The kids are splashing in the pool while beads of water pearl on the outside of your rum drink drenched in lime. The Caribbean sunshine sparkles off the clear blue sea waters as the kids’ laughter hangs in the air, and you think for a moment: this may just be the most perfect family vacation since the inception of time.
Snorkeling, swimming pools, and legends of pirates for the kids; and white sand beaches, icy rum punches, and world-class dining for you, a Caribbean villa vacation will refresh the entire family. With fantastic summer and autumn deals available through WIMCO, now is the time to enjoy a trip to the Caribbean.
With WIMCO offering luxurious private villa rentals on Peter Island, St. Thomas, St. John, Virgin Gorda, and Tortola, the Virgin Islands have everything you need for the perfect family vacation. While in St. Thomas enjoy a sight-seeing gondola ride with Paradise Point Tramway, spend an afternoon at Coral World, a 4.5 acre marine park with an underwater observatory, and make sure you stop by Udder Delite; the frosty milkshakes are the perfect sunny-day treat for the kids, and parents can opt to add Kahlua or Amaretto to their own drinks. Enjoy snorkeling at Trunk Bay in St. John and be sure to do some shopping downtown at Cruz Bay. In Tortola, Long Bay Beach is a dream come true. A mile long stretch of pristine white sand, Long Bay is a perfect place to lay out the beach chairs and take a swim in the crystal clear water. While in Tortola, visit Skyworld, a 360 degree observation tower with views that will leave the whole family speechless.
The Turks & Caicos provide the perfect backdrop for family-fun. December through April, visitors can enjoy whale-watching as a herd of Atlantic Humpback Whales migrate past the islands. Take a trip to the nature reserve of Little Water Cay and visit the indigenous iguanas. While snorkeling, be sure to look out for JoJo, the dolphin which serves as the island’s mascot and often makes appearances in the clear blue waters.
With non-stop flights from many large U.S. airports, getting to St. Martin will be one seamless trip to paradise. Livelier than some other Caribbean destinations, St. Martin offers plenty of activities the whole family will enjoy.
From Marigot to Grand Case, the cities of St. Martin offer everything from duty-free shopping to gourmet dining to cultural and historic attractions. With snorkeling, scuba diving, tennis, golf, horseback riding, pristine beaches, and so much more, there is nothing St. Martin lacks. Many of the private villas on St. Martin also feature bedrooms of equal size, perfect for two families traveling together.
