How do I satisfy the holiday needs of a teenager, a ten-year-old and a pre-schooler?
Everyone is different, the key to the whole family having fun is to make sure everyone’s interest is taken care of. A teenager might love zip lining through the jungle in Costa Rica. Whereas a ten-year-old and a pre-schooler will love seeing a sloth or other wildlife around the area. They key is to always add something in for everyone
What do you think is the best holiday ‘experience’ for children?
Wildlife is always a big hit with most children. There is nothing better than seeing it in its natural habitat. Latin America has an abundance of wildlife that will never cease to amaze our youngest and oldest guests
How do you recommend helping the excitement for a holiday build beforehand/help children remember the holiday afterwards?
I believe in anticipation so showing kids photos and videos of where they will be visiting is always a good way to get them excited and help them understand what to expect. You can also talk through some exciting tours that we have added specially for them.
