1. Get Lost on the Trails of St. John

Everyone visits St. John for the beaches, but 60 percent of the island is national park land, laced with hiking trails. The National Park Service offers ranger-led hikes down the spectacular Reed Bay Trail. The 2.4-mile route takes hikers past the ruins of the Reef Bay Sugar Factory as well as petroglyphs created by the Arawaks. The secluded beaches of Genti Bay and Little Reef Bay await tired hikers at the trail's end. Cool off with a swim before tackling the uphill return climb or take it easy and board the park service boat back to Cruz Bay. friendsvinp.org

2. Off Roading in Turks & Caicos

If you liked Go Karts as a kid, then you'll love exploring Grand Turk on an island buggy safari with Chukka. Be warned, the trails are rugged and bumpy. However, the two-hour ride will show you a whole new side of the island, offering a glimpse into its colonial past as you cruise by old ruins and riverbeds. No texting or snapping photos when driving! A photographer will be capturing shots of speedsters so you can remember their adventure. chukka.com

3. Dive with Rays on Grand Cayman

There are more than 200 dive sites on Grand Cayman. Families shoudl experience them in style by chartering a boat that comes with your own private instructor and diving equipment. Cayman Private Charters has boats that range from catamarans to sport yachts. Guests can customize their itinerary, hopping from the island's west side--home to the USS Kittiwake wreck--to the north wall, with its sheer drop off and colorful coral. The north wall is also near the famed Stingray City. Touted as the best 12-foot dive in the world, the area is home to 30 rays that you can feed and touch as you swim by. If you're lucky, captain Stephen will go conch diving and make fresh ceviche at day's end. caymanprivatecharters.com

4. Fly High on a Kite in the Dominican Republic

Steady trade winds and flat, waist-deep water make Punta Cana an ideal location to try the fast-growing sport of kiteboarding (think surfing with a parachute harnessed to your body). Lessons are a must to safely attempt this thrilling aqua adventure. Kite Club Punta Cana is located in the PuntaCana Resort & Club on the lovely Playa Bianca and offers both private and group lessons. Newbies start on the beach, learning simply to fly the kite, then work their way toward strapping on a board and flying through the water. kiteclubpuntacana.com
