Top 10 Central/South American Beaches to Have A Family Getaway

There are many reasons why Central and South America are a hotspot for vacationers, but one of the top reasons is its iconic beaches and great climate that lasts year round. Many families visit the beaches annually to unwind and create memories that they will cherish for a long time.

Family Vacation Activities in Eastern Canada

Most people – avid tourists and sporadic travellers alike – associate Canada with maple syrup, hockey, cold weather and of course the Niagara Falls. But as tourists who’ve visited this country with uniquely dazzling mountains, landscapes and countless tourist activities would attest – there is more to Canada than meets the eye.


Growing up in Adelaide, Australia the rest of the world felt so far away.  I have always had a passion for learning about new destinations, traditions and cultures.  Even back in primary school at the age of around 9 I wanted to learn as much as I could about Europe, the countries and even their flags.  From there I did the same with Asia, then south America and so on.  My best friend and I at the time even went to different travel agencies collecting as many travel brochures as possible and then pretending we were running our own travel agency.

Skip forward quite a few years and I actually did end up working for a travel agency.  I absolutely loved helping people create their perfect holiday. As much as I loved that side of being a travel agent there was a lot that someone with my ethics really didn’t like. 

I left the travel industry quite some time ago but once people find out I was once a travel agent I get asked for advise on what to see, where to go and what to do. I still absolutely love talking about travel so here I am trying to help as many people as I can fulfill their travel dreams.
