring a basic first-aid kit. It doesn’t have to be all-encompassing, but it should have the essentials: bandages, mosquito repellant, antihistamines, pain killers, and anti-diarrhea medication, among others.
Pack appropriately for your activities and the weather. Packing light makes traveling much easier, so bring only what you need for your family vacation. If you’re going on a tropical beach vacation, you don’t need heavy jackets!
Make extra copies of all important documents. It can be difficult to keep track of everything, especially when traveling with the entire family. A backup of all documents are a must, including passports, birth certificates, reservations, and others. Keeping digital copies is also a good idea.
Let every family member carry a personal carry-on bag. Yes, even the little ones! Letting them pick what goes in their bag helps limit the toys they want to take on vacation — and it’s a great way to give them some responsibility at an early age.
