Top Trips with Teens | Yampu Tours

Custom Travel Experiences Since 1998

Raising a teenager is as easy as nailing Jell-O to a tree. Planning a vacation with teenagers, however, doesn’t have to be so tricky!

We all know that teenagers are not so easily amused nowadays, with social media and Fortnight taking precedence over family time, so it certainly takes some careful planning to appease their adolescent angst.

For a smooth family vacation that’ll appease these misunderstood creatures, all that is really needed is a fun-filled itinerary, lots of pool time, Wi-Fi at every hotel, and some small doses of “learning.”

Something to also note is that teenagers are more impressed if they recognize the destination. For example, every teen girl would love to walk the streets of Paris. Destinations with iconic monuments like Peru’s Machu Picchu, Greece’s Santorini, Brazil’s Christ the Redeemer, would all gain excitement and appreciation.

Many being parents of globetrotting teens themselves, our travel experts have compiled their choices for top trips with teens that will surely thrill every generation.

Point of Interest; ADVENTURE!

Colombia is not at the top of any teenagers list but hear us out. Colombia is more than coffee and old buildings (note; pretending not to be completely infatuated with Bogota’s beautiful colonial style buildings and delicious coffee farmsteads pains us) and offers some of the best adventure activities in Latin America. White water rafting down the Fonce River, exploring ancient caves, abseiling in waterfalls and bathing in a volcano is just a small list of adrenaline pumping activities one can partake in.

South African Safari and Victoria Falls

Big Point of Interest; Viktoria Falls and Safaris

Elephant-south-africa-safari-photo-phone-picture

With scenes straight out of National Geographic, Southern Africa is well known for its abundance of big game, out of this world luxury lodges and glamping experiences. Aside from seeing wild elephants at a trunk’s reach away, families can take advantage of the excellent amenities at numerous lodges while hopping from park to park through Africa’s wild plains. Game viewing for an entire trip can, of course, get rather tiring, no matter how posh accommodations may be, so a quick side trip to Victoria Falls provides a fantastic change of scenery. If you happen to be visiting during the dry season, daredevils can take a peek over the fall’s edge from the famous Devil’s Pool. (warning, although the tour is very safe with experienced guides, faint of heart mothers may want to look away!)
