A Perfect Getaway for Grandparents and the Grandkids!

AUTHOR Daniel Andino

We are seeing a growing trend in grandparents traveling with their grandkids lately and we couldn’t be more happy about it! 

Now that school is almost out, it’s the perfect time to travel, and your next adventure awaits you in the Galapagos Islands. Not only can this trip be crossed off your own bucket list, but this is the perfect opportunity to make happy memories with your grandchildren as well.

And what better graduation present than a trip to this amazing destination?!  It’s a win – win!

This past month we were excited to host grandparents traveling with their grandkids.  Here is Rae Sawyer’s quote from her Ecoventura cruise, which she booked through Southern Explorations!

“We have traveled with our children and grandchildren since they were very young. Traveling with grandchildren seems even more special because you get yet another chance to discover the wonders of our world through a young person. The gift of travel educates a child about the entire world and remains a part of their life forever. We all had a blast on our trip to the magnificent Galapagos islands!”  

Rae’s 15 year old grandson also had this to say: “It is fun to experience places with grandparents because you get to see the world through new eyes, and it sparks stories about their past that otherwise would not have been told. You get so used to being with your parents that when you are with others for a long period of time, your outlook on life and the world benefits as you see a bigger picture.”

When bringing younger family members on vacation, be sure to involve them in the planning process. Obviously, kids won’t always want to do exactly what you would do when you vacation with other adults. Ask for their input and include them on the decision-making for your trip together. Also, make sure any activities you’re planning are age-appropriate and not physically limiting for you or your grandkids.

With Ecoventura, you will never be bored! Between guided nature walks, snorkeling, zodiac rides, paddle boarding, and much more, there is so much to explore in the Galapagos.
