Andrea and Kevin have two teenage children with whom they love to create vacation memories. For a family traveling with kids this age it's usually challenging to ensure their vacation packages include activities everyone will enjoy and that will help them create the most treasured memories. So they were looking for unique experiences for their family as their window for vacationing was very limited and they needed to travel during the December holidays.


For their first family trip we planned a vacation to Costa Rica where they were mesmerized by the most majestic volcano, went rafting and zip lining, and here the family found a new love for horseback riding. They ended the trip with a few nights at the beach. Included in their vacation package was a professional photo session where the photographer captured some really special images of them and this memorable time. The following year they headed to Iceland where they hiked on a glacier, rode snowmobiles and spent a few hours horseback riding with the sweetest Icelandic horses. The third trip planned for Andrea was to Portugal. This was an adults only trip where her and Kevin relaxed on the beautiful beaches of the Algarve, then enjoyed private winery tours and tastings in two regions of Portugal. Walking food tours of Porto and Lisbon completed their romantic getaway.


"We’ve used Belkys from Distinct Vacations a total of three times for family vacations (2 parents and 2 teens) and we are now dreaming about our next post-COVID trip. Before Belkys we spent hours agonizing over vacation destinations, activities, and logistics. It was super time-consuming and though we always had fun we didn’t know what we were missing until we experienced our first truly Distinct Vacation. Costa Rica was the destination and what would have been overwhelming to plan was as easy as getting to the airport. We enjoyed a spectacular hotel, once in a lifetime activities (zip lining, horseback riding, rafting and more), and private transportation that made the entire vacation relaxing for all. It was total family time with new and memorable experiences that we still talk about today. We immediately did a repeat in Iceland and Portugal which offered totally different vacations with distinct activities and fabulous memories. I highly recommend her customized itineraries that provide activities and schedules tailored to your exact needs. She has a gift for making it affordable and indulgent at the same time."
