Multigenerational trip

Am stuck for ideas….any help really appreciated

There’s 4 adults (ourselves and 80 year old parents), and our 2 children - 8 and 11. We like culture, history, food, snorkelling and parents like beach holidays. We have only time for 9 nights from the UK and budget up to £10,000 over May half term (end May/June). It’s going to be a special trip as my son has a brain tumour.

We’ve been (and loved) far east but I think it’s probably too far for 9 nights. Have been considering Maldives, Oman, Jordan, Dominica, Mexico but again am wondering if too far for 9 nights, so also perhaps Southern Europe s an option….

Thank you all.

Hi Karen

Consider researching a Family cruise ... lots of itineraries to choose from, Ports of call vary, and things for all ages to enjoy...

Places youve mentioned-

The Maldives are mostly relaxing on an isolated atoll and snorkel or swim related, plus expensive..

Not a destination to wander/shop/sightsee etc

9 nights would be too long IMO, and lm not sure that all these age groups would enjoy it

Have never considered Oman or Jordan ... cant advise you on these places

Mexico is good for nice All incl family resort hotels ..9 days though might be a bit long... And l wouldnt rent a car or drive around Mexico anymore

You could rent an Airbnb or VRBO in Tuscany, or other S Europe location and a car and see some sights

Or visit a seaside area... Portugal, Spain, Italy, France etc

Really up to you and your family preferences

The weather end of May into early June "should " be pretty good in most places Mexico/Caribbean and S Europe

Also, not a great time to visit Maldives anyway

May is the start of the official wet season in the Maldives, and brings with it risks of storms and possible whole days of rain with reduced diving visibility...June is the same
