Supervised sand castle competitions and campout adventures are among activities organised by the Explorer’s Club at Sunscape Curaçao, a family-friendly AMResort. Dreams’ first resort and spa property on

St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands will also feature an Explorer’s Club when it opens in November 2014. Throughout the Caribbean, emphasis is

frequently placed on the local environment and community. Children attending the new Nut House and Nature Centre at Rosewood Little Dix Bay, British Virgin Islands, can learn how to protect the environment through arts, crafts and science projects. Over at the Magdalena Grand Beach & Golf Resort’s Club Cee Cee, Tobago, they can learn about the island’s endangered Leatherback, Hawksbill and Green sea turtles and may see their eggs hatch if they are lucky. Windjammer Landing, Saint Lucia, and Mount Cinnamon Resort & Beach Club in Grenada, both operate local community projects. Guests at Windjammer Landing who donate a book for local school children are given a $200 credit. For every Family Escape package booked at Mount Cinnamon, a local child gets the opportunity to attend the resort’s Camp Cinnamon free of charge.

Cuisine is an important element to any Caribbean holiday and for those who want to learn more about it, culinary workshops are on offer in a number of destinations, including Martinique and St. Kitts. Despite its distance from the UK, there

are ways to make a family holiday in the Caribbean more affordable.

The Caribbean – and Jamaica in particular

– was the birthplace of the all-inclusive and there are dozens of resorts to choose from. With meals, snacks, drinks, entertainment and sporting activities paid up-front, families don’t need to keep a constant eye on the budget. However, some services such as babysitting and motorised water-sports may cost extra. Popular family all-inclusive resorts include the Beaches resorts in the Turks & Caicos and Jamaica, Bitter End Yacht Club in the British Virgin Islands, Iberostar Rose Hall and Jewel Resorts’ Runaway Bay Beach & Golf Club in Jamaica and Rex Resorts’ Halcyon Cove Antigua, and Turtle Beach Tobago. Keep an eye out for hotels and resorts offering free child places. Most hotels on St. Kitts offer free rooms for

children under 12 – and they can eat for free at the Ocean Terrace Inn and St. Kitts Marriott Resort. Buccament Bay Resort in St. Vincent is offering two free child places on bookings to January 2015.

At the Caribe Hilton, San Juan, Puerto Rico,

children under 18 stay free in their parents’ room and under fives receive free meals. Single parents qualify for discounted room

rates and complimentary activities such as yoga and water-sports at the True Blue Bay Boutique Resort, Grenada. For larger families or groups of friends, a luxury villa with a housekeeper, nanny or cook may prove a more cost-effective option. They are widely available on islands such as Saint Martin, Antigua, Nevis and Barbados.
