Many families choose South and Central America for their vacations. The longitudinal proximity is a distinct advantage to North Americans who don't want to contest with significant jet lag on an international trip. Intergenerational family members living in different regions of the United States may meet up in Latin America with greater ease than Europe, Asia or Africa. English is the official language of Belize making it an easy choice. In Ecuador and the Galapagos, they use the US dollar as their official currency.
Costa Rica is a popular choice for families, due to the wide range of activities and reputation it has garnered. Rainforest and beaches in conjunction with resort properties that cater to everyone's comfort. Believe it or not, Panama and Nicaragua offer similar experiences, with Panama having more reliable, upscale accommodations.
Experiencing the diversity of bird and wildlife in the Galapagos will bring joy to every member of the family. Combine a small ship cruise with the highlands of Ecuador, the Amazon Jungle or Machu Picchu if time permits.
Further afield, Patagonia and Brazil's weather aligns perfectly with North America's for November through April holiday plans. Let visited but worth the visit are the Pantanal and Pampas. Staying in an estancia is a wonderful place to reconnect as a family.
