Explore the island together by jeep, open air safari van, or air-conditioned rental car. You can drive to the easternmost point of the United States, Point Udall, and makes guesses en route about whether someone actually lives in the hilltop castle (yes) or whether the giant radio telescope is contacting aliens (no). .
Head west through the rain forest where even the most jaded teenager will laugh out loud when one of the Mt. Pellier Hut Domino Club's famous pigs leaps up in his stall to quench his thirst. Or explore the old fashioned way— even with no past experience, children (age 5 or older) and teens can ride horseback through the rainforest up scenic ridges and down to the beach, seeing old plantation ruins along the way.
Take a sailing tour to Buck Island; you'll understand why the island and its reef have been made a National Park. There are concessionaires that offer full and half day trips to Buck Island, so getting there is not a problem. Usually the problem lies in getting you to leave. Turtle Beach on Buck's west end has been voted one of the world's most beautiful beaches by National Geographic. The underwater trail is a snorkelers' dream come true. If you're not a snorkeler, don't worry! Your professional guides can make assured snorkelers of even the most timid swimmers. Take a guided snorkeling tour of the underwater trail and surround yourself with coral, angel fish, and crustaceans. Since the trail is protected by the national park system, capacity is limited - so do not delay in reserving your space on one of several boats that sail to Buck Island daily.
