Fantastic Family Vacations in the Caribbean

by Kevin Patterson

Summer break is upon you, and this year you want to do something fun and memorable for the whole family. So think about planning a Caribbean vacation together! It's something everyone can enjoy. Here are some ideas for a great summer break family vacation in Mexico and the Caribbean.

VIP Kids
Our Resort Pick: Paradisus Playa del Carmen La Esmeralda

The kids are guests of honor in the Family Concierge Suites: milk and cookies at turn down, mini bathrobes and slippers, a kid-friendly mini-bar and even in-room video game consoles. The numerous swimming pools, including one with a pirate ship, and the Kid's Zone with tons of fun activities will get them out into the sunshine. Meanwhile, you can spend some well-deserved time in "the zone," relaxing at Yhi Spa.

Families that Play Together
Our Resort Pick: Sunset Jamaica Grande Resort and Spa

The kids will thank you for letting them spend their summer break at the resort's Pirates Paradise Waterpark. It's got five pools, waterfalls, rope bridges and three gigantic water slides. There's also a supervised kids club called Club Mongoose for the little ones and a Jamrock Teen Center that will keep your teen contented. While the kids are playing and talking about how great their parents are, you'll be enjoying the resort's numerous watersports, Aqua Azul Spa, bars and disco.

It's Your Vacation, Too
Our Resort Pick: Grace Bay Club

Get the vacation you want at a resort that the kids will love. You might check out the state-of-the-art fitness center, sign up for a private yoga class, play some tennis or golf or spend a day at the renowned Anani Spa. The kids will be having a blast at Kids Town which offers an array of supervised activities. So go ahead and enjoy the watersports (free for you) like snorkeling, windsurfing, kayaking and sailing, or unwind by one of the Grace Bay Club's three pools, including one for adults and one for kids.

Family and Wallet Friendly
Our Resort Pick: Barcelo complex in Riviera Maya

Your family and your budget will love the all-inclusive deals at the Barcelo complex in Riviera Maya. With three separate resorts at different price points, you'll get a great deal and fantastic summer memories. It's a huge complex with awesome pools for both kids and adults, two water parks and huge beach areas. The kids will play at the Barcy Kids Club while you get some real rest and relaxation at the Deluxe U-Spa or just soak up the vitamin D.

The Best Vacation...Like, Ever
Our Resort Pick: Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun

Give your teens a summer vacation to brag about. The Core Zone Teens Club at Now resorts offers activities and games to give teens their own space to relax and make new friends. And they don't need to worry about babysitting younger siblings thanks to the Explorer's Club (ages 3-12). That means you'll have plenty of time to unwind at the Now Spa by Pevonia or sip a cocktail at one of the in-pool lounges. The whole family will enjoy the array of delicious cuisine and nightly entertainment.

So get out of town and give yourself and your family a real break during this summer break. A fun, memory-filled family vacation in the Caribbean is just what you all need to relax and recharge - after all, that's what summer break should be about.
