As Jean-Michel Cousteau says, “All kids start out as scientists, constantly asking ‘Why? What’s that? How does it work?’” Ritz Kids experiences at The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay tap into that innate curiosity by introducing our youngest guests to both the natural wonders and the rich cultural traditions of our kid-friendly resort. Immersive and adventurous, the resort’s experiences provide your child with enthralling activities to reward their interest in the beauty and workings of the world we live in. With a diverse collection of vacation activities based on the four pillars of the program – water, land, environmental responsibility and culture – kids are swept away by everything from coral reefs and forests, to recycling and sustainability, storytelling, art and even food.
