Article written by Andys Rent-A-Car

A vacation in Grand Cayman offers something for everyone, including the kids. Parents will love the shopping and nightlife; children won’t pass up water activities and Stingray City; and everything will enjoy the beautiful beaches. The island also offers plenty of opportunity for exploring and relaxing. But if you’re travelling with children, it might be difficult to plan a trip that will keep adults and kids satisfied. Here’s how to plan a kid-friendly trip to Grand Cayman without losing the adults along the way.

Rent a Large Vehicle

It’s hard to get around the island if you don’t rent a car. You can find affordable rental cars in Grand Cayman at many companies including Andys Rent-A-Car. But the key to planning a kid-friendly trip is renting a vehicle large enough to accommodate everyone and their toys! Consider renting a van or SUV to get you around the city and to all the hot spots. If you have the budget, make it fun for everyone and rent a car in Grand Cayman such as a convertible.

Visit Stingray City

It’s not an aquarium and it’s not a zoo. Stingray City is an area in the Caribbean where people are invited to pet and play with stingrays in their natural habitat. Adults and children alike are sure to enjoy this unique experience near the shore. How many will you get to see? It isn’t unlikely to be surrounded by a dozen of them at one time!

Enjoy Seven-Mile Beach

What’s not to love about one of the most beautiful beaches in the world? Seven Mile Beach is a public beach dotted with resorts, mansions, and hotels. Kids will love the opportunity to go swimming and snorkeling, while parents might enjoy relaxing on the sand or eating at one of the restaurants at the resorts. If you don’t want to spend an entire day there, consider a family picnic under one of the trees.

Go Horseback Riding

Children get restless easily, and parents get tired of finding new ways to entertain them. A great way to keep children entertained and get some much-needed rest is to go horseback riding. It’s not hiking and you don’t have to know the way. Most journeys are led by tour guides, which means all you have to do is enjoy the view.
