Top destinations for vacations with kids, a complicated challenge for families with kids. Let’s list some locations that are ideal for kids. Costa Rica has gained prominence as one of the top eco-friendly tourism destinations in the world. The Central American country is brimming with amazing learning opportunities and once-in-a-lifetime experiences for families to enjoy together, and 2019 is finally delivering on affordable family friendly accommodations. Guanacaste is a natural fit for families visiting the verdant country. Highlights include Las Baulas Marine National Park, the nesting ground of the endangered Leatherback turtle who deposit their eggs on the beach here October through March. Vandara Hot Springs offers adventure seekers an unforgettable race through tree tops on a canopy zip line. And there’s also fishing, swimming and snorkeling along the pristine shores of Flamingo Beach.
Grand Lucayan, Bahamas – This beachfront family resort is everything you’ve dreamed of from your frost-bitten state. The Grand Lucayan Beach & Golf Resort is the largest hotel on the island and considered by many to be the finest. The hotel offers the sandy beaches, warm sun, and ocean breezes for which the Bahamas are known. Expect lots of amenities, dining options, and planned activities. It’s in the island’s touristy Lucaya district, making it easy enough to take in some of the local sights if you want.
The beaches of Naxos are some of the most kid-friendly in all of Greece. Most of the beaches are shallow and calm. The best beaches on the island (including the one pictured, Plaka Beach) are found on the island’s southwest coast and thus protected from the often intense winds (called the meltemi) that blow from the north in July and August. St Georgios Beach is another favorite of ours and is an easy walk from the charismatic main town of Hora where you’ll find the bulk of the island’s hotels and restaurants.
This boutique hotel is both stylish, as well as affordable, and offers some crazy cool amenities for every member of the family. For parents, the smartly located property (two blocks shy of Union Square) offers easy access to theaters and the city’s best dining. New this May is the Kimpton Kids family program that includes complimentary bike usage, free movie rentals (with popcorn), museum passes, and unlimited hot chocolate in the morning. Snag tickets to the nearby Children’s Creativity Museum, or take advantage of our favorite quirky perk: the Guppy Love amenity that grants children a surrogate pet goldfish for the duration of their stay. From $259 a night.
