Cinque Terre conjurs up images of lush mountains and beautiful villages on rocky cliffs overlooking the sea. We planned on hiking Cinque Terre with our kids, but we were very excited to discover we could also go cycling in Cinque Terre with our kids!
We love hiking with our kids while traveling, so when we were planning our family vacation to Italy, we knew hiking Cinque Terre with our kids was a must. Cinque Terre is one of Italy’s most beautiful locations and the hiking between the legendary five coastal villages is truly epic.
Hvar has a well-deserved reputation for being a chic, jet-setting party town. As parents of two small kids (aged 2 & 4), we are not exactly party animals and weren’t sure if Hvar with kids was the right choice for us.
While visiting Croatia with kids, we knew we wanted to include Dubrovnik in our list of places to visit, but we always worry a little bit when visiting a place with as much hype as Dubrovnik. We had visions of multiple cruise ships being there at the same time and walking along the city walls shoulder to shoulder with hordes of tourists. We worried this wouldn’t make for a fun experience in Dubrovnik with kids.
Colombia’s Tayrona National Park is a truly special place. Nestled in-between the captivating turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea and the majestic Sierra Nevada mountains, Tayrona National Park is home to excellent jungle hiking and many beautiful beaches. This combination was too enticing to pass up and we knew we had to visit Tayrona National Park with our kids.
We knew we had to visit Minca with our kids; it’s simply our kind of town… An up-and-coming backpacker haven nested in the ultra-lush Sierra Nevada mountains, home to organic coffee and cocoa farms, waterfalls with swimming holes, great hiking and more.
Rodadero is a beach resort beautifully situated on the shores of the Caribbean Sea near the city of Santa Marta. Blessed with several beautiful beaches and close proximity to Tayrona National Park, there are plenty of fun things to do in Rodadero with kids.
Imagine listening to the sound of crashing waves as you fall asleep in your own open-air seaside hut… Or gently swinging on your hammock on your private patio while enjoying tranquil views of the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea…
I love using my credit card when I travel. I earn travel points and it reduces the need to walk around with a wad of cash in my pocket. When planning my trip to Colombia, I read a variety of accounts about credit cards not being widely accepted outside major centers and cash advances from ATM’s being difficult.
When we first began planning our 12-day Japan family vacation, we had originally planned to split our time equally between Tokyo and Kyoto. As we did more research, we were surprised to learn how incredible the Kyoto hiking is, so we eagerly decided to create a 7-day Kyoto itinerary with kids.
