Large groups can make for some of the best vacations, but also some of the most difficult to plan. If you have been put in charge of planning a group vacation for your friends and/or family, here are some tips from Secrets Maroma Beach for making your group vacation a success.
- Have a meeting. Whether in person, online or over the phone, it is important to have an initial discussion to determine the travel dates, destination, resort and payment options.
- Assign roles. It may be difficult for one person to handle all of the travel details, so assigning roles will help one person from feeling overwhelmed. We recommend appointing a point person for payments, travel and accommodation logistics and group activities.
- Allow downtime. When planning a group vacation it is important to plan a few activities that everyone can participate in together but also allow people time to do things on their own.
- Pick a destination that caters to groups. Resorts, like Secrets Maroma Beach, cater to large groups and can help alleviate some of the stress associated with planning a group vacation.
