There’s nothing like a family vacation. That special time when you’re all together, with no responsibilities, and your only goal is to have fun and make memories to last a lifetime. If you’re considering the Caribbean for your next getaway, you should look no farther than Grand Cayman. As US News & World Report states, “The charming Cayman Islands continue to be a coveted Caribbean getaway for both adventure- and relaxation-seeking travelers.” We couldn’t agree more.
With friendly locals, a laid back vibe and abundant natural beauty, Grand Cayman boasts many family-friendly resorts located on coveted Seven Mile Beach, that are close to shops, restaurants and bars. Top resorts include: The Ritz Carlton, The Westin, Caribbean Club, Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort and the Kimpton Seafire Resort.
Top of our list of Grand Cayman must-do’s is to charter a boat. What a surprise! Chartering a boat with an experienced crew to show you the island will be the highlight of your trip. It’s a good idea to check out private yacht charters, like yours truly, if you have children with you. That way you have full use of the yacht, including restrooms and staterooms, for when the kids need a break. An air conditioned cabin are a welcome respite to enjoy a snack or a nap. Comfortable sun pad and pillows on the deck are a fabulous way to check out the scenic views while relaxing for a bit.

Food is such an important part of any family vacation that we’d be remiss if we didn’t talk about it. When you’re traveling with kids, especially picky eaters, it can be difficult to find dining options to please the whole family. Grand Cayman is a foodie’s paradise, often referred to as the ‘Caribbean’s Culinary Capital’. We host one-of-a-kind food festivals throughout the year and our restaurants offer everything from local casual fare to five star dining, with cuisines from all over the world represented. The wide variety of restaurants we have should appease even the pickiest of eaters, but during your time on the water, you may not have the options your family needs. That’s why we offer many food options and work with our guests to create a menu that works best for their group. We even have private chefs available to be on board to cook a Five Star Barbecue to be served on the boat or the beach.
