Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort is a beautiful, tropical, and fun retreat. There’s no shortage of recreation here among the pools, beaches, boat and bike rentals, fantastic jogging path, and picnic areas. But you might not realize that there are educational opportunities here, too.
This resort consists of six themed island villages: Aruba, Barbados, Jamaica, Martinique, Trinidad North, and Trinidad South. Each village sports vibrant Caribbean colors and architecture similar to what would be found on that island. There are bus stops at each village where Disney transportation will pick up and drop off. And it is here where we find our learning moments.
Each bus stop has a poster with fun facts about that island. They might describe the climate, location, natural resources, languages, or history. They are all different so take some time to seek out all six.
