Denison Yachting | December 26, 2022



For the ultimate luxury vacation, combine a Denison yacht charter with a stay at one of Lacure Villas’ secret escapes in Jamaica.

Jamaica is extremely kid-friendly, with attractions ranging from water parks and dolphin swims to even meeting a local family for a play date. If you are lucky enough to be Jamaica-bound this season, here are some ideas to keep your kids or teens both occupied and happy.

MEET THE PEOPLE

This program, run through Visit Jamaica, connects visitors with locals to help them know “the real Jamaica.” Meet the People tries to match interests, so visiting families can get together with local families for activities such as hikes or swimming.

LIGHT UP YOUR LIFE

What kid doesn’t like things that glow in the dark? After dark, if you go to the Luminous Lagoon at the Glistening Waters hotel and attraction, you’ll see the waters light up with bioluminescence as millions of microorganisms flash each time they’re disturbed. You can take a night dip in the glowing waters that are east of Montego Bay or just watch from a boat.  No matter how you want to see it, it’s a show worth catching.

TAKE A TROT INTO THE DRINK

There are a number of organizations that will take your family on a guided horseback ride through backcountry trails with cliffside views over the sea. The trip ends when you ride your horse into the Caribbean for a swim you won’t forget. Dare we say, it’s possibly more enjoyable than swimming with the dolphins, although we’ll let you be the judge.

VISIT THE BEST DIVES

The best place to view the sunset in Jamaica is on the West Coast. Down the way from Negril, you’ll find Rick’s Cafe perched on the cliffs. You can sip a drink and watch the sunset as your kids dive from the platforms at different heights down into the crystalline waters below. The highest one is 35 feet above the waters, but we suggest you leave that to the professionals.

HIKE DUNN’S RIVER FALLS

Yes, we know that this one is on every tourist list of things to do. Well, that’s because it’s worth doing. You can do a solo or guided hike up the beautiful 600-foot falls, whose waters flow directly into the Caribbean. There are lots of safe viewing areas on the way up, with mini-waterfalls to frolic in and detours through amazing tropical gardens.

THE VILLAS

Of course, one of the best ways to keep kids amused is to stay at your own private Jamaican luxury villa, with a gorgeous swimming pool and attentive staff, who will make them all their favorite things to eat. Whether you want to enjoy panoramic views from an open-air villa atop a seaside cliff or relax in isolation at one of Jamaica’s gorgeous secluded beaches, you are sure to find a Lacure property that suits your desires.
