Vail is arguably the best ski resort in the world for a family or a group of mixed abilities. The slopes have something for everyone from beginner to expert and the superlative snow record makes for some mouthwatering skiing. The resort has it all - great accommodation, quality restaurants, an impressive service based ethos and even charm that is often absent from purpose built resorts. The pedestrianised streets are packed with bars, restaurants and boutiques to enjoy after a hard (or even an easy) day on the mountain.
While Colorado's resorts are some of the sunniest, after a week of skiing you may be yearning to swap white snow and blue skies for white sand and turquoise water. The Northern Hemisphere winter is a great time to visit Mexico's Yucatan peninsula. Direct flights make heading south straightforward. A swim in the Caribbean and an afternoon in the sun should ease any aching legs and sailing, diving and snorkeling, not to mention golf awaits at the Rosewood Mayakoba, a tranquil hideaway which welcomes families warmly. If you can drag yourself away, nearby ancient ruins could have your children gazing in wonder.
All our itineraries are customized so any aspect of it can be amended to suit you.

When to go
Vail's ski season coincides perfectly with the Yucatan's dry season so this itinerary can work well all winter long.
