Best Caribbean Islands for Families
The world, through a child’s eyes, is an incredible place. Traveling as a family allows you to engage in their discovery. The Caribbean islands offer a multitude of options for families seeking a memorable vacation.
WHERE TO STAY
The Caribbean is home to dozens of hotels and resorts that would be terrific choices for a family vacation. If you’d like more private space to gather as a family, there are plenty of private villas of all sizes.
A family resort doesn’t only refer to an excellent place for kids anymore, but rather a place catering to all family members. While including kid-tested and parent-approved activities, they also offer a wide range of amenities preferred by adults. Many of the kid programs found at hotels in the Caribbean offer childcare in the evening, allowing mom & dad the opportunity to have an adults-only dinner.
Many Caribbean family resorts are all-inclusive, like Beaches Resorts, allowing parents not to reach for their wallets every time their child works up an appetite. Beaches Resorts has properties in Negril and Ocho Rios, Jamaica as well as their best family resort in Turks + Caicos.
All-inclusive resorts have plenty to keep everyone busy – with watersports, exercise classes, art classes, culinary journeys, & more already included in the price. Inclusive or not, all family resorts have renowned kids clubs – allowing kids to enjoy endless amenities designed just for them in a group setting. Most kid’s clubs start at age 2 or 3, but our travel advisors can create a personalized family vacation for you, where even the youngest family members are considered.

Family-friendly hotels often have supervised kid’s clubs or activity centers where children can engage in age-appropriate activities and interact with other kids. These may include arts and crafts, games, movie nights, sports, and educational programs.
Many of the travel industry’s most recognizable brands have excellent kid clubs and programs making them very popular for family vacations. Four Seasons Resorts has Kids for All Seasons clubs at their properties in Anguilla, Los Cabos, Nevis, and The Bahamas. The Ritz Carlton has Ritz Kids at their hotels in Aruba, Grand Cayman, St. Thomas, and Turks + Caicos.
