I recently did something parents dream about; I took a vacation. With my kids.
I travel with my children frequently, and I love it, but I categorize most of these as trips rather than rejuvenating getaways. This time, though, I flew to Mexico, checked into the Rosewood Mayakoba in Playa del Carmen, and didn’t leave until it was time to go back to the airport. It was wonderful. I told my travel writer instincts to take a hike, and instead of scoping out every cool hotel, restaurant, or activity within a one-hour radius, we all just relaxed.
While I was there, I realized that this vacation wasn’t an accident, and it wasn’t the result of simply staying in one place. The resort knew exactly what families needed, and they took steps, big and small, to make the property a place where parents could really unwind.
In light of that experience, I made a list of family travel commandments. (Hoteliers, listen up. This is the key to keeping us happy.)
