On vacation to Abkhazia with children
Children of any age perceive traveling to interesting places with great joy and optimism. Very young people will remember the warm sea and the beach, for older children, the study of ancient historical monuments and nature reserves will be a fascinating adventure, and for teenagers the sea coast will give bright moments of paragliding or boat trips on a yacht. In addition, the climate of Abkhazia is extremely favorable for the child’s body: an ecologically clean region with moist sea air tempers and strengthens health.
Regardless of the season of the year selected for the vacation, experienced travelers advise tourists with children to learn as much as possible about the weather in Abkhazia. Of course, the best period for a holiday with a child begins in May-June and lasts until mid-September. At this time, the weather is usually stable warm, many sunny days, the water temperature is quite suitable for children. However, it must be remembered that the main feature of the climate in the country is unexpected temperature changes, rain showers. On the coast, it so happens that in the morning the weather is fine, and in the evening clouds are clouding the sky, a cool wind blows from the sea. It can rain all night, in the morning again clear sky and bright sun. The lowest risk of such sudden cold snap in the middle of summer, July and August are traditionally considered the warmest months in Abkhazia. During this period, the sea warms up best, a storm is rare. The only rule during this period for all vacationers with children is not to stay under the sun during its most active period, from 11:00 to 18:00. Observing it, tourists will protect themselves and their families from severe burns, overheating and sunstrokes. The use of cosmetics that protect against ultraviolet radiation will also help to avoid redness of delicate baby skin.
With the beginning of autumn, weather conditions at the country’s resorts deteriorate a little, but from mid-September warm weather comes again. The graceful “velvet season” begins. Until the end of October, the entire coast is moderately warm, there is no summer heat. In September-October or at the very beginning of the summer, it is worth traveling with very young children who are very sensitive to high temperatures. Late autumn and winter is not the best time to travel around the country with children, but it is in winter in the city markets of Abkhazia that a variety of fruits and a large number of sea fish appear.
A trip with children in any season of the year will be comfortable if you bring along some warm clothes that will warm and protect from moisture. For example, a warm sweater and raincoat, raincoat, jacket and waterproof shoes can be useful not only in the cool season, but also in the summer high in the mountains in the shade of tall trees or when visiting caves. Do not forget about sunscreens, which doctors recommend applying not only on the beach, but also during long walks and excursions.
The difficulties of acclimatization on vacation
Many parents underestimate the impact of acclimatization on the child’s body. However, it puts a significant burden on the child and without the appropriate actions of the parents and the right behavior can be a real test for all body systems.
The most important factor in the acclimatization process is the length of the rest. With kids, experts do not recommend going on vacation for a short period of time. Optimum length of stay at the sea should be a month or more. In this case, the child will have enough time to get used to the local climate and to relax. In most cases, acclimatization takes about 10 days. A short vacation will bring the child much less useful, the body will experience great stress.
No need to rush to pay off in the first days after arriving at sea. It is better to limit the child’s bathing time to 5 minutes, not more than 5 visits per day. Only after 3-4 days, the time of water procedures can be increased.
In the early days of vacation, many parents may have a lot of reasons to worry about their child’s health. The temperature rises, there is no appetite, excitability is observed. Usually, all the symptoms of getting used to new weather conditions disappear without a trace in a few days. You need to know about this and stay calm.
