THINGS TO DO

FAMILY-FRIENDLY FUN AT LA SIESTA

Adventures for all ages await at La Siesta. Learn how to paddle board, bounce on a water trampoline in the saltwater lagoon, explore by paddle board or kayak, and even swim with dolphins!

Toddlers & Young Kids

There's plenty to do for the little ones in Islamorada! Hop in a kayak for a relaxing trip exploring the beautiful island scenery, or enjoy a splash in the on-site freshwater pool before playing in the sand by La Siesta's private beach.

Teens & Tweens

Paddle boards, snorkel masks, kayaks, bicycles and tropical teen fun are all included at La Siesta. Plus, the resort shuttle offers access to our sister properties and their amenities, including Postcard Inn and its onsite Dive Shop and legendary marina with fishing charters leaving its docks daily. Pelican Cove's weekly Fish Like a Local events are also the ideal opportunity to reel in your own trophy!

After all that adventuring, grab a light lunch and island-style snacks from La Siesta's poolside Wild & Lime.
