Caribbean Destination Guides For Families

Ready for a trip to the Caribbean with kids and looking for the best Caribbean destination guides?

You’ve found the right place. We’re your ultimate guide to Caribbean family travel, and this page collects our stuff.  

Mango Tree’s mission is to set parents up for successful family vacations. When we decided to create this new family travel platform, we wondered: Where should we start? It was an easy answer: The Caribbean.  

We’ve personally traveled to more than a dozen Caribbean destinations, including Grenada, St. Lucia, Jamaica, Turks and Caicos, Saint Martin, Roatan, Puerto Rico, Colombia, the U.S. Virgin Islands, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, the Dominican Republic, and the Bahamas.  

Beyond that, we’ve done our research — a lot of it! — and gathered the best tips from our friends, clients, and other Caribbean connoisseurs who share our love for the region.

Below you’ll find our complete destination guides for traveling with kids to top Caribbean destinations — from the most popular islands to the regions hidden gems. Plus, we’ve compiled lists of the best activities with kids, kid-friendly restaurants, best beaches, and more.

But before we dive in – a word about hotels. (You should know, we’re mildly obsessed with finding the best ones.) 

You can’t plan your Caribbean vacation until your hotel is booked. We recommend hotels in some of our blog posts, but our pride and joy is our full collection of family-friendly Caribbean hotels–which you can explore using search filters designed for parents.  

So do not miss our FIND YOUR HOTEL page!  

Our goal? By 2023, we plan to have the most comprehensive resource around for Caribbean family travel.

If that sounds like music to your ears, you’re going to want to save this page and come back and visit often! Even better: Sign up for our weekly newsletter, where we share new Caribbean content and hotel recommendations.


Now, without further ado, enjoy  exploring our best Caribbean travel guides for your next family trip!
