Hi there! I’m Travelon Jo, the founder/editor of BestFamilyBeachVacations.com which I launched waaaay back in 2004.

We are a family travel website and blog which provides beach vacation tips, planning help, reviews and recommendations for families. If you’re looking for information for best family beach vacations, family travel, recommendations for great resorts or looking for vacation ideas, you’ve come to the right place!

When I was growing up, family vacations consisted of car trips and maybe a cottage rental but I yearned to see the world. So, as soon as I was able, I started traveling – first by myself and then with my husband and young son.

His first trip was while I was pregnant. My son was only six months old when we we traveled all over, we went to the Czech Republic, Mexico (FYI me and seal moment happened in Puerto Vallarta) and the Caribbean … the list goes on.

Before I became a family travel blogger, I earned my business degree, and owned several businesses. I also worked as a travel agent and after leaving my travel agent job, I kept on traveling (40+ countries) and writing. I been to dozens of all inclusive resorts, lots of cruises and some places like Hawaii, Mexico and New York – many times.

Over the years, I’ve published articles on a variety of other great sites. My work has been published in , the Wall Street Journal, the Chicago Tribune, Expedia, and other publications as a freelance writer. What I’m most pleased about is my own blog articles, right on this site.

Now that my son is grown, I still love to travel but these days I enjoy cruising and all-inclusive resorts where I don’t have to worry about the food, lodging or activities.  And I adore Hawaii!!!

That said, I still love exploring new places and going off the beaten path, my last trip was a 10 day Catamaran rental in the BVI’s.
