Focus on Family Vacations
As family members gather for the holidays, this presents the perfect opportunity to explore vacationing together. Whether it's a celebration to mark a notable event (special birthday or anniversary, for example), or the start of what might be an annual reunion, having a travel professional to manage the planning of all the individual facets that go into a memorable trip is tantamount to its success.
The team at VHR, WORLDWIDE specializes in family travel. We are now booking family vacations for a third generation of clients. We know all the right questions to ask, and can help to select the ideal accommodations and destination for your next family vacation - no matter how many people are in your group. While we do recommend consulting with a travel agent, if you don't have one you can reply on, we are also able to book airline tickets, reserve a vehicle (or vehicles), organize transfers to/from the airport(s), and coordinate any other services you want - such as sightseeing tours, diving or snorkeling trips, visits to museums and historic places, tee times at golf courses, jungle excursions, etc..
While you are hanging out and sipping cocktails with the family, use this time to discuss what each person enjoys doing on vacation so that the destination you choose as a group will accommodate everyone's needs. For example:
Diving: Belize, British Virgin Islands, Cozumel, Cayman Islands
Snorkeling: Bahamas, Turks + Caicos, British Virgin Islands
Gourmet Cuisine: Sint Maarten/Saint Martin, Barbados, Puerto Rico
Golf: Barbados, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Bahamas, Puerto Rico
Casino Gambling: Sint Maarten, Nassau/Paradise Island
Deepsea Fishing: Bahama Out Islands, Jamaica, Cozumel
Duty-free Shopping: Sint Maarten, Barbados, Jamaica, U.S. Virgin Islands, Antigua

We have a multitude of villas and condominiums that are ideal for families. Generally speaking, one of the household staff can be hired to babysit the children if the adults want a night out on the town. Here are some of our personal favorites that are currently featured on our website:
JM149 - wonderful, accommodating staff; fabulous pool.
BL105 - allows everyone to be in the same oceanfront resort, either sharing an accommodation or having your own place.
JM144 - designed with families in mind, right on the beach, play area for children.
These are just a few suggestions. Call (201) 767-9393 or e-mail us @ firstname.lastname@example.org for a wider selection.
