The Carribean welcomes families with balmy weather, all-inclusive resorts, and pristine beaches, spread throughout destinations like Aruba and Turks and Caicos. Arrive with kids by plane or take a cruise ship, an exciting way to explore more than one destination with the comfort of a pre-planned itinerary. Spend your days soaking up the sun on Grand Cayman’s seven-mile beach or navigating the Bahamas by boat, entertaining children with a variety of amenities at kid-friendly resorts like The Atlantis. Islands like St. Lucia and Puerto Rico are packed with outdoor activities for more adventurous children. Explore St. Lucia’s drive-in volcano or take a dip in its sulfur springs while animal lovers can revel in the atmosphere of El Yunque Rain Forest in Puerto. Or, immerse yourself in Carribean culture throughout Barbados and Antigua, a great way to discover local flair through museums and wildlife sanctuaries. Families looking for a more European vibe can consider visiting Saint Martin, Curacao, Saint Barts, Dutch, and French colonies just north of South America.
We have visited the island of Antigua twice now with our children. On our recent trip, the kids were 1 and 5 years old. On both vacations, we chose to stay at The Verandah Resort & Spa which we absolutely loved. This resort is located on the Atlantic side of the island and was very family-friendly.
