Laugh, Love and Learn During Caribbean Beach Vacations with Kids

December 27, 2019

There’s no time like now to plan a family vacation with all of the hustle and bustle of daily life, coordinating schedules, getting everyone to and from school and activities, scheduling play dates, completing homework and more, there never seems to be enough time for family bonding. This special time in their lives happens in a blink of an eye, so plan a beach vacation with kids to make the most of it while you can.

Viva Resorts offers three incredible accommodations in the Caribbean with family activities that abound in each location. Choose between our two sister hotels in Bayahibe, Viva Wyndham Dominicus Beach and Viva Wyndham Dominicus Palace, and our resort, Viva Wyndham Tangerine in Cabarete. Our all-inclusive resorts are nestled on the sandy beaches of the Dominican Republic with stunning amenities, an array of activities and entertainment options. Plus, we offer connecting rooms so that the entire family can sleep in close proximity. Everyone in the family can find something they love at our waterfront destinations.

Make everyday memorable from the moment you arrive to paradise. Whether your little ones enjoy adventurous or prefer more relaxed activities, we have them covered. For those who like the outdoors, spend your time at our onsite pools. Our resorts features many pools, some even having children-only pools. At Viva Wyndham Dominicus Palace, we have four pools, with two of them being for children. Splash the day away together or let them play on their own while lounging in a cabana on the sidelines. Ask for inflatable toys to make the day even more enjoyable.

Venture down to the beach when you’re feeling like some time in the sand. For families with older children, we have beach games, including organized beach volleyball, soccer and more. Schedule a round with your family to make the competition even more exciting. Beach vacations with kids are the perfect time to introduce them to ocean activities, as well. Sign up for catamaran, kitesurfing or windsurfing lessons, a kayak session or paddle boarding. Or, simply swim in the waves of the clear ocean. Take advantage of the opportunity to be outside with your loved ones in this tropical setting all year long.

The Kids’ Club at all of our resort locations allow parents to get some time to themselves while children have the opportunity to make new friends and learn from our highly-trained staff. With an extensive activities program, our clubs are open to kids of all ages. They can get involved in indoor games, daily planned activities, a trapeze, beach parties and sports, including soccer, basketball, tennis and more. In the evening, we schedule movies and live entertainment, with specialized menus to satisfy their needs. We strive to provide the best care possible in a safe and nurturing environment. Your kids are guaranteed an unforgettable time, while you’re out enjoying your vacation.

For parents who want to plan a date night, we provide attentive babysitting services, as well. Visit our front desk to arrange for a qualified sitter however frequently you wish during your stay. All of our sitters are experienced and engaged, so you can feel assured that everything is taken care of while you have a fun night out. Grab a bite to eat, pop a bottle of champagne at one of our bars or simply take a stroll on the beach to make the most of your evenings in the Dominican Republic. Our hotels are renowned for delicious cuisine and refreshing beverages, so no matter where you choose, we’ll guarantee a great time. Select from a myriad of cuisines, including Italian, Mexican, Asian-fusion, Dominican, American and more. Whether you’re in the mood for a fancy setting or a more casual buffet-style meal, we have it all.

While not part of our all-inclusive packages, many families choose to explore the Dominican Republic outside of our resorts. The variety of tours and excursions allow groups to discover the culture, people, food and the natural settings of each resort location. Appreciate the richness of the Caribbean when you horseback ride, hike or take a boat to the more remote parts of the island. You can see the city, spend time in the mountains or submerge yourself in the underwater world with a scuba diving lesson. Make your vacation a learning opportunity for everyone with new family activities each day. No matter what you decide to do while staying with us, unforgettable moments of laughter, joy and love are sure to be discovered
