My top picks for family vacations in the Caribbean...
Grand Cayman: One of the most kid friendly islands I have visited. The beach is calm and shallow. The island is very safe and easy to get around. Take the family for an unforgettable Swim With the Dolphins experience. Visit the Turtle Farm for a chance to see and hold the turtles. If you've ever wondered what it would be like to feed stingrays in waist-deep water, then head to Stingray City. An excursion will take you to a submerged sandbar out at sea. Friendly stingrays will be gliding toward the visitors in search of a snack.
St. Lucia: Known for its lush terrain and scenic beauty… hike the Pitons, visit the Drive-In Volcano where smoky wisps of sulfur seep from the ground. Diamond Falls Botanical Gardens & Mineral Baths is adjacent to the volcano; here travelers can take a dunk in the restorative mineral waters bubbling up from the ground. Zip line through the rainforest for a thrilling experience. The small towns have chic shops and gourmet restaurants.
St. John: This island is a nature lover’s dream. Two thirds of the island is the Virgin Islands National Park. The backdrop to the spectacular beaches is this beautiful forest. The island is accessible via a 20 minute ferry from St. Thomas. There are so many beaches to explore you can visit a different one each day of your vacation. Some beaches are only accessible via a hike, making it that much more exciting! The island is safe and beautiful with picture perfect scenery at every turn.
Turks and Caicos: These islands are a Caribbean paradise. The bright blue ocean hues are like no others. Snorkeling in one of the largest reefs in the world will be one of the highlights of your trip. There is a Beaches resort on Providenciales that receives nothing but the highest praises from all my clients who have stayed there. It is an all-inclusive family resort with gourmet restaurants, activities for adults and children, and even Sesame Street characters for the young ones to enjoy.
