Are you a typical family with hard working parents and a couple of kids?
If your idea of a perfect holiday doesn’t involve cooking or cleaning an all inclusive family vacation resort is the way to go!
All inclusive family vacations come in many shapes and sizes — there is one to suit the most discerning among us!
1) Take a cruise. This is perhaps top on my list of best all inclusive family vacations. On most cruises, you can eat to your hearts content. Many cruise ships even sell postcards to mail back to your friends featuring pics of gourmet meals! Kid friendly cruises such as Disney and Carnival also have pizza, hot dogs and milkshakes galore!
2) All inclusive beach resorts are also a hit with my family. Lots of fun activities for the kids on the beach while mom and dad relax or join in. Swim, snorkel, learn to dive, water-ski, or sail a sailboat.
Afterwards, there’s no need for mom to cook! The family can enjoy a variety of beautifully presented meals pool side or in the hotel dining room. My favourite all inclusive family vacation resorts include premium drinks for mom and dad too!
Consider Mexico or Dominican Republic for choices that are very kind to your budget.
3) Family all inclusive ski vacations are rare but do exist and can include airfare or other transportation, meals, ski lessons, lift tickets and entertainment. If you like outdoor winter sports this kind of vacation can’t be beat!
Can’t ski but want to learn how? Don’t worry, it is fun to learn and every ski resort has qualified instructors for group or private lessons.
Non skiers can enjoy the steaming outdoor hot tubs, restaurants overlooking the ski hill and roaring fireplaces by which you can enjoy the view while the kids ski!
4) Family focussed educational or adventure tours are another great all inclusive family vacation option. Friends of ours went on a week long discovery tour of the Galapagos Islands, and haven’t stopped talking about it.
Other possibilities include farm vacations, cruise and learn sailboat trips for families, and all inclusive trips to big league sport games or car races.
If you don’t see something that catches your fancy, check with your travel agent. Many travel agents are aware of all inclusive trip for you to the destination of your choice.
