Best destinations for vacations with kids

Travel tours for relaxing with your kids, a complicated challenge for families with kids. Let’s list some locations that are good for kids. Kilauea volcano’s lava flow on the island of Hawaii made global headlines for three consecutive months last summer. Now that the volcanic activity has stopped, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, the island’s most-popular attraction, has reopened and is offering new experiences unlike anywhere else in the world for 2019. Hawaii Forest and Trail’s new Volcano Unveiled tour showcases the historic events that changed the park-explore a private lava tube with yellow and gold microbial mats living on the cave walls. Adventurous families may want to zip-line in the park with KapohoKine Adventures or peddle around with Bike Volcano.

Cayman Islands – This chain of three islands features glorious shallow water and calm sea, so all ages may enjoy a dip in the Caribbean. Diving and snorkeling are popular activities, while young naturalists will enjoy visiting Cayman Turtle Farm. Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort has recently completed an extensive transformation, making it an excellent choice for families staying on Grand Cayman.

This is an absolutely stunning stretch of sand – and my favorite beach in Thailand. It’s a 20 minute walk from the main “town” on Railay, but the path is fun and easy – a shaded mini-adventure, with caves to peek into along the way. More caves are found at the beach but these are accessed through the water and are fun for older kids to explore.

Fairmont Kea Lani’s $70 million upgrade transformed what was really good into something spectacular. The Hawaiian culture-focused kids club invites little ones to partake in hula dancing, lei making, coconut painting, and tide pool explorations while adventurous teens can hike, snorkel, sail, canoe, and even mountain bike down a volcano. Factor in the three pools interconnected with a 140-foot waterslide and five A-list restaurants and you’ve got paradise on the Pacific. The family-oriented villas are equipped with a full kitchen (for home-cooked meals) a private plunge pool, and a living room stocked with board games. From $689 a night.
