While the Caribbean may seem like it’s light years away, many of the islands that make up this part of the world are just a few hours’ flying time away from much of the U.S.
Depending on where you live, you could catch an early flight and be relaxing on a tropical beach in the Caribbean by noon, and often with less travel stress (and money spent) than you think.
The broad range of lodging options, including all-inclusive and beachfront resorts, also make the Caribbean a hot destination for families with kids in tow. Still, some islands offer more amenities and safer surroundings for families than others. Here are the ten best.
Thanks to the plethora of all-inclusive options flanking the entire island of Jamaica, families flock to destinations like Ochos Rios, Negril, and Montego Bay in droves. Each of these beach towns offers stretches of white sand beach, turquoise waters perfect for swimming, and gracious Jamaican hosts.
Jamaica also offers some of the most affordable lodging options among the Caribbean islands. You can frequently book all-inclusive resorts such as the Holiday Inn Jamaica Resort or the Sunscape Splash Resort and Spa, both in Montego Bay, for less than $200 per night for a family of four.
