Turks and Caicos promises plenty of adventures and activities for children and adults alike. Tear-Free Travel recommends taking a boat tour to go island hopping on the Turks and Caicos Cays. The excursion is friendly for children of all ages, including the very young, since there is not a lot of walking involved and Big Blue Unlimited keeps their boat tour groups relatively small. You also have the chance to snorkel and visit very cool underwater sites. Remember to pack plenty of snacks to keep your kids happy and full on the trip. Children can also spend a few hours with iguanas on Little Water Cay. Also known as Iguana Island, this is a popular spot for families with kids of all ages. The whole family can splash around on the beach and watch the iguanas run around the island. Read more here!

Winter blues have you feeling down? Pack up and take your family to the sunny islands of Turks and Caicos! Anna Julien, Walking on Travels, recommends renting a car near the airport to make transporting children in car seats easier during your stay. Traffic lanes are reversed from the American style, so it may take some getting used to. Renting a car is the easiest way to get around the island, especially if you are staying in a house, instead of at a resort. While Grace Bay Beach is still a favorite among the best blogs for things to do in Turks and Caicos, Anna also recommends Sapodilla Bay. The bay is a beautiful spot that is also kid-friendly, with shallow water and plenty of water sports. Also, if your family enjoys being adventurous with the local cuisine, Las Brisas is a must for lunch or dinner! Read more here!
