One great way to maximize the fun of your Caribbean family vacation is to plan it around any local island or town festivals. In many cases you will have a lot of fun and *free* activities to enjoy—and many of them are specifically designed to be kid friendly.
In the Cayman Islands, you can take advantage of Pirate Week which includes fireworks, parades, song contests and even a mock pirate invasion! The Cayman Islands usually hold this festival in the fall—sometimes it even coincides with Columbus Day weekend so pack your bags, bring the kids, and join the fun! Arrrrrr, Matey!
