Up, Up and Away! Top Tips for Traveling Internationally with Children

If your Sunscape Resorts & Spas vacation is quickly approaching, we know what an exciting time it can be! If you’re traveling with little ones, it can also be a hectic time trying to get everything ready for travel to another country. In honor of #BeachThursday we’re here with a few handy tips to make sure that your travels to Sunscape are cool, calm and collected!

Whether you’re young or young at heart, Sunscape Resorts & Spas bring out the kid in everyone. Relax, have fun, and enjoy beautiful beaches while making lasting vacation memories. Comfy rooms & suites, kid friendly dining, loads to do… It’s Unlimited-Fun®!

Check out the below tips for an all-star vacation for all:

1. Passports, Passports, Passports!

When traveling internationally, a passport is an absolute must. Be advised that all members of your family (even your littlest ones!) will need a passport. Be sure to make a photocopy of everyone’s passport and handle the passports of all children for safe keeping!

2. Pack appropriately for the plane!


Younger guests enjoy the Sea Turtle release program at Sunscape Dorado Pacifico Ixtapa.

When traveling on planes (especially long distances) with little ones, be sure to pack appropriately for the long trip! Bring lots of books, games, puzzles and fully charged electronics along with plenty of kid-friendly snacks to avoid paying for pricey snack options in flight.

3. Prep for International Culture

Paddle Board

Guests enjoy paddle boarding at Sunscape Sabor Cozumel.

As many customs, products and even weather may be unfamiliar and new for your little ones when in another country, take a moment to plan out items to bring along to make them feel at home while away. If your child prefers a certain brand of snack, their pillow from home or watching a TV show that won’t be available in the country you’re visiting, plan ahead and leave extra room in your bags for the comforts of home.

Ready to jet off on your next escape? Act fast! Now through April 30, the longer you stay the more you save! Get $50 air credit per room, per night with the Unlimited Air Credit special offer when you reserve your stay at any Sunscape Resort & Spa by April 30, 2015 for travel from February 25, 2015 to August 21, 2015. Plus, up to 2 kids stay free when staying in the same room as two paying adults for travel from May 1, 2015 through December 23, 2015!

We can’t wait to see you!

Five Ways to Explore Mexican Culture with the Kids

Vacation can mean so much more than just having fun. It’s also a rare opportunity to learn about the world around you first-hand. These experiences are especially important for children and opening their eyes to the different ways people live around the globe. If you’re staying at Sunscape Dorado Pacifico Ixtapa, why not take some time out of your stay to explore Mexican culture with the kids using these fun ideas? Chances are you will all end up learning something you didn’t know before you hopped on the plane!

  • Food: Explore Mexico by starting with one of the most distinguishing aspects of a culture—food! Take the opportunity while you’re at Sunscape Dorado Pacifico Ixtapa to get a taste of real Mexican food instead of Americanized Tex-Mex at Tamarindo, serving up authentic Mexican delicacies.

Fresh Fish Tacos

  • Excursion: Take a quick day-trip to the Mexican city of Zihuatenejo. Less touristy than its sister city Ixtapa, Zihuatenejo was a small fishing village up until the rapid growth of the area’s tourism industry in the 1970s. The city is known for its laid-back, beachy vibe and is a mere 10-minute drive from Sunscape Dorado.

  • Shop: While exploring Zihuatenejo or other neighboring areas, help kids poke around in the many shops and artisan craft stands for the perfect distinctly-Mexican souvenir. The bright colors and fabrics used in many crafts are beautiful and truly unique to Mexico.
  • Language: It’s never too early to start learning a new language; in fact, the younger a child is when they begin learning a language the more likely it is that it will stick with them through adulthood. Before your trip, find a kid-friendly Spanish dictionary and you can both learn the basics together. Many of the staff members at Sunscape Dorado are fluent in both English and Spanish, so encourage kids to practice their new vocabulary throughout their stay!
  • Currency: Make sure you take home some Mexican currency! Give kids a few pesos to keep for themselves or even hand out to friends once they get home as little mementos. One peso is worth less than 0.1% of the American dollar, making them inexpensive and long-lasting souvenirs. Together you can do some research on the figures present on the coins for a worthwhile learning opportunity.

The official Mexican currency is PESO and the smallest is cent.

To finish off your exploration of Mexican culture, encourage kids to put together a scrapbook of everything they learned over their vacation, featuring any interesting photos or mementos they put together along the way.  What are you waiting for? Book your culture-rich vacation to Mexico today!
