The British Virgin Islands are, for many, the quintessential islands of the Caribbean. Not as fast or busy as the neighboring U.S. Islands, the BVI is exotic, multifaceted, and yet serene. The pace of life seems slower here, and with not so much to distract you, a trip to the islands lend themselves perfectly for getaways with or without kids. Thing is, if the whole family is in tow, what to do with the little ones? It can be hard explaining to youngsters the appeal of doing nothing on the beach for hours on end, but rest assured – with a little forethought, there is plenty to do in the British Virgin Islands for the whole family.

From the historic homes that stand proudly in Old San Juan to the glitzy casinos in Condado, San Juan is a mesh of history and fun. Founded in 1509, the Puerto Rico capital is the oldest city under US authority, so it’s with good reason there are a few World Heritage-listed sites. When you’re done touring the island’s past, hike through the rainforest, go kayaking or do another outdoor activity that will allow you to marvel at Puerto Rico’s natural beauty.

Boggy Peak used to be the name of a 1,300-foot hill for hikers and mango farmers in the Caribbean. On President Obama’s 48th birthday (2009), the peak was renamed “Mount Obama” to honor his achievement in becoming the first Black President of the U.S.
Visitors to Antigua and Barbuda can have a lovely hike and get lost in the Macaw Palm Trees, Milk Trees, and Maiden Ferns (ah yes, and the Mount Obama White Lonchocarpus) in what is now known as Mount Obama National Park.
