No matter where you live or how long your courtship,the goal of the wedding is the same: two people are now joined as one.  You share the celebration with friends and family days and even months leading up to your special day. So much of the wedding day preparation is done with groups of celebrating people: the bridal shower, bridesmaid’s brunch, bachelor and bachelorette parties, and wedding dress shopping (have you seen ‘Say Yes to the Dress?’)

When the wedding day is over, the gifts have been opened and your friends and relatives are headed back to their homes and home states – what's left are the two of you together, a newly wedded couple, blissfully ready for the honeymoon.

Family vacations are wonderful times to be together. The everyday routine is put on hold and the family gets together for one week to create memories that will l last a lifetime. Getting ready to leave town or leave the county takes planning, time and effort but it is all worth it when you get to your destination. Traveling with children under 10 can turn a vacation into a trip for some parents. Here are 4 tips to make sure your vacation stays a vacation.

Surprise your Kids with New Activities

For smaller children having to sit for an extended period of time is difficult. Usually full of energy going from one room to another and one activity to another is not possible on an airplane. Make sure you prepare for the plane ride by packing a bag full of activities your kids can during the plane ride. Make a trip to your local Dollar Store or Target for small games, coloring books, or an I Spy book or two. A new game for their Nintendo DS can bring hours of entertainment and you a lot of peace. Make the activities a surprise. If you are traveling with more than one child, bring a few small prizes for their efforts. Encouraging good behavior and participation when they least expect is a bonus.

Take a walkFamily Vacation Airplane 410x410 Traveling with kids on a plane

If your destination takes you more than 2 hours to arrive at, make sure and communicate with the kids that you will be taking a walk up and down the plane’s isle with them every once in a while. This is a good time for them to see the airplane, say hi to those on the isle, use the restroom and stretch their legs and curiosity. It’s also good for mom and dad to stretch too!

Bring Healthy Snacks

Healthy snacks are always important for children and even more important on an airplane. Too much sugar can raise their energy levels, which in a confined environment, is not good for them, you or the other passengers on the plane. The airlines do not provide enough sustenance for most small kids so make sure you come prepared with snacks of your own. This will ensure your kids don’t let you know they are hungry. Good healthy snacking choices could include bagels and cream cheese (shmear the cream cheese on the bagel, press the halves together and cut. Use foil wrap to ensure it stays fresh and does not come apart), pretzels, granola bars, fruit cups (remember the spoon) and gold fish or Cheez-It crackers. Don’t forget the wipes or napkins.

Plan for Quiet Time

If your flight is a long one, there is no reason why you can’t impose a ‘quiet time’ in the air. Letting the kids know up front what the schedule will be will help them prepare for the fact that they are going to rest and relax for a time before the flight lands. Encourage the kids to pack one favorite stuffed animal for the flight. His can be their napping buddy. It can also be used as a small pillow. As a parent, traveling with small kids takes quite a bit of your energy as well. This will give you the break you need to get and prepare to deplane, gather the kids and the luggage and get to the hotel without being completely exhausted.

A family vacation is for everyone. Make sure that the kids are not the only ones who have a good time. Plan in advance and arm yourself with activities, snacks and a schedule for the flight so you all have a great time (and you don’t end up planning your next vacation without the kids!)

The holidays are the best and worst time to travel. Traveling over the holidays is the best because the holidays themselves are thrilling! It is exciting to get ready for a trip and travel. Many travelers at the airports are visiting friends or family. Others may be headed to a location that they've always dreamed about! The 2013 holiday season is in the books but the timing is perfect to start planning your trip for next Christmas!

Holiday Travel 410x410 I Want to Get Away!Why plan a trip now for next Christmas?

If you have any points on credit cards most companies will let you book 12 months to 350 days in advance to use any credits or points you have been accumulating. Many airlines only reserve a certain number of seats per flight for those “turned in points” or frequent flyer miles. If you are traveling with more than one other person, getting seats for all of you may be difficult.

