Experience Junkanoo at our Turks and Caicos family resort

Our Turks and Caicos family resort provides all sorts of opportunities for making a family vacation with your kids fun. One activity we offer is a Junkanoo bonfire, where the children at the resort entertain the adults.

Junkanoo itself is a traditional street parade with music, which occurs in many towns across the Caribbean, notably in the Turks and Caicos Islands and the nearby Bahamas every Boxing Day (December 26), and New Year’s Day, although similar smaller celebrations are held throughout the year.

The parades feature goatskin drums, jangling cowbells, raucous, and shak-shak music, but what Junkanoo is most famous for are colorful costumes and wonderful masks. Kids who attend our Junkanoo Bonfire will make their own masks, and will also learn simple dances and songs to entertain their parents.

The Somerset offers a complementary Caicos Kids Club program for registered guests with the resort. The program is available for kids ages 5 to 12 years old, and kids under 5 can join but must be accompanied by an adult.. Activities for teens are also available.

Our Caicos Kids Club includes a joint kids dinner several nights a week, which means parents  can enjoy some alone time to have a relaxing dinner together.

Other Kids Club activities include:

  • Beach Games
  • Bingo
  • Bonfire
  • Bushes Craft
  • Fabric Painting
  • Fashion Show
  • Jewelry & Mask Craft
  • Junkanoo Bonfire
  • Movie Night
  • Pajama Jamy Jams

For more relaxed, unstructured activities at the Somerset, families only have to go as far as the beach. And of course, Providenciales has just been named the #1 beach destination in the world by Trip Advisor, who says:

“What makes this little Caribbean island the Travelers’ Choice top beach destination for the second year in a row? Families love it for its uncrowded beaches at Taylor Bay and Grace Bay. Divers and snorkelers flock there to explore the bountiful barrier reef, including Smith’s Reef and its ocean floor walk. And newlyweds find it a perfectly romantic place for a honeymoon.”

So if you’re looking for a family vacation in the Caribbean, the Somerset is the place to be.
