Some parents think that Jamaica is not family-friendly due to the negative exposure on the media. Well, Jamaica couldn’t be more family-centered destination. Several Jamaican properties are primarily built to cater families only so imagine kid-friendly activities such as water parks, camping, candy booths and many more without the annoying bar noise or drunk guests.


Some families prefer a personalized house rental in Jamaica where parents can avail babysitting services and leave their kids on supervised activities while they relax by the beach, go on adults-only adventures or just take some alone time. But of course, since you went on a holiday together as a family, you have to share some exciting adventures in the island that are fun for all members of the family.

Check out this list below to find out about the awesome things you can do and see with your family in Jamaica.

Visit Devon House 

This place is one of the most significant national landmarks in Jamaica. This 19th century mansion was previously the home to the island’s first black millionaire named as George Stiebel.  He earned his wealth in Venezuela and decided to spend the rest of life on his homeland so he came back to Jamaica and build this mansion.


Swim with the Dolphins


That surely sounds exciting! This is one of those fun activities that all members of the family can truly enjoy. Bring your entire family to Dolphin Cove and fulfill an amazing opportunity to have close encounters with the dolphins. They are simply adorable and a chance to swim with them is one of the best memories that could last a lifetime. There are also opportunities to encounter friendly sharks and rays after you’ve made friends with the dolphins.
