My kids are getting older so I’m definitely starting to consider more adventure-focused vacation destinations, like Costa Rica and Peru. So, I was naturally excited to see that fellow family travel bloggers, Amie O’Shaughnessy of Ciao Bambino and Jamie Pearson of Travel Savvy Mom, had published a new ebook, The Smart Parents Guide to Family Adventure Vacations.
Inside, you’ll find loads of great tips and tricks whether you want to ride elephants in Thailand, take a wildlife safari in Africa or hop on a small ship wilderness cruise in Alaska. Even better, if you know you want to go the adventure route on your next family vacation, but you aren’t quite sure where to go, this ebook will help you figure that out too.
There’s also a great section for parents getting ready to plan their first adventure vacation, listing out five “entry-level destinations,” including Costa Rica, Thailand, Australia, Alaska and Morocco. Each section goes into why each destination is perfect for first-time family adventure seekers and what activities you can expect to do as family in each locale.
Finally, look for a section in this ebook on what makes a good trip. You definitely don’t want to go half-way around the world with your family only to find that your dream vacation destination is far from a dream. Among their tips, look for destinations that offer flexibility when you need it and choose a vacation spot that allows for a family-friendly pace.
