Let’s just call Castaway Cay what it is. Castaway Cay is Treasure Island. ► Ranking: #cleandiaper Disney Cruise Fantasy Port Stop: Castaway Cay, Bahamas Excursion: N/A We anticipated visiting Castaway Cay from the moment we knew it existed. We have a long history of crossing Disney parks and experiences off our bucket list and Castaway Cay was no exception. We booked a cruise...

We’ve been to Castaway Cay twice now. Once on the Disney Wonder, and once on the Disney Fantasy. During our first visit on the Disney Wonder we did everything wrong. One of those things we did wrong? We booked the worst activity on Castaway Cay: The Glass Bottom Boat Scenic Voyage. Talk about awful. ► Ranking: #stinkydiaper Disney Cruise Wonder Port...
Rafting on the Martha Brae River, Rafting on the Martha Brae, River Rafting in Jamaica, Martha Brae, Jamaica, Falmouth, Yah Mon, Disney Cruise, Excursion, Caribbean, traveling with kids, family travel, creating family memories
No, we didn't take our three year old white water rafting, even though that is what comes to mind when we talk about this excursion and everyone’s jaw drops to the floor. Actually, this is better. This is a Caribbean escape, bamboo rafting under a canopy of trees on a warm river made of silk with no distractions.   Bamboo River...

We plan all our travels last minute. Part of it is a perk of the job. We get great last minute discounts as part of interline perks. The other part is flight loads. You can’t very well plan everything out not knowing if you’ll even get on a flight where you’ve planned out an intricate vacation. The last part...

The myth of Atlantis is an enigma. Is it the Greek island of Santorini? Is it lost forever and sunken to the depths of the ocean? Is it guarded by the Kraken? This is exactly why it’s such an appealing marketing scheme to call a glorified casino by the same name, Atlantis, and pretend like you are going to...

► Nap-Time Version: Bananas Beach Bar and Grill gets our family pick for where to eat before your Bioluminescent Bay tour on the island of Vieques.
Balneario El Escambron Beach, family beach in san juan, puerto rico, traveling with kids, family travel
A trip to the Caribbean means water, at least for our family. We pack just one or two outfits for the trip and plan on spending the entire time in our swimsuits covered in sand. We might leave for an hour or two to get some food, but all that is second to jumping over waves, digging holes in...
The Wave Hotel, Hurricane Maria, Puerto Rico, Vieques, Traveling with Kids, Family Travel
Nowhere did we see the destruction of Hurricane Maria so prominent than on the island of Vieques, Puerto Rico. Our family visited the island 15 months after Hurricane Maria attacked the Caribbean in September of 2017. We stayed in Isabel Segunda near the ferry dock at The Wave Hotel. These days the hotel doesn’t look like much, but it...
San Juan Puerto Rico, Los Pinos Cafe, Puerto Rican Food, Restaurants in San Juan, traveling with kids, family travel
You know who to ask for restaurant recommendations? Taxi drivers. This isn’t some huge revelation, I know that, but somehow our family always seems to forget this nugget of gold when we travel someplace new. Los Pinos Café was our revelation in San Juan, Puerto and they serve the best churrasco we’ve ever had! ► Ranking: #cleandiaper Los Pinos...
Boat on the Panama Canal
We traveled 44,986 miles in 2019, and finally after a decade of travel are starting to understand the allure of luxury travel. It’s not just about nice accommodations and being pampered, it’s about vacation not feeling like work. When you travel as much as we do, sometimes vacations just feel like a burden. The groceries, the cleaning, the cooking... If you...
