3 Bucket List Destinations for Families Who Adventure Together

Looking for some great family-friendly vacation ideas? Check out these awesome destinations that have something for everyone.

Kauai, Hawaii

Kauai is the ultimate destination for families seeking to immerse themselves in the unique charm of Hawaii and explore the island's awe-inspiring natural beauty. Begin your journey of discovery with interactive exhibits at the Kauai Children's Discovery Museum, a place where kids of all ages can learn and engage in fun educational activities. Then, venture to the picturesque Wailua River State Park for a serene kayak tour or a challenging hike to the peak of Mount Waialeale—the wettest spot on earth.

Dalmatian Coast, Croatia

Next, uncover the cultural treasures of Croatia's western coastline, a perfect family-friendly European destination. With its vibrant local culture, breathtaking natural wonders, pristine waters, and UNESCO Heritage Sites, the Dalmatian Coast is ideal for families. The coast is dotted with 79 islands, and island hopping by ferry is a fun adventure. Begin your journey in the coastal city of Zadar, a haven for sailing in the spectacular azure waters of the Kornati Archipelago. Children can marvel at the unique Sea Organ, which creates music through the motion of the waves, and the Sun Salutation, a solar-powered light installation that paints the night with colorful patterns.

A UNESCO Heritage site, Split is about an hour south of Zadar. Children will be mesmerized by the town's medieval buildings, centuries-old churches and forts, and 3,500-year-old Egyptian sphinx statues. Split is not just a city—it's a living museum waiting to be explored. It's also a fantastic spot for a beach day with its shallow waters.

Coast of Guanacaste, Costa Rica

Discover more family adventures along the Guanacaste coast. Nestled northwest of Costa Rica's vibrant capital, San Jose, this area boasts an impressive 124 miles of coastline, offering some of the most exhilarating surfing experiences in Central America. The beaches are home to numerous surf schools, ensuring families can enjoy the adrenaline rush. Playa Tamarindo, renowned for its gentle waves and perfect for beginners, is also a fantastic spot for boogie boarding and stand-up paddle boarding. The region is well-equipped with family-friendly tours, inviting you to explore the warm waters and activities like sailing and snorkeling day trips, all easily accessible for families.

For a truly magical Costa Rican experience, venture into the heart of the landscape's biodiversity via ziplining. Monteverde Cloud Forest beckons with suspended walkways and zip lines that provide breathtaking views of the lush jungle canopy and its ethereal clouds. Nearby, Rincon de la Vieja is home to active volcanoes and many outdoor activities such as hiking, wildlife observation, and hot springs, which provide an unforgettable experience beyond typical beach destinations.
