The deal
If you put that family vacation on hold last summer because of the high cost of travel, you may want take a look at this new offer from Cayman Airways. The Caribbean-based airline announced their Summer Splash special that is difficult for anyone traveling with kids in tow to resist.  When booking airfare from New York, Tampa, or Miami to the Cayman Islands kids can fly, stay, eat, and play for free with a paying adult. Families staying four nights at one of the participating hotels can also receive a fifth night free!

Little ones can choose from a variety of activities including a turtle farm, scuba diving and water sports, a submarine exploration, and more. In addition, there are 15 restaurants included in the Summer Splash, and over 25 hotels and resorts to stay in. Plus, you don’t have to decide right now, this offer doesn’t expire until September 2, for travel from June 1 through September 7.

The dollars
This offer is valid for one child 11 years or younger per paying adult. Additional taxes and fees apply.

The catch
The airline only flies from a few U.S. cities, so you’ll have to book a connecting flight from your hometown — meaning extra baggage fees, and no VIP treatment for the kids.
