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

More about me….

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 family.

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 (41+ 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 family is older, 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.

My Advice for Travelers

As a travel expert, my advice for travelers is to always be open-minded and embrace new experiences while traveling. Don’t be afraid to venture off the beaten path and try new things – it’s often those moments that turn into the most cherished memories. Also, always do your research before traveling and plan ahead to make the most of your time and budget. And most importantly, don’t forget to have fun and enjoy every moment with your loved ones.
