owadays holidays with kids are very different from those of adults, for that reason you have to prepare them in advance; look for the best deals, plan the activities, decide if it is going to be a trip along the coast or in the mountain, but especially make it an unforgettable trip.
A single-parent family can also have their own needs, such as giving fun experiences without an expensive cost, here we will see some options and tips to organize your best holidays with kids for the beginning of 2018.
Where to go on vacation with children?
First question: What places do you want to see? Beach? Mountain and fresh air? Snow? A good option can go through destinations that offer a good fusion between nature and city, in Spain exists some of these, for example Benidorm, with its routes through the Sierra Helada, its famous beaches, that’s a city plenty of life with leisure options for all ages. Definitely a great place to travel with the kids.
It should be noted that Benidorm, apart of the mountain, beach and city, also has two top theme parks, sure you already know them but in these articles you will find some information about: Terra Mitica and Aqualandia.
Staying in hotels or rural houses is OK, but the world of camping is unknown to many people, you can always give it a chance.
How to organize a vacation with kids?
The best trips for kids are not just the where as the how, you have to make them special and original.
How old are your children? It is not the same to plan a vacation for children of 12 years than newborn babies of 6, 12 or 18 months. Some ideas on what to do in your Benidorm holidays with kids depending on age:
- Less than 3 years old: Take a walk in the two promenades of Poniente and Levante beaches
- From 4 to 10 years old: Visit the parks of La Aigüera and Foietes, with lots of swings and green spaces
- 10 years or more: Festilandia Park, Terra Mítica, Aqualandia, The Bowling in Av Mediterráneo, La Cruz route
You must be careful with the famous “All Included”, as we can find ourselves in low-quality establishments, with many times low-quality guests too, so it is always good to have a look to the opinions of TripAdvisor to have more information from the place we’re going to.
