The whole purpose of a vacation is to spend a stress-free time in some lovely place with the people you love or spend time getting lol coaching sessions. Still sometimes preparation for the trip and even the time you spend there are all but relaxing. And you should do your best to avoid it.

First thing to realize is that you cannot do everything by yourself. Include the kids and the partner in choosing the location and date and packing the things. Opt for a suny and relaxing destination, because we all know that sunny days mean more happiness.

Prepare some pleasant music for the road and take a piece of your home with you (some holiday tradition you have when at home – dinner, reading a story, etc.).

In the end, make a deal with all the members that there will be no arguing or other unpleasant things during the holiday. Here are top choices for your stress-free family getaway destinations.


Perhaps you have never considered Mexico as the ideal holiday destination, but, the truth is, this country loves when families come visit and once they are there, both the kids and the parents are instantly captivated. Experience the legendary Mexican hospitality which will make you feel welcomed and relaxed.

The kids will be entertained in Mexico City’s museums and pony rides of Chapultepec Park. Do not stop at the capital; move on to the family-friendly beaches of Yucatan Peninsula or Puerto Vallarta.
