Best island for nature + kids that is safe and affordable

Jump to last reply

We're considering a family trip to the Caribbean (2 kids under 6 years old) and would like advice on a safe, affordable (no villas for $1,000/night) island that is great for nature activities and young kids. By nature activities, I include light hiking, going to the beach, easy kayaking, seeing local animals/plants, and generally having more of a nature experience than shopping, water parks, jet skis, etc. We like visiting botanical gardens and nature reserves.

My husband and I have been to Puerto Rico many times (due to work, but we got to know the island pretty well) but would like to branch out and visit a different island.

Also, we would like an island that is easy to visit, by which I mean ease of getting around (no long drives over bad roads) and minimal lodging changes. We'd like an island where English or Spanish are spoken by enough people that we don't have to struggle with language. Again, an easy trip that is as much a vacation as traveling with 2 small kids can be.

Seeing sea turtles hatchlings (for my older child) is a plus.

Thank you for your advice!!
