3 Family-Friendly Spring Break Destinations

Can’t wait to get away and enjoy some sun and sand? Take your vacation to the next level this year with three destinations perfect for the adventurous family or even those sticking to a budget.

The Galapagos 

These islands are famous for unique and fearless wildlife, much of which was inspiration for Charles Darwin’s Theory of Natural Selection. Giant tortoises, sea lions, penguins, marine iguanas and different bird species can all be seen and approached.

Why it’s family friendly: It’s fascinating and educational with a lot to see and learn for all ages.

Costa Rica

More than a vacation destination, it is an interactive sensory experience. The country is bestowed with an intense array of attractions—majestic volcanoes, misty cloud forests, stunning river valleys, and hundreds of beaches along the Pacific and Caribbean coasts.

Why it’s family friendly: You’ll find lots of adventure in a peaceful and family-friendly culture.

Riviera Maya, Mexico

With all-inclusive resorts like Club Med, the Riviera Maya is to be enjoyed by all, the young and the old and all in between. Soft, white sand hosts treasures offered up by the sea. And on land, explore the temples and legends or the subterranean rivers flowing swiftly from pool to pool of fresh water.

Why it’s family friendly: Multigenerational families enjoy all-inclusive resorts with great amenities and activities and travel is made easy with available direct air.

Tips to remember when traveling with your family:

  • Book in advance. The best deals and travel times are available early.
  • Get recommendations from the hotel concierge on local eateries and activities.
  • Do your homework on your selected destination. You’ll find activities that marry adventure with culture.
