4 Family-Friendly International Destinations

Travel Abroad with Your Children to These Fun Places

Your life used to be filled with non-stop travel adventures to Italy, Australia and Africa. You’ve slacked off a little, but now, you feel inspired to see more of the world. Except for one thing… you have kids now.

Many people believe that taking their kids or grandkids along with them on a trip just isn’t a viable option, especially if it’s an international trip. Hey… wait a minute! That’s just not true. Parents can still enjoy the luxury of traveling abroad with children, and here are four international experiences you should add to your family travel to-do list.

Explore the Great Outdoors of Eco-Friendly Costa Rica

Great things come in small countries, as anyone who visits Costa Rica will clearly see. When exploring this eco-friendly country, your choices include up-close encounters with sea turtles, exotic birds and sloths; outrageous adventures such as snorkeling, whitewater rafting and zip-lining; and of course, chilling on the beach and hiking through rainforests. And it’s all at a modest price. Your family will appreciate the friendly locals and enjoy a variety of things to do and see, including a fun day of hiking at Arenal Volcano National Park! This Central American nation is perfect for families who enjoy outdoor adventure.

Pack Your Bags for an Exotic Experience in Thailand

 This southeast Asian country doesn’t stand out as an obvious family-friendly destination.

And the best part of your unforgettable experience here will be the people. Although children may be unnerved by this exotic destination, the locals try their best to make them feel special like it’s a home away from home.
