Family-Friendly Caribbean Destinations

The tropical climate, clear seas and endless beaches of the Caribbean offer many wholesome activities for those seeking a holiday for the family.

Going the extra mile, resorts now catering to parents with young children, offering a range of supervised activities from kids clubs to sailing camps as well as family-friendly accommodation, so parents can enjoy time both with and without the kids.

Windjammer Landing, St Lucia

The spacious three- and four-bedroom hillside villas with ocean views are only one of the ingredients in the Windjammer Landing's recipe for the perfect family holiday in St. Lucia.

The resort's carefully considered services and facilities address the needs of both parents and children, so that families can strike the right balance between spending time together and pursuing their personal interests.

Parents with babies or toddlers can take advantage of the babysitting service while children aged 4 to 12 can be dropped off, day or evening, at the Jacquot Fun Club. The genuinely fun supervised activities include painting, limbo dancing and coconut bowling for younger ones, and a games room, watersports and themed evenings for the older ones. Knowing their children are in safe hands, parents can head off for a worry-free sunset cruise, tennis lesson or romantic dinner à deux.


The Lodge at Pico Bonito, Honduras

Tastefully appointed cabins surrounded by some of the least explored rainforest in Central America make The Lodge at Pico Bonito ideal for those seeking a safe and informative introduction to the jungle.

Cradled between two roaring rivers, at the foot of a national park, this jungle retreat offers an abundance of hiking trails, thundering waterfalls and an onsite butterfly farm and serpentarium. An excellent team of bilingual guides are always on hand to lead guests on activities ranging from boat trips through tranquil wetlands to white water rafting and more.

With cabins that comfortably sleep two adults and two children, and the option for connecting cabins to accommodate larger groups, it is an ideal getaway for active families. An all-inclusive "Rainforest Retreat" weekend package includes roundtrip airfare from Grand Cayman on Cayman Airways, airport transfers, full board, and various excursions. It is a perfect mini-break for families wanting a change from sun, sea, and sand. Other special-interest packages include "Birder's Paradise" and "Ruins to Rainforest to Reef".


Hotel Guanahani & Spa, St. Barts

St. Barts has long been synonymous with Caribbean luxury and the Hotel Guanahani & Spa is no exception. The brightly painted Creolestyle cottages dotted through the resort's lush gardens charm adults and children alike. Decorated with exotic woods and pastel colours, accommodation ranges from rooms to two bedroom villas with private pools, ideal for families.

Parents need not miss out on the island's infamous boutiques or the resort's superb spa as Le Guanahani offers a daily children's programme from 9am to 5pm, including lunch from the restaurant's kids menu, that will keep little ones busy as bees. Two to six year olds may spend the day singing, drawing, or painting shells while six to twelve year olds have fun swimming, snorkelling, canoeing or playing indoors if it gets too hot. After sunset, babysitters are available to take care of the younger family members so that parents can sample the island's legendary nightlife.
