Families with Older Teens and 20-Somethings

So, your kids are now older teens or 20-somethings… they’re off to college or starting out in the working world. That doesn’t make you any less of a family, and those are still great ages for an action-packed family adventure!

Your young adult kids will love the sophisticationthrill and variety involved in these trips; they’ll be whitewater rafting through rain forest rivers, hiking rugged terrain, seeing some unbelievable wildlife and enjoying enriching cultural experiences like learning to dance salsa and merengue and going out to some local hotspots for a few drinks and some dancing – all with their proud parents and other similarly-aged families.

And the beauty of traveling with older kids is that picking dates outside the normal K-12 vacation times will lead to cheaper airfare and less crowded flights.
