Jamaica is a popular spot for family getaways, thanks to its many all inclusive beach resorts. Be sure to expand your experiences beyond your resort! Mouseover the boxes below to check out zip-lining, bobsledding on a mountain coaster, a catamaran trip on Negril's beautiful coast, horse-riding, zip-lining, river adventures, Dunn's River waterfalls, dog-sledding..... Most activities are within day-trip distance of any of the main resort areas: Jamaica is only about 146 miles wide and 51 miles north-south (though road conditions and traffic may add time to your trip.)

But first, a word about those resorts families love so much...

Jamaica All Inclusive Resorts

Families love the conveniences of all inclusive resorts, and Jamaica offers many choices. Beaches is the family resort brand of the Sandals all inclusive resort company, which is based in Jamaica. Families will also find several value-priced all inclusive resorts with waterparks and other fun features for kids. Meanwhile, at the unique Franklyn D. Resort, each family has their own vacation nanny during their stay. Read about these and more Jamaica all inclusive resorts for families.
