Speak to our expert Caribbean consultants and they can
tailor-make your ideal Caribbean family
holidays, based on your and the family's specific requirements.
Obviously beautiful beaches framed by swaying palm trees and
turquoise water come as standard, but pick your island right and
you can add delicious dollops of Caribbean culture as well, and
some excellent opportunities for activities as well, from
snorkelling to riding and kayaking and even chocolate tasting.
Even better, all Original Travel holidays come with our
exclusive additional services, such as fast track check-in and
security at the airport, as well as lounge access (even if you're
flying in economy), plus access to our clued-up local Concierges in
most of our destinations to book last minute restaurants and
recommend activities and more. There's more. All children aged 3-10
are given a fun pack designed by the famous kids' party people
Sharky & George, and containing fun challenges and puzzles, and
a quiz about the destination for that all-important educational
So, where the sweetest spots for Caribbean family holidays? One
absolute classic destination is Antigua,
home to some of the best family-friendly hotels in the Caribbean,
and also a perfect place for youngsters to learn to sail, in
sheltered, warm water with excellent instructors. If the children
wanted any inspiration to become good sailors, then you can
introduce them to Antigua's historical heritage with a visit to
English Harbour, where a young British naval officer - one Horatio
Nelson - spent time early in his career.
Another classic for Caribbean family holidays is Grenada.
There are lovely beaches (of course), but this diminutive island
nation also contains a wild hinterland where your cheeky monkeys
can walk through beautiful rainforests to spot actual cheeky
monkeys or visit a chocolate factory to see the chocolate making
process and sample the end product. Offshore there is wonderful
snorkelling, including above the world's first underwater sculpture
One final nod is to Jamaica,
another Caribbean family holiday cracker, and ideal for trips with
teens. There's a huge amount to do on the island, from fun musical
mystery tours exploring the country's reggae legacy and even
staying in hotels with music studios where the children can lay
down their own tracks. There's a strong James Bond connection too,
river rafting, dolphin spotting boat trips, horse riding in the
shallows offshore and waterfall climbing.
So what are you waiting for? Take the children on a Caribbean
family holiday and everything will be irie!
