Q: We’d love to splurge a little on our next vacation. Where can we find a little rest and relaxation but still have plenty of options to explore with our kids (ages 9 and 13)?
Jennifer Della Penna, a member of our virtual travel advisor team, took all of one second to come up with her answer: Beaches Turks & Caicos, an all-inclusive family resort nestled just north of Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
“It’s amazing for families,” she said. “It was completely designed for families. There’s enough there to keep you busy or, if you want, to do nothing at all.”
Located on pristine Grace Bay Beach (with perfect aqua water and soft sand), the resort has five “villages” with accommodations ranging from luxury rooms and suites to family villas that come complete with butler service.
The property also has 21 restaurants, 10 pools, a water park, watersports, a kids’ club, nanny service and “Sesame Street” characters to keep the littles entertained.
Della Penna and her family have been to Beaches Turks & Caicos five times, and are planning on going back in 2023.
If you want to see the world while riding, flying and staying in style, Della Penna suggests checking out Adventures by Disney and Tauck Bridges tours. Both providers craft tours with families – and five star accommodations and dining – in mind.
But whether you want to explore Antarctica, see the ancient marvels of Egypt, take in a Seine river cruise, or check out the U.S. national parks, there are tours available for every family and every budget.
