There's so many adventures to go on and places to visit as a family but here are our top 8 things you simply must do with your children before they grow up!
1. Bio-luminescent Bay, Fajardo, Puerto Rico
This is a pretty magical experience all the family will enjoy, hire a guide and a kayak for an adventure of a life time. The route will see you kayaking through narrow mangrove tunnels, surrounded by iguanas. Then you will come to the bay where the magical water sparkles beneath you. It certainly looks like magic, but it's actually a chemical reaction caused by oceanic plankton being physically disturbed. The luminosity of the plankton is dependent on the conditions of the water, as well as the brightness of the moon, so it's a good idea to check in with your guide prior to booking. This is suitable for children age 6 and over.
2. Disney World, Florida
You cannot write a blog post about the most magical places to take children without including Disney! Your children will be blown away meeting their favourite characters! There's big rides for the older children and adults and plenty to entertain the little ones! Download the apps to ensure you miss the queues and don't get lost!
3. Glass Igloo Village, Finland
A hotel stay with a difference! Stay in a glass igloo where you can admire the northern lights or admire the thousands of stars in the night sky. During the Christmas period little ones can become one of santa's little helpers and the older children can go a husky safari or snowmobile!
4. Dinosaur Valley State Park, Glen Rose, Texas
Take a walk on the wild side at Dinosaur Valley, here you can find dinosaur tracks with over 20 miles of trails to explore. Little one's will love finding their favourite Dino's footprints! There's also a whole host of activities to keep you busy for the weekend such as hiking, mountain biking, swimming and fishing in the river or simply looking for wildlife.
5. Cappadocia, Turkey
One of the most breath taking places on earth! See our previous blog post for some hints and tips to explore during a weekend
6. The Galápagos Islands
The Galápagos Islands are a uniquely, magical place on Earth with spectacular scenery, incredible wildlife, and a rich history of pirates, explorers and travellers. Hike around the crater of a volcano or look out for giant tortoises. The Galápagos have some of the best snorkelling in the world, perfect for little explorers.
7. Stingray City, Cayman Islands
Stingray City- a group of sandbars 25 miles of the shore of Grand Cayman. Here you can swim and feed the friendly sting ray and view other marine life. The water is very shallow and crystal clear so is a great place for beginners. An unforgettable family experience!
8. Maasai Mara, Kenya
There is no greater gift you can give a child than experiencing animals in their natural habitat. Undisturbed and learning about the wonders of the animal kingdom, it is the perfect opportunity for them to learn from your guide the ins and outs of the big 5 and how the Maasai tribe live. We recommend a four day safari so not to rush your adventure!.
