Packing for Your Family Vacation

It can be quite the task to pack for a family vacation. After hours of planning and packing, even the most prepared parents find themselves questioning, “What am I forgetting?”

To help make packing a little easier for a family trip to Now Resorts & Spas, we’ve put together a list of must have items when traveling with kids.

1. Blue painter’s tape. This is a great item to pack if you are traveling with infants and toddlers. It can be used in a variety of ways, including child-proofing electrical sockets or hanging up your child’s artwork in your hotel room that they make during their stay.

2. Thin duffel bag. Let’s be honest, packing lightly with kids is nearly impossible. There is nothing worse than getting all the way up to the ticket counter and finding out your check-in bag is too heavy. Not only does a duffel come in handy if you need to lighten your check-in bag, but it’s also great if you buy one too many souvenirs on your trip and need a way to bring them home.

3. Antibacterial wipes. I’m sure that almost every parent realizes what an important traveling necessity these are, but we thought we’d tell you once more. You can never have enough wipes! They can be used to kill germs on your hands, your child’s hands and your child’s toys which will inevitably end up on the floor of the plane.

4. Ziploc Bags. Stock up on zip-lock bags before your trip. You’d be surprised how many ways you can use these while traveling. Ziploc bags are perfect for snacks, leak-tight carriers, protecting important documents and keeping small items organized (like tiny socks and underwear).

5. Extra clothes. Accidents are bound to happen while traveling, so you should bring along an extra set of clothes for you and your children. Whether it be spit up, food, juice or a messy diaper, the last thing you want to do is be stuck in dirty clothes while traveling. After all, you can never be too prepared!

Do you have any recommendations for must have items when traveling with kids?

Get to Know Puerto Vallarta

As if its name doesn’t give it away, the newest member of the Now Resorts & Spas family, Now Amber Puerto Vallarta is situated in the beautiful town of Puerto Vallarta. We will be welcoming our first guests this April! In addition to the Unlimited-Luxury® vacation at Now Amber, we invite our guests to explore the exciting sites of the city we call home.

Puerto Vallarta was once named La Ciudad Mas Amigable en el Mundo, or friendliest city in the world, a name that it continues to live it up to even today. Puerto Vallarta features open-air cafés, chic boutiques and modern art galleries lining the seaside sidewalk.  This quaint town is surrounded by the gorgeous natural beauty of the San Madre Mountains, lush jungles and Bahía de Banderas, which serves as Puerto Vallarta’s aquatic playground. It begins where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean, forming one of the largest bays in the world and the largest in Mexico. The mountains and jungles offer a wealth of land-based adventures, from canopy tours to cultural exploration of the Huichol. When the sun goes down, the fun continues at Puerto Vallarta’s vast array of nightclubs.

Puerto Vallarta’s mix of cobblestone streets and contemporary zones with its vast array of activities makes it an easy and worthwhile place to visit. As Matt Long of Landlopers recently said about his visit to Puerto Vallarta, “Travel isn’t only about relaxing on the beach and getting away from it all. A truly great trip is about exploration and education; learning more about the local destination you are visiting.”

Not only is it easy to grab a cab and spend the day or night in downtown Puerto Vallarta, but it’s just simple to immerse yourself in Puerto Vallarta’s culture right at our resorts. From local artists and menu additions to interactions with our staff, visiting Now Amber Puerto Vallarta will allow you to experience this fabulous town firsthand.

Book your stay at Now Amber today with a special introductory rate starting at only $162 per person.  We look forward to welcoming you this spring!

Beat the End of Summer Blues

It’s that time of year again! Summer is quickly coming to an end, the kids are heading back to school and the weather is about to start cooling off for most you who do not live in a place that is warm year-round. Although there are some definite perks to the beginning of Fall and the fast approaching holiday season, there is also a sense of sadness when the reality of a carefree summer in the sun comes to an end.

Here at Now Resorts & Spas, we act as if it is Summer all year long! If you are experiencing the end of Summer blues, why not brighten your family’s spirits by starting to plan a tropical vacation at one of our resorts during the cold winter months? By having something fun to look forward to, it helps make the transition into Fall a little easier for everyone. 

Get the kids involved in planning the vacation by having them help select the resort so they feel like they are part of the process. Send them to our website to check out our photos, have them make a list of their top choices and then have a family vote to decide on the final destination. Your kids can even help pick some of the activities they would like to experience during the trip. It’s also fun to create an ongoing countdown to build the excitement and anticipation for your family vacation.

To all of our fans and followers, we hope you enjoy the last few weeks of Summer and we hope to see you soon!