Plan your trip for a less busy time of year

It’s no secret that the day before Thanksgiving is the most traveled day of the year. Christmas is not far behind. Consider a once-in-a-lifetime trip on another holiday like Valentines’ Day. Nothing says, “You rock my world” to your husband, wife or significant other than a trip to one of the Hard Rock Resorts in Mexico. Consider planning a trip for a special birthday. Is it 30, 40, 50 or 60 years? A moonlit dinner on your birthday with the ocean lapping in the sand a few yards away from you can melt away the years in no time. If you aren't 30 you will still feel like 30!


You may not be the spur-of-the-moment type so planning a trip to surprise your spouse in advance for an anniversary may fit the bill. The Travel Agents at Enchanted Honeymoons know when all the extra special all- inclusive rates are for resorts like Sandals, Palace, and Royal, just to name a few.

That was the best proposal!

You've seen them on YouTube now it’s your turn! Turn a the trip your planned with Enchanted Honeymoon for your love interest into a surprise exotic proposal! Video tape your own romantic proposal in a destination that will melt her heart. Better yet, keep the surprise going and turn that proposal into a destination wedding! The agents at Enchanted Honeymoon are experts when it comes to arranging a destination wedding for you and your family and friends. Many resorts offer the bride and groom perks for group booking! Those benefits can differ from resort to resort and the Enchanted Honeymoon destination wedding experts can tell you all about it when you call or come in to their travel agency!
There are lots of great times in the year to plan a trip. Lucky for all of us, we can help you determine what the best time is for YOU.

I don’t know about you but a photo of the ocean and or someone sitting on a beach inspires me to take a deep breathe and attempt to relax. The photo instantly encourages you to ‘want to be there’. The photo reminds you that you need to take time for yourself to relax. You need to rejuvenate. You need to spend some time away and decompress, be with a loved one or be by yourself! When you see a photo like this do you say to yourself, “I need a vacation. I need to get away. I want to be there!” The self talk is there for a minute and goes away the next. You’ll hear the voice again the next time you see another picture of the blue ocean and a peaceful beach. The difference is, this time you listen to the voice. You decide to explore your possibilities. Find out how you can be in that picture on that beach.

Beach peaceful 410x410 Planning Your VacationYou may do a little research on your dream destination on the internet. The web is great for that kind of thing but when it comes to executing your trip, a travel agency is a sure fire way to get there with less stress and better planning. When you work with a travel agency, the difficult parts about traveling are no longer part of your process! Working with an agency like Enchanted Honeymoons makes getting to that beach easy and stress free. The experts at the Enchanted Honeymoons all specialize in locations around the world. You will work with a travel expert who has been to the place you are dreaming of, they can suggest and book your hotels, your airfare and take all the details off your plate so all you have to do is get on that plane and enjoy the plate (of excellent food!) at the other end.

When you are thinking about trying a restaurant in your area, you go to the internet and read the reviews. You ask your friends who have been there for their advice on what to order and when to go. Enchanted Honeymoons is just like that. They are your friends who have been to the places you want to visit, they have eaten at the restaurants you would enjoy and they can assist you with the activities you want to participate in when you get there. They are your travel advisers and with any adviser, they recommend things to you that will fit your idea of fun or relaxation. They will gather as much information as they can about “your perfect trip” and they will book your travel, help choose your hotel and then book it for you, arrange your transportation to your hotel and make sure that the places you want to see will be a perfect match for your vacation, special trip or honeymoon.

The internet is helpful for a lot of things. But when it comes to your vacation, you don’t want to leave it in the hands of the internet alone. Trust the travel experts at Enchanted Honeymoons. You don’t take a lot of trips like this. Don’t leave the details to the internet. Leave them to real people who have been to the real places you want to travel to. Your trip of a lifetime will be better and more enjoyable for it.

The nightly entertainment was also fun!  They had live bands and a DJ each night.  There was an outdoor amphitheater near the beach with live shows.  One night they had the game show “Minute to Win It”, with great prizes, including a $100 gift card to the jewelry shop!

The food at the resort was fabulous.  During the day they had two buffet style restaurants, a burger and quesadilla grill, and a wood fired oven serving homemade pizza and nachos with fresh ingredients.  If you needed a break from the sun, the room service menu was great.  At night, the resort offered four a la carte restaurants.  One of the favorites was Zen, which was an Asian restaurant.  It offers the best sushi menu!  There was also an Italian, Mexican, and Brazilian restaurant that had a large variety of options!
